The AFI Silver box office opens approximately 30 minutes before the first scheduled screening each day. Tickets to screenings may be purchased in person or (recommended) online in advance of showtime.
- We recommend purchasing tickets online in advance of showtime. Click here for a list of available films. There are several places on this website to click in order to get to the purchase point, including the VIEW BY DATE and VIEW BY TITLE buttons located above the daily calendar window (which appears on every page of the website); or by clicking on any individual film title within that calendar. Once you are on the page of the film for which you wish to purchase tickets, scroll down to see available dates and showtimes, then CLICK on your desired showtime to select it. You will then be guided through the secure online purchase process.
- After purchasing online, you will receive an email confirmation with your ticket that includes a QR code and your reserved seat(s). Be sure to check your spam folder if you don't see the email in your inbox. Bring your ticket displayed on your cell phone or print your ticket to be scanned when you arrive at AFI Silver for your screening.
- If you cannot present proof of your online ticket purchase via your email confirmation QR code or a print-at-home ticket, you may retrieve your online purchased ticket at the box office with the same credit card used to purchase the ticket.
- Currently, all tickets are reserved seating only. Please consult the seat maps on display outside each theater to help identify your seat location before entering the assigned theater.
