ANSWERS TO FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Subscriptions Matter – Support Your Cinema Series!
A season subscription is essential to ensure the viability of Talk Cinema in your community. Please support the series you love by subscribing.   If you can’t make a screening, we encourage you to send someone in your place.  Share the love … no hard ticket needed. Email susan@talkcinema.com and we’ll take care of getting your friend checked in as you. 

General admission tickets
As space permits, which it mostly does, general admission tickets may be purchased from our event coordinator the day of the screening with check or cash.

The element of surprise is a turn off
Even the most dedicated movie lovers can get a button pushed … email susan@talkcinema.com 24 hours prior to show time if you want to know what is screening. 

Pro-rated subscriptions
Pro-rated subscriptions are available once the season has begun or if you know in advance you have a date conflict. Call us at Talk Cinema 914-737-7654 to arrange.

Subscription refunds
In the event of a personal emergency that prohibits you from using or sharing the balance of your season subscription, contact us.  We’ll find a solution.  susan@talkcinema.com

Postponements
Should Beloved Mother Nature send us something incredibly inclement, or there’s a film print failure, or any other massive disruption out of our control occurs, Talk Cinema will reschedule the screening for a future date.  For season subscribers, in the event you cannot attend the rescheduled date, we’ll send you a guest pass allowing you to bring a friend to a future screening.

Security
From time to time (rarely),  a film distributor will have security personnel on hand to protect against piracy; security procedures commonly include night-vision technology and bag searches to assure no recording devices are brought into the auditorium.  We know you aren’t there to steal anything – but if and when security personnel are brought in, please know we have done everything in our power to assure the film company we are old hippies come to see a movie – sometimes we lose this fight.

Got children?
Please email susan@talkcinema.com for the title if you are concerned about the content of a film before dragooning a teenager to get some culture.
