* Ticket Policies
Tickets may be exchanged at the discretion of SpIFF but are non-refundable except under extraordinary circumstances.
Having a ticket assures you of access to a seat only until the scheduled screening time. In the event of a sold-out show, SpIFF may give preference to patrons at the theatre who wish to purchase tickets. If you have a ticket or a pass, please arrive at least 15 minutes before a scheduled start time to ensure your seat. Arrival after the scheduled start time may jeopardize your seat in the case of a sold out show. If an exceptional circumstance arises, please call ahead to (509) 720-7743 and we will attempt to hold your seat.
Advance Tickets may be purchased online up to midnight the day of a show (i.e. the midnight prior to the show). For same-day sales, please visit the SpIFF Box Office located at the venue where the film you’d like to see is playing.
If Advance Tickets sell out online, a limited number of Same-Day tickets might still be available at the SpIFF box office, so don’t give up on a show just because it’s listed as sold out online! Call ahead (509) 720-7743 or drop by to find out.
There is NO processing fee.
Tickets purchased online must be picked up at Will Call.
Will Call Process:
Please bring a printed copy of your receipt and/or have proof of ID to retrieve your tickets.
You may pick up your Will Call tickets at any time during the festival when the Will Call table is open. Will Call opens 30 minutes before the first screening of the day at the venue of your screening.
Please arrive at least 20 minutes before showtime to claim your tickets.
In the event of a sold out show, any unclaimed Will Call tickets will be released 10 minutes before the scheduled start of the show in order to accommodate moviegoers on standby at the box office. Please be aware that shows can sell out very quickly at the Magic Lantern Theatre
*10 for the price of 9!
