Individual tickets can also be purchased online through this website (by clicking the “Buy Tickets” button next to each film).

A limited number of tickets are available at the Peabody Essex Museum for films screened at PEM. Tickets for these screenings are also available at CinemaSalem and online.

Please be seated in the auditorium when the show is scheduled to start. In the event of a sell-out, empty seats will be sold to  waitlisted patrons.

For same-day tickets for screenings at PEM, tickets may be purchased in person at the museum; online ticket sales for PEM films will end at midnight prior to the day of their screening.  For films screening at PEM that begin after 5 pm, the ticketing office will open a half hour before the film starts with remaining tickets available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Festival passes provide significant savings to film lovers who plan to attend many films, and can be purchased at the CinemaSalem box office and online. Festival passes are available in three configurations:

a) 2016 Friend of the Festival – All Access Passes provide admission to all festival screenings and events and include a donation to the festival that helps continue the success of the festival. Purchasers of this pass also receive a free 2016 Salem Film Fest T-shirt and an exclusive invitation to a Filmmaker Reception from 3:30-5:00 pm on Friday, March 4, at The House of the Seven Gables in Salem.

NOTE: All Access Pass holders with ticket stubs also will enjoy the first opportunity (for a few moments) to take their seats before the rest of the audience is allowed into the auditorium at each screening.

The potential value of this pass is more than $400; the actual cost is $175 for adults and $165 for seniors and students.

An important note about sellouts: Each year, many film screenings sell out at Salem Film Fest. To ensure seating, festival pass holders must stop by the CinemaSalem box office to pick up ticket stubs for each screening they wish to attend. This transaction can take place in advance.

Please be seated in the auditorium when the show is scheduled to start. In the event of a sell-out, empty seats will be sold to  waitlisted patrons.
Tickets to films at PEM are NOT available for sale at PEM after 4:30.  Tickets at the door for any film at PEM that starts after 4:30 MUST be  bought online or at CinemaSalem.

Group discounts are available to Salem Film Fest! If your school, group, or organization has a special interest in a particular film, there’s no need to pay full price. A discounted admission charge of $7 per person is available for individual festival screenings for groups of 25 or more. This group rate must be purchased in advance.

The same admission discount is available for a group of 60 or more which desires to set up a special private screening (typically during the daytime hours) of one of the festival films. In the past, high school and college groups have taken advantage of this opportunity.
