Once the allotment is reached, any remaining pass holders may choose to wait, and will be on standby. At 10 minutes before show time, after queued pass holders and tickets holders are seated, any empty seats will be made available to the pass holders in standby. If there are still seats remaining after the standby pass holders are seated, tickets will be sold to those waiting in the ticket holder standby line.

Queue Cards

Queue Cards are distributed for individual shows to better control entry and determine as quickly as possible when a show is expected to reach the passholder allotment. Only one Queue Card per passholder present will be issued. The Queue Card must be presented with a valid pass for admittance.

Passholders can obtain a Queue Card while awaiting entry into a specified auditorium 45 minutes before the next performance until the passholder allotment is reached. With a Queue Card a passholder does not have to wait in line. This Queue Card will guarantee entry into an assigned screening up to 20 minutes before showtime. Holders of Queue Cards are not guaranteed entry after this time.
