Oh no! The film you wanted to see is in RUSH. Don’t give up.

Come down to the theatre and stand in the RUSH line. At a few minutes to show-time, if there are empty seats, we’ll sell you a ticket to the film. RUSH lines usually start to form anywhere from 60 - 30 minutes before show time, but the really dedicated could be there much earlier. The RUSH lines are separate from the lines for ticket holders. Please look for the RUSH Line signs.

A couple of important things: 
  • RUSH is cash only.
  • Your membership time-block privileges won’t get you a RUSH ticket.
  • AIFF RUSH tickets are the same price as the box office.
  • There is no discount for RUSH
Your friends and neighbors are seeing films in RUSH, and you should too.
