On this Day in Movie History, September 16, 2012: Tickets Are On Sale Online for the Jaxon Film Fest

Tickets are now available online. Here is the link. http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/263223

Purchased online tickets are $8.00 (plus processing charge) /$10.00 at door per each block of films (approximately an hour and a half each). $55.00 for the day. This includes all festival activities happening on Saturday.

Questions Regarding Tickets
What does $55 buy? What the $55 buys is an all day VIP pass to both the Michigan Theatre and the Carnegie Branch Library, this will enable you to come and go as you wish without paying for re-entry; it provides you with free access to the after festival party; it provides you access to the attending filmmakers backstage at the Michigan Theatre; we kick in a VIP bag with all of its goodies; all of this for TWO. Most importantly it demonstrates your support for the Jaxon Film Fest, something which will be announced during the day, during one of the film block intermissions.

Can your $10 can buy you more than one one-and a half hour film block? Really? Being as this is our first festival, if you purchase a ticket for a single film block and wish to stay for a second, we will not embarrass you by turning the spotlight on you and attending party and reminding you “Har-rumph!You have to leave now.” We can only hope that you may want to stay to watch our films. But keep in mind, the $10 only buys entrance once. You will not be permitted to come and return after you leave. Also, keep in mind, the Theatre does not permit smoking. If you step outside to grab a smoke, you will not be permitted to re-enter unless you purchase another ticket–unless, of course you buy a VIP pass.

How then do you purchase tickets online for more than one film-block? If your intention is to stay for more than one film block, you may stay to see a second out of curiosity, buy tickets for the first of the film blocks you may wish to see.

The Michigan Theatre has reserved rights to all concession sales. They wish to discourage you from bringing in food-stuffs from outside. We will not subject you to TSA style pat-downs. We will trust you. We ask that you comply with Theatre rules.
