Friends of the Film Festival and State and Bijou Memberships are separate, unrelated programs. Friends benefit during the festival period and can order festival tickets before the general public. State and Bijou members benefit the year-round theaters and receive benefits at the State Theatre and Bijou by the Bay outside of the festival period. State and Bijou members receive a plastic membership card, Friends do not. Visit the State & Bijou website for more details.
FRIENDS TICKETING DAY PHONE ORDERING We love being with all of you who line up at the Front Street box office to get your tickets early on Friends ticketing day. And many of you prefer to order tickets online later that day. But due to our limited resources, phones have never been a good option for getting tickets. So once again this year, the phone lines will not be open on the first day of Friends ticketing. (Please Note: phones will be open every day after that.)
We are, however, providing an option for those of you who cannot use any other means to order tickets, including online ordering. From those who submit applications for the order assistance program, we will be able to select a large group of Friends to accommodate, details will be sent out at the end of June. If you have any questions about this program, email us at email@example.com.
