There are no refunds for tickets purchased to Fine Arts Building events or through the Fine Arts Building Box Office. Instead, tickets may be exchanged into the same event occurring at a different date and time. However, in the instance of event cancellation or event reschedule, ticket buyers will receive official notification and procedures from our Box Office regarding these types of specific refund scenarios.

In the event of a reschedule, ticket buyers have 5 days to reply to Fine Arts Building official communications indicating they would prefer to receive a refund rather than be rescheduled. After this window of time refunds for rescheduled events will no longer be offered

Not all ticket exchanges can be accommodated as they are subject to availability. If we are able to accommodate a ticket exchange, an exchange fee and/or upgrade charge and any relevant taxes will apply. Available ticket prices and fee structures apply at the time of sale. Guests may exchange their tickets up to 24 hours before the original ticketed event. Missed events do not qualify for exchange. Exchanges are at the discretion of the Box Office and subject to availability.

Do I need to print my tickets?

You may print the PDF tickets that were emailed to you at home or display the barcode on your smartphone. Our ushers are happy to scan your tickets either way.

To expedite the entry process, all guests are encouraged to charge their phones and have the brightness levels on high for easy scanning

I never received my e-tickets:

Don’t worry, our box office is happy to print tickets on-demand for guests who may have lost their tickets or have never received their e-ticket email.
