  1. I would like to get tickets ahead of time for the 6PM members only showing of Violent Universe on 02/16. I have tried doing so in person with Patrick and was told they are not available yet as of 02/05 and by phone with Brittany I was told I have to get them online, but I cannot see how I can get tickets online with my membership card. Is there a way to do that? How soon before the show do you have tickets available?

    Thanks so much!!!

  2. Since this is a ‘member only’ event, you need to RSVP to our membership coordinator, Carl Malaret ( to secure tickets to any showing during this event on the 16th.
