Ticketing for all non-Palace Electric events (All the Time in the World @ Civic Square, Sonic Sea at The Courtside, and EFFA on Wheels) are available through Eventbrite.

Further information about Eventbrite ticketing is available via the Eventbrite support portal.


A valid ticket must be presented for entry to each session.

Tickets can be presented on smartphones, tablet devices or printed tickets for scanning. Each barcoded ticket is valid for single entry into the selected films.


Full-time students, pensioners, seniors, unwaged and holders of health care concession or carers cards holders are eligible to purchase concession tickets. EFFA or venue staff reserve the right to check for proof of concession entitlement prior to entry.


Under the Classification Board’s rules, EFFA has self-determined the classification for all films. Unless indicated otherwise, all films are suitable for general audiences.


For sold-out sessions, EFFA will operate a stand-by queue. If seats become available after the session commences entry will be granted where possible. 

Please see the EFFA reception desk up to one hour before sold-out sessions to be placed in the stand-by queue.
