Last-minute tickets ­— rush tickets — may be available just before show time when advance tickets have sold out. A rush line will form outside the venue usually one hour before show time. Approximately 10 minutes prior to the screening, empty seats are counted and will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis to those in line. Rush tickets will only be sold to those actually waiting in line. One rush ticket per person in the rush line, and there are no guarantees.

Please note that there will be no rush tickets for a sold-out virtual screening.


Unless otherwise noted, all seating for CAAMFest screenings and events is general admission, i.e. first-come, first-served, non-reserved seating. Ticket-holder and Rush lines (queues) will be held outside of the venues, please plan accordingly.


  • All ticket sales are final. No refunds, exchanges or reprints on any purchases.
  • Ticket holder must arrive at least 15 minutes before show time to guarantee entry.
  • CAAMFest is not responsible for lost, stolen or misplaced tickets. We will be unable to admit patrons without tickets. All seating is at management’s discretion.
