Okay! I’m going to ask two questions that’ve probably been asked 100 times before. I did a search but couldn’t find any definitive answers so I’ll ask them here with the FULL understanding that I’m a big idiot with horrendous personal hygiene who doesn’t deserve love of any sort or eyes so please save your flaming for when I say something SUPER stupid.
1. What’s the official cell phone policy at the New Bev?
Internally I hope it’s a place where cell phones don’t blaze to life at all but you never know. Is there a “100% NO!” Drafthousey vibe or are people allowed to light them up?
2. Since there’s no reserved seating (Thank-you, Beezus), how long before the start time should I show up to pick up tickets at Will Call and still get a good seat that isn’t on the front row aisle?
1. Phone use is strictly prohibited in the auditorium once the show has started – that includes the pre-show and trailers. While we always have someone monitoring the crowd, if you ever spot a rogue phone user, please alert staff.
2. For our nightly double features we generally open the box office & doors between 30 minutes and a full hour before showtime, depending on how busy it is. It’s always difficult to gauge when the line will start but generally it comes together about an hour before showtime.
