What is the True/False Film Festival?

What films are showing?

How do I attend the screenings?

  • Although all the passes to attend screenings have been sold out, there is still a way to attend. An hour before the film starts, go to the venue and look for the venue Queen – the most flamboyant person in the area. The Queen will hand over a Q number and the house manager will release all available seats five minutes prior to the start of the film.

    These tickets cost $10 for nonpassholders ($6 for students for films at the Missouri Theatre, The Blue Note and Jesse Hall); passholders get Q tickets for free.
