THE 10-MINUTE RULE
Seats for advance ticket and pass holders are held until 10 minutes before showtime, when any unfilled seats are released to the public. Thus, advance tickets or passes ensure that you will not have to wait in the ticket purchase line but do not guarantee a seat in the case of arrival after the 10-minute window has begun. Your early arrival also helps get screenings started promptly. We appreciate your understanding. Advance ticket holders who arrive within the 10-minute window but are not seated may exchange their tickets for another screening at the Ticket Outlet or obtain a cash refund at the theater. There are no refunds or exchanges for late arrivals or for missed screenings.

After starting out as a Cahiers du Cinéma critic, Carax, with his first feature at age 23, was immediately proclaimed the “bad boy” and “boy genius” of French cinema. Though he has only made five films in 30 years, each has made its own striking impact on critics, audiences, and filmmakers alike, each film’s release amounting to a riveting cinematic event. Infused with a distinctive romantic fatalism, his characters, like the travails that have limited his filmmaking output, encounter worlds full of alienation, chaos, and tragic love. Indicative of his eccentric passion, Carax, born Alex Christophe Dupont, adopted “Leos Carax” as his nom-de-cinéma—an anagram of Alex, his first name, and Oscar, as in Academy Award. It has also been suggested that “Leos Carax” can be read as “Le Oscar à X,” French for “The Oscar goes to X.” “Carax is a great self-fabulist, something like a mixture of Tarantino and Godard of the ’60s, thoroughly caught up in the melodrama of being a Great Moviemaker.... His best work is burning with a feeling for tragedy and apocalypse.”—David Thompson, THE NEW BIOGRAPHICAL DICTIONARY OF FILM.
