How do I get tickets for the 10pm showing of Doctor Who episodes?
Get your tickets at any ticket booth. Tickets are free and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Once you have a ticket, you must be in the theater by 10 pm to claim your seat. If all tickets have been given out, visitors can wait in the stand-by line.  At 10 pm, we will let people waiting in the stand-by line into the theater, to fill all empty seats.
