HOW TO SEE THE FILM OF YOUR CHOICE

60 minutes before showtime: Go to the theatre where film will be shown, show your pass, and pick up a numbered ticket. This is first-come, first-served basis and guarantees you a seat. Once you have a ticket, you may leave the line until 30 minutes before showtime, at which point you will line up with other moviegoers according to your ticket number. People seem to enjoy the jostle of finding their place in the line.

 

30 minutes before showtime: The numbered ticketholder line moves one by one into the theatre. If you have a numbered ticket and the line has already started to move when you return to the venue, you’re still guaranteed a seat. If you can’t find your numbered place in line, you simply join at the back; you are still guaranteed a seat. Directors and Moguls - look for the theatre manager who will grant you immediate access to locate a seat of your choosing.

 

Latecomers: If you show up after the 30-minute deadline with your pass but don’t have a numbered ticket, or you are a Director or Mogul passholder who has not reserved a ticket, go immediately to the theatre manager to see if there’s availability. If the house is full, there will be time to get to a different venue and still get a seat for another great film.

 

RUSH TICKETS - $12 - When a theatre is not filled, we sell tickets for that film. Rush-ticket buyers (who have no passes) gather in the rush-ticket line. Once the passholder line starts moving, the theatre managers know exactly how many seats are available. Rush tickets are sold 10 minutes before the movie begins until the lights go down.

GETTING AROUND: WALK OR TAKE THE SHUTTLE!

Parking downtown is limited, but you can easily walk to all seven of our theatres. And

our free festival shuttle takes you to all of our venues. Park at the Jefferson Transit Park-and-Ride near Safeway, at the Visitor’s Information Center, 440 12th Street. Take Jefferson Transit downtown and continue your festival travels on our free PTFF shuttle bus (See Map for the festival bus route.) Sorry, NO Jefferson Transit on Sunday. Best bet: Park Uptown or on the hill and take the shuttle bus downtown.


TAKE HOME A SOUVENIR

We carry PTFF logo clothing, caps, mugs, posters and filmmakers’ DVDs. The 2014 festival poster and signed prints by artist Anne Schreivogl are for sale. Merchandise is available on Taylor Street, thanks to Sideshow Variety staffing our Wine and Beer Garden and sales booth.
