Please keep in mind that advance tickets to many Festival screenings sell out, leaving a limited number of tickets available at the door. Advance tickets and passes ensure that you get to see the films you want without waiting in theater ticket lines. Please note that advance tickets and passes only guarantee admission until 10 minutes before showtime.


Silver Screen Club passes and advance tickets for all programs are on sale daily, noon-6 p.m., February 3–28 at the Festival Ticket Outlet, located in the lobby of the Portland Art Museum’s Mark Building, 1119 SW Park Avenue at Main. On the day of the screening, tickets (if still available) can be purchased at the advance ticket outlet until three hours prior to showtime, and then at the specific theater’s box office beginning 30 minutes prior to showtime.


Beginning February 3, tickets and passes may be purchased online at, or by calling 503-276-4310 from noon-6 p.m. daily. Online and phone orders have a $1 per ticket service fee.


TICKETS: $25 general; $20 Silver Screen Friend and Portland Art Museum members.
Opening Night tickets are available at the Festival Ticket Outlet or at the PCPA box office, 1111 SW Broadway, 10 a.m.–5 p.m. Monday–Saturday. Tickets are also available at all TicketMaster outlets, by phone at 800-745-3000, or online at (subject to additional service charges).


Seats for advance tickets and all pass holders are held until 10 minutes before showtime, when any unfilled seats are released to the public. Thus, advance tickets or passes ensure that you will not have to wait in the ticket purchase line, but do not guarantee a seat in the case of arrival after the 10-minute window has begun. Your early arrival also helps to ensure that screenings are started promptly. We appreciate your understanding. Advance ticket holders who arrive within the 10-minute window but are not seated may exchange their tickets for another screening at the Festival Advance Ticket Outlet, or obtain a cash refund at the theater. There are no refunds or exchanges for late arrivals or for missed screenings.


Each screening is a separate admission. Theaters will be cleared between screenings. Advance ticket holders for a film immediately following the one they are attending will be guaranteed admission to the second film, but they may not save a particular seat. You must take your belongings with you. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.


All orders are final. There are no refunds or exchanges except as noted. If a screening is canceled, tickets must be returned to the Festival Ticket Outlet within a week of the canceled screening date for a refund or exchange. Processing fees are non-refundable.
