VARIETY SCREENING SERIES - TERMS OF USE / RSVP POLICY

By attending a film screening presented by Variety Inc. as part of the Variety Screening Series, you agree to the following guidelines:
  1. 1. The Will-Call table opens 1 hour / 30 min. prior to the beginning of each screening. Entrance lines are formed adjacent to the theatre entrance. Guests may queue in line as early as two hours prior to the start of the screening. Attendees may NOT bypass the line to retrieve tickets ahead of those guests that have been waiting.
  2. 2. Your reservation/confirmation is absolutely non-transferable. You must provide a printed confirmation at the guest Will-Call table when picking up your ticket(s).
  3. 3. The Variety Screening Series is intended for voting guild members and guests of Variety ONLY. Your name must appear on Variety's invite list.
  4. 4. You must bring a photo ID and/or valid guild membership card to present at entry or entry will be denied. Please note, the guild membership number on your card MUST MATCH the guild membership number you entered on your reservation.
  5. 5. We overbook each screening to ensure a full house for our Q&A guests, therefore seating is NOT guaranteed. Seating is assigned on a first come, first served basis. If you have not checked in at least 20 minutes prior to the start of the screening, your reservation may not be honored.
    NOTE: For "popular" films, the theater is likely to reach capacity quickly. Please plan your arrival to the theatre accordingly.
  6. 6. Each screening ticket will have an assigned seat number. Tickets will be distributed in order of guest arrival at the Will-Call table. Seat sections in demand will be distributed first. Seat requests will NOT be permitted. Assigned seating will be strictly enforced.
  7. 7. If you and your guest arrive separately, we can hold a ticket at the guest Will-Call table for your guest. Tickets will be released to another attendee if your guest has not claimed his/her ticket 20 minutes prior to the start of the screening.
  8. 8. There is no admittance into the auditorium after the screening has begun without a theatre ticket and/or assigned seat. NO Exceptions!
  9. 9. Due to the overwhelming response and support of the Variety Screening Series, we DO NOT offer rain checks to confirmed guests that are unable to be accommodated due to theater capacity.
  10. 10. Screenings will be monitored for unauthorized recording. By attending, you agree not to bring any audio or video recording device or camera into the theater. Any attempted use of a recording device will result in immediate removal from the theater, forfeiture of the device, and you may be subject to criminal prosecution and/or civil liability.
