After an exciting opening weekend, AFI FEST presented by Audi continues in full force. Need extra incentive on a Monday morning? In celebration of our 25th anniversary, we’re giving away 25 FREE Cinepasses to all regular screenings to the first 25 people in line when the box office opens at 10:00 a.m.!
And remember, each festival goer has an allotment of eight tickets, so if you’ve used a few, refill with new films or ones you missed — many films are screening a second time this week.
