Houston Cinema Arts Society is excited to have your as guest at our 10th Houston Cinema Arts Festival this November 8 – 12, 2018.  Your All Access Pass will allow you entrance to any screening during the Festival.  Here’s a few things you should know:

Pass Holders will be admitted for priority seating 30 minutes prior to published screening time. Priority seating ends 15 minutes prior to screening time.  All unoccupied seats will be released 10 minutes prior to screening time to the general public and vouchers at this time will be redeemed on a first-come, first-served basis.  HCAS cannot guarantee a seat for late arrivals. There will be no seating after the screening has begun. Final seating is at the discretion of House Management.

You’ll see a line for Pass Holders when you arrive.  In that line, you’ll show your pass to receive a physical ticket to the film, which you’ll hand to the usher at the door.


Due to limited seating, sessions for 360 Cinema have 10 seats reserved during each session for All-Access Pass Holders.  Please arrive 30 minutes prior to published session times to secure your place.  If a session is sold out – you may reserve for a subsequent session at the Sawyer Yards Box Office on site.

We are grateful for your patronage.  Please let me know if you have any questions.
