Premiere Membership Perks

+ Unlimited Movie Access

Patio programs a full monthly calendar of popular, independent and local movies including feature films, documentaries, cartoons, silent films and others. The theater was built on the legacy of Hollywood and the movies it’s showed to countless generations over the decades.

Premiere Members are given free unlimited access to all Patio Theater sponsored movies which typically show on the big screen each week on Wednesday & Sunday. Member access is given to special third-party movie showings at the theater on a case by case basis.  Special member only movie premiers and other special member only access announced monthly.

+ Free & Discounted Concert Tickets

Patio programs a diverse monthly calendar of concerts, comedy and other events. These are ticketed events sponsored by both Patio Theater and third-party promoters. Members are required to buy tickets to attend these events, however, many times when an event does not sell out extra tickets are available which can be distributed either for a discount or totally free to members. Patio Theater currently hosts some of the best concerts and comedy events featuring local & internationally recognized talent.

Premiere Members are given priority access to free and discounted tickets before Groupon or anyone else. Members will be notified via email and will have the opportunity to claim free and discounted tickets before the general public.

+ Members Only Special Events & Concerts

One of the most exciting things about a membership is the ability to attend special members only events which will be programmed monthly. Everything from movie premieres and experiences, to celebrity meet and greets, to member only concerts featuring world recognized talent – our members are given exclusive access to take part these once in a lifetime experiences.

Premiere Members are given exclusive access to attend member only special Patio Theater events which the general public will not have access to. On occasion members will also be able to bring a guest to these events.

+ Skip-The-Line Venue Access

One of the best features of our membership program is the ability to skip the general public venue access line for concerts and events. Think about having TSA pre-check at the airport when there are 1,000 people in line, only this is better! Have tickets to a sold-out show where the line to get in is around the block? Whip around the line and walk right into the venue as a Premier Member! Members of Patio Theater will have their own venue access line allowing members to get into the venue and get the best spots before the general public.

Premiere Members are given their own line at all patio theater events. Being a member will allow you to enter the venue quicker and head to your spot before the general public.

+ Pre-Sale Access To Tickets

Members will always receive first notice about movies, concerts and other event ticketing information before anyone else. Priority pre-sale access to tickets is one of the most beneficial perks of being a Patio Theater member.

Premiere Members are given priority access to buy both VIP and General Admission tickets before the general public. When tickets to our concerts and events go live, our members will be the first to be notified.

+ Membership Cards

All members will receive digital membership cards. The cards are available for access anytime through our membership app. The cards can be displayed on your phone or downloaded and printed for presentation and venue entry.

Premiere Members are given access to their membership cards on the Patio Theater membership application as well as notifications on their phones about Patio Theater events. Membership cards should be presented for entry and events and use for other venue perks as well.

+ Collectable Patio Theater Membership Certificate

Your membership is something very special. To show our appreciation, we will present every new member with a one-of-a-kind collectable Patio Theater Premiere Membership certificate with your name proudly displayed. We appreciate your love and support, and your Patio Theater Premiere Membership certificate is a daily reminder of the countless memories your membership is providing for so many today and for future generations.

Premiere Members are given a one-of-a-kind Patio Theater Premiere Membership certificate with the member’s name and date displayed. Members can proudly display their support of the historic theater at their home or office. This membership certificate should not be used for venue entry and is just a token of our gratitude.

+ Access To Patio Theater Insider Monthly Email

Every month, our owner and staff will gather the latest intel on movies, concerts, events and members only special events taking place at our venue as well as real time updates on things going on with the Patio Theater redevelopment. With the Patio Theater Insider, you will be up to date with all the happenings of this incredible venue.

Premiere Members are given access to our monthly insider email written by our owner and staff about upcoming movies, concerts, comedy & member only events.

Your Support

With your monthly membership dues, not only do you get to enjoy the perks of movies, concerts & special events - but you play an essential role in the future of the venue by joining the incredible community that supports the restoration and maintenance of this iconic theater.

On behalf of everybody working to make Patio Theater into a great memorable experience for today’s generation, thank you.
