At Cinemateket it is important that you show up on time: ten minutes after the screening starts we start to fill empty seats with people who didn’t get a ticket, and are standing in the rush line.

That means if you have a ticket, you still lose your seat after ten minutes if the screening is full.

It also means that if you arrive to a sold-out show, you can get a number and wait in a rush line until we fill up empty seats.
