The Basics: Tickets vs Passes

So you want to see some movies. Great! But what’s the best way? It all depends on what works for you.

I WANT THE FULL FESTIVAL EXPERIENCE–MOVIES, PARTIES, AND ALL. Then you want an all-access FESTIVAL PASS.

I WANT TO SEE A LOT OF MOVIES. Then you want an ALL-MOVIE PASS. You’ll get priority admission to every regularly-scheduled Cinetopia film, all 10 days.

BUT I’M A STUDENT. No problem–we’ve got a STUDENT version of the All-Movie Pass as well!

I WANT TO SEE A COUPLE MOVIES, BUT I DON’T WANT TO COMMIT. Have you considered one of our 4-PACKS? You get credits for four tickets on your account, which you can then redeem for any regular-scheduled film throughout the festival.

I’M INTERESTED IN ONE MOVIE/DECIDING AS I GO. Individual tickets will be available for all regularly-scheduled films throughout Cinetopia, both online or the day of at the venue.

The Fine Print

Passes are non-transferable. Cinetopia reserves the right to request a pass holder surrender their pass at any time. Pass holders must vacate the auditorium between screenings.

For priority admission, pass holders must be in line at least 30 minutes prior to the film’s scheduled start time. Remaining seats unclaimed by pass holders will be sold to the public starting 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start time.

The purchase of a ticket DOES NOT guarantee a seat. Seating is limited. A refund will be issued if you bought a ticket and did not make it into a seat. Please line up at least 30 minutes before showtime at the venue of your screening. There will be signs in each line for the movie you will see.

FAQs

I LOST MY TICKETS, WHAT SHOULD I DO?

In the event that you have misplaced your Cinetopia tickets, please contact the Michigan Theater Box Office at (734) 668-8397. Cinetopia personnel will locate your ticket order in our system by order number or the last name of the purchaser.

IF A SCREENING SELLS OUT ONLINE, WILL TICKETS STILL BE AVAILABLE?

Potentially. To check on availability of tickets the day of a screening, simply show up at the venue 30 minutes before the screening begins and ask!

CAN TICKET PURCHASES BE REFUNDED OR EXCHANGED?

We regret that tickets cannot be refunded except in the case of a cancelled screening or over-capacity. Exchanges, when possible, will be subject to a $3 processing fee.
