March 26 – April 5, 2020

Buy Tickets

All regular Festival screenings are $12 for adults and $10 for students (students must purchase tickets in person and present a valid student ID to receive discounted price).  We also have special matinee pricing of $6 for all films screened Monday – Friday before 5:00pm.

Again this year we have our discounted sampler card.  The Ticket Sampler is available for purchase from any RiverRun box office and costs $108 ($120 value).  The sampler card allows patrons to choose what films and events they want to attend.  You can either use them to see one $12 film screening, go to the RiverRun Gala for $20, go to a $6 matinee or just bring a bunch of your friends with you and use the whole card.  The card will be punched by a RiverRun volunteer or box office staff member for whatever amount you choose to spend.

Box office information

The box office for pre-festival sales–between March 4 and the opening of the festival on March 26–will be at the Stevens Center, located at 405 W. Fourth St. (hours listed below). From March 26 – April 5 (during the festival), tickets for all films and events may be purchased at the main Festival box offices as well as at the Stevens Center.  We recommend you buy tickets in advance as many screenings will sell out.  However, you may still purchase day-of tickets, if there are any available.  If there is more than one hour before the start time of a screening you can purchase your tickets at either of the main festival box offices but if there is less than one hour before the start time of the screening you must purchase tickets directly at the venue where the screening is taking place. 

**Note** All tickets for RED Cinemas screenings must be purchased at the RED Cinemas box office or online.
