Effective January 1st, 2020, a 3% fee for using a debit or credit card will apply to movie ticket purchases, so we strongly encourage cash or check payments. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, credit card processing fees severely cut into our budget every year, so we have found it necessary to implement this policy. Thank you for your understanding.
