Buying Tickets or Using 6-Pack Punch Card? Please read about our queue system and how it works. 

  • In an effort to reduce your time in line we use a queue system
  • Queues are a numbered card system that holds your place in line to purchase tickets and reduce your wait time
  • They do NOT guarantee entrance, just the order of the chance to purchase a ticket
  • Queues are given to EVERYONE in TICKET BUYERS LINE (Ticket Buyers and 6-Punch Card Holders) 
  • Queues will be given out starting ONE HOUR PRIOR to showtime at venue of film showing (each person can receive a maximum of 2 queues)
  • Please be back in line 20 MINUTES BEFORE showtime and organize yourselves by numbered order
  • At 15 minutes before showtime, we will start selling tickets and letting people in
  • Please RETURN QUEUE at the door to gain entry (we need to reuse these many times)
  • If it looks like the show will sell out - volunteers will help direct you to another film/theatre where there is a better chance you’ll get in

How do I purchase a pass or tickets during the festival? Can I do this online?

  • During the fest, online purchasing will not be available and 4-Day Festival Passes need to be purchased in person at our Box Office at the Crested Butte Mountain Theatre. 


  • You may, however, purchase a 6-Pack Punch Card at the Box Office or at either of our screening venues (Center for the Arts, Majestic Theatre).


  • Individual tickets can not be purchased in advance, they are only available at the door of the film screening you wish to attend.

I have already purchased passes or a 6-Pack - how do I pick these up?

  • If you have already purchased a 4-Day Festival Pass or a 6-Pack Punch Card, please pick up at the Box Office during the festival anytime the Box Office is open. They'll be found under your last name. Hours and location can be found above.
