It is recommended that you purchase tickets in advance to secure better seating for reserved seating events. Advance purchase of tickets will also insure that you will not have to wait in line at the box office and potentially miss the start of the event you are attending.
There are minimal convenience fees added to the purchase of tickets when tickets are purchased online or over the phone. Tickets purchased in person at the Egyptian Theatre box office do not incur any fees. Tickets purchased online or over the phone also have delivery options which may incur additional fees.
All sales are final. No requests for cancellations or refunds are accepted. In the event that a performance is either cancelled or postponed, the Egyptian Theatre will make every effort to contact every patron via e-mail, time permitting. If a performance is playing multiple nights and tickets are still available we can exchange tickets after they have been purchased for a different night. Ticket exchanges are $5.00 per order.
Refunds on tickets purchased are made for a cancelled or postponed event only.
