Standby Lines will form thirty (30) minutes prior to show time. Ticket holders must arrive no later than ten (10) minutes prior to the event start time to guarantee entrance. Any available seats will be released to the Standby Line at that time.

Please note: All Standby tickets will be sold at regular pricing only. Box Office will only accept CASH during standby. 

Doors Open 
Doors for screenings at The Wellmont will open 1 hour before to show time.  Please allow plenty of time as there will be a bag check, vaccination card and ID check, prior to getting your tickets scanned.

The doors for screenings at The Clairidge and MKA will open 30 minute prior to show time.  Again, we’ll be checking vaccination records, IDs as well as scanning your tickets.
