Fandango Tricks & Tips:

If there is no program on the day you are looking at fandango, look below "no shows today" to "coming attractions" and you can buy advance tickets, or feel free to come to the box office in person during box office hours. All advertised shows are open to the public. The Egyptian's zip code is 90028 if you choose to find the theatre by zip code on The only way to buy tickets online is by using Fandango. Fandango service fees will apply.

You can also choose the Egyptian and Aero as your favorite theatre when you create a personal "log-in" on Fandango. It will appear on your home page and you log in and you can use the links to go directly to either theatre.

Each show you buy is a separate transaction for security reasons. You will have a separate confirmation code and "print at home bar-coded ticket" for each individual movie you buy using fandango.

If you are a member you may still use our member ticket sales by phone.

All advertised shows are open to the public.

Some of these shows will sell out, so get your tickets in advance. Tickets are available up to 30 days in advance at the box office if you come in person during box office hours. You can also mail or fax in an order. Your mail order must be received five full business days in advance of the date of the first show on your order. Fax orders must be recieved a full two days before the first show on your order. Tip: The majority of customers buy their tickets at the door the night of the screening they want to see, so there are usually long lines 20 minutes before a screening is about to start. To avoid waiting in long lines, when you come to the box office to purchase advance tickets (for a program in the future), avoid peak hours such as the hour before a show starts. On nights where there is more than one show, come once the first movie has gone in and you'll walk right up, or stop by during the afternoon. Cinematheque members have the privilege of purchasing tickets in advance.
