Cancellations and Refunds

If an event is cancelled, refunds will be made by the Lensic Box Office up to six months from the date of the cancellation. Credit cards used for the original ticket purchase will be issued a credit; tickets purchased with cash or check will be refunded in person by the Box Office.

We realize that many of our events sell out quickly and that not all who wish to attend are able to get tickets. We hope that the above explanation is helpful in understanding how tickets are distributed.

Thank you for all your enthusiasm and for being such a great audience!
