I just bought a Rooftop Membership. What do I need to bring to get into a show for free?
All you need to bring to get into a regularly priced Summer Series show for free is a valid photo I.D. However, if you would like to guarantee entry to a specific show, you must resrve tickets by 5pm on the day of the show.

What does "Guaranteed priority entry with RSVP" mean?
Members are guaranteed free entry to any regularly priced Summer Series show provided they reserve tickets by 5pm on the day of the show. For Double and Sustainer Members, you must specify the number of guests in your reserve tickets to guarantee their free entry.

If you do not reserve tickets by 5pm on the day of the show, you can still show up to the screening - and if the show is not sold out, you will be granted free entry. However you will not be admitted if the show is sold out.

Members receive priority entry when doors open (usually 8:00pm).

What if a show is sold out? Can I still get in as a member?
