Where can I purchase an IFC Center membership?

There is nowhere on the ticket purchase page to enter in my 4-digit member number – help!

The four-digit code on the back of an older IFC Center membership card no longer works with our current ticketing system. You can reach out to ifccmember@ifccenter.com to request your current member number – you will need to create a new user profile online, using your new member number, to access your member benefits with the current system. Your member benefits will be tied to your user profile, so you will not need to enter a member number every time you purchase tickets.

I am renewing my IFC Center membership. Will I be getting a new card, or do I keep my old one?

You’ll receive a new IFC Center membership card when you renew if you have an IFC Center card with an old 4-digit code; if you have a newer member card, your card and member number will be valid as long as your membership is active. Please recycle your old card (with the 4-digit code at the bottom of the card) once your new card is received.

Are member discounts available for online merchandise?

Yes! Members enjoy 20% off merchandise – check out our current selection of online merchandise here.

How many member-priced tickets am I allowed to buy per screening?

This all depends on the level of membership you have purchased. Student, Senior, Cineaste and Auteur members are allowed one discounted, member-priced ticket per screening. Cineaste Plus One and Auteur Plus One members can purchase up to two member-priced tickets per screening. Mogul members receive complimentary tickets for themselves and a guest to screenings.

I’m a member, but I don’t see the member ticket option on the purchase page.

To access your member benefits, please log in to your account by clicking here. The system will automatically offer you member-priced tickets. Not seeing member tickets after logging in, or active member benefits on your profile? Please reach out to ifccmember@ifccenter.com for assistance.
