How do I purchase tickets?
2017 ACT festival tickets are on sale through the Lincoln Center ticketing office.

How do I pick up my tickets purchased online?
Tickets purchased online can be picked up at the following Will Call locations:

  • More than ONE DAY before a scheduled film screening: The Lincoln Center Box Office, which is open between 12 p.m. and 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday only.
  • DAY OF SCREENING: Beginning one hour prior to each film screening at the screening venue box office – either the Lincoln Center Box Office, OR the temporary Lory Student Center Theatre Will Call and Box Office located in the LSC Theatre lobby.

Can I purchase tickets at the door?

Tickets to each film can be purchased at the door, based on availability.  Advanced ticket purchase is recommended. We will release empty seats 5 minutes prior to screening showtimes for films in “Standby,” which means the allotment of advance tickets has been reached. The released seats are deemed Standby Tickets and will be sold on a first come, first serve basis. Standby lines form one hour prior to a screening.

Where do I exchange my voucher?

Festival vouchers must be exchanged for a festival screening ticket in advance of the screening you wish to see, pending seat availability. You can exchange them in person:

  • At the Lincoln Center Box Office during regular hours
  • Up to one hour before any screening occurs at either venue, so long as screening tickets are still available.

How early should I arrive to the film screening?

Theater doors will open roughly 30 minutes prior to each film screening. You may begin line up one hour prior to the film screening time.

Can I bring my child/children?

Festival films do not carry a MPAA rating. We recommend watching the film trailer and reading the synopsis to determine if the film content is appropriate for your child/children. Please note, an individual ticket will be needed for any child sitting in a seat.
