Review BMFI's policies and frequently asked questions for more information, or contact us with your questions.

  • Children Under 6

    Children under age six are not admitted to regular screenings. Children of all ages are welcome at our Saturday Matinees and Going Gaga matinees. Because Going Gaga features current feature films which are geared towards a mature audience, this program is recommended for parents with children younger than eighteen months.

  • Late Arrivals

    The theater reserves the right to stop selling tickets and seating patrons after a film has started.

  • Outside Food and Drink

    Patrons are not permitted to bring outside food and drink into the theater except for food and drink from Hothouse Coffee. No glass bottles are allowed in the theater for safety reasons.

  • Use of Membership Cards

    We've had some good questions about the use of Bryn Mawr Film Institute membership cards, so we thought we'd list some clarifications. If you have any questions or comments, please contact us immediately.

    Membership cards should be shown when buying tickets.
    Showing your membership card moves ticket sales quickly. If you don't have your card with you, box office staff will have to check your name on our membership list, which takes a minute. Thank you for your patience.

    Membership cards cannot be used by a nonmember.
    A membership card can be used only for the benefit of the named holder. The card cannot be loaned to a nonmember. A member cannot buy a discounted ticket for a nonmember friend, either.

    Couple/Dual Memberships
    In memberships that cover more than one person (Family, Senior Couple, Producer Family, Angel Family and up), only one person need show a card in order to obtain the discount for all persons covered by the membership.

    Children of Member
    Minor children (18 years or younger) of Family and Producer Family members are admitted at the member price.

    Advance Ticket Sales to Members
    Bryn Mawr Film Institute members can purchase tickets at the box office to special screenings and regular features as soon as the schedules are announced. Sorry, we don't sell tickets by phone. If some of your advance tickets are for nonmembers, you must pay the general admission price for those tickets. Members at the Mogul level and above may reserve their free seats for main attraction films by telephone.

  • Refunds

    We regret that we cannot replace lost or stolen tickets.

    Refunds for tickets to current main attraction films
    If you purchased your ticket for a current main attraction film at the box office and then find that you cannot attend the screening, you can receive a refund if the unused ticket is brought to the box office before the show time.

    Refunds for tickets to all other special event programming
    There are generally no refunds on tickets for special event programming. However, if there is already an encore presentation of the event currently scheduled, you may exchange your ticket at the box office for a ticket for the encore presentation of that same event only, if the event is not sold-out, so long as you make the exchange in person and before the date and time of the original event you cannot attend.

  • Free Pass/Free Admission

    Exchange your free pass for a ticket at the box office. Mogul, Angel, Director, Film Maker, and Cineaste members should show their card at the box office to receive a free ticket.
