Sneak Previews FAQ


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.

Send your bestie in your place
Out of town? Share the love … no hard ticket needed. Email 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.

The element of surprise is a turn off
Even the most dedicated movie lovers can get a button pushed … email 24 hours prior to show time if you don’t want to be surprised.

Pro-rated subscriptions
We like to think your universe revolves around the Talk Cinema schedule, but … we’re flexible. Pro-rated subscriptions are available on line or call us at Talk Cinema 914-737-7654.

Subscription refunds
Life happens.  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.

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.

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  if you are concerned about the content of a film before dragooning a teenager to get some culture.

Talk Cinema audiences experience the fun of cinema immersion attending international film festivals hosted by Harlan and Susan Jacobson.  Our 2020 destinations include: Cannes, Munich, San Sebastian, Vancouver and Thessaloniki.  Each tour offers our signature mix of film-going, sight-seeing, and enjoying local cuisine and culture. For more information email or give us a ring at  914-737-7654.
