Any memberships purchased between March 15, 2020 and July 31, 2021 will not be activated until the start of August 2021. Please pick up your membership cards from us at the box office the next time you visit the theater. In an effort to be more eco-friendly, we will not be mailing your cards to you unless you expressly request us to.

Those who were members prior to our closure on March 15, 2020 will be given a three month membership extension upon our reopening. This means your new expiration date will be October 31, 2021. (You don't need to worry about getting a new membership card, you'll be good to go!)

Please remember to bring your membership cards with you to the theater to expedite service at the box office.
