Festival Passes

The Festival Pass is a great way for a film lover to enjoy as much of the Plaza Classic as possible. The Pass sells for $200 and includes admission to ALL Plaza Classic Film Festival events, an express lane for pass holders, discounts at Anson 11, Starbucks and TCBY Yogurt/Mrs. Fields and invitations to special events. This year’s 14th annual Plaza Classic will be July 29-August 8.

Plaza Classic Film Club

For some, cinema appreciation begins early and one of the goals of the Plaza Classic Film Festival is to cultivate a new generation of classic film viewers. The Plaza Classic Film Festival once again offers a club to bring together teens looking to see and discuss some great films. Film Club passes are open to high school students ages 14 to 18 (limit 25). Club members will have the same benefits as regular pas holders. Plaza Classic Film Club Passes are available for $100.


We try to keep our prices low, noticeably lower than a first-run movie theater, so anyone from any income level can attend. Matinees in the Plaza Theatre and Abraham Chavez Theatre are $6. Evening shows in the Plaza and Chavez are $8, with $10 for special guest appearances. A limited number of seats are available for $20 for the opening night VIP/Sponsor showing on the first Thursday of the Festival.

The Mills Plaza Drive-In/Walk-Up movies are $5 at the door. Friday-Saturday outdoor movies are free.

In early July, tickets may be purchased in advance at the Plaza Theatre box office, Ticketmaster outlets and Ticketmaster.com.
