Passes are available for purchase online at viff.org, by phone, or in person at the Vancity Theatre.
A generous allotment of seats is reserved for passholders at every screening. While a pass (with the exception of the two "Platinum" options) does not guarantee seating, passes offer flexibility, freedom to move between screenings, and potentially the greatest savings of all. Passholders are allowed entry until the passholder seat-allotment is reached. All passes are strictly nontransferable and photo ID may be required. Pass purchasers should see viff.org/passholder.htm for detailed information on how to benefit from passes.
