ADVANCE SALES: Advance purchases can be made online or by phone during regular business hours (M-F, 9-4 PM).

DAY-OF-SHOW SALES & WILL CALL: Box office opens 30 minutes before show time (one hour prior Opening Night). Late seating discouraged and is at house manager’s discretion.

STANDBY TICKETS:  When a film sells out of advanced tickets, it becomes “Standby Only.” Standby indicates that we’re sold out of advanced tickets for this screening, however, same-day-tickets may still be available at the door. Approximately, 15 minutes before the scheduled start time, ticket buyers from the standby line will be admitted based on availability inside the theater. Standing in the standby line does not guarantee admittance to the theater. Please look for signs to get in  the designated standby line or ask an usher.

SOLD OUT: Once all advanced and standby tickets are released, a show is sold out.

DISCOUNTS apply to current SJCC members, students w/valid ID, youth under 13, and seniors 65+. Card-holding TeenTix members pay $5 for teens (day-of-show at box office, cash only; subject to availability; no advance/online sales), and $10 for designated Sunday films for a teen and a companion.  Groups of 12 or more automatically receive $2 off each full-priced adult ticket. No double discounts.

PROCESSING FEES: $2 per ticket | $5 per Pass or 8-Pack purchases. Fees waived for current SJCC and card-holding TeenTix members.  When purchasing tickets online, SJCC members must click "redeem benefits" and enter contact info to remove processing fee(s). NOTE: Tickets for this year's Centerpiece: THE ANCIENT LAW co-presented by STG + SJFF for Silent Movie Mondays at The Paramount Theatre are processed through STG's website and box office, and STG fees apply for everyone.

PRIORITY SEATING: Pass holders go in first (Full Festival and VIP Passes). Please have passes ready to avoid delays. Additional guidelines on the back of your pass. Sorry, there is no priority seating for 8-pack purchasers.
