Sense of Place F.A.Q.

Sense of Place has been running for 14 years now! In that time we’ve learned a few things about how to make the evening as enjoyable as possible. Take a look at the Q & A section below for more information.

Will there be a Season Pass?

No, there will not be season pass this year. However, if you want tickets to all of this seasons lectures, we encourage you to become a Season 14 Sponsor. Sponsorship includes drink tickets, early access to other events, and more.

When will tickets go on sale?

All Lecture tickets will be available starting in September on our website.

How can I find out if seats are still available?

Follow our NEW Sense of Place instagram account for up-to-date information about seating and ticket sales.

What if tickets sell out before the lecture?

If online tickets for a lecture sell out before the date, you can join our waitlist in person starting at 6 pm (or when doors open) on the lecture day.

What happens if I bought a ticket and get to the theater after 6:50?

Any seats not filled by 650 will be opened to our waitlist. However, if you have purchased a ticket and arrive after 650 you will be added to the waitlist, and you won’t have to purchase an additional ticket.

What if the Lecture sells out online? Can I still get a ticket on Lecture day?

If a Lecture sells out online and you would like to attend, please come to the venue on Lecture day and sign up on the waitlist when doors open at 6pm. There are ALWAYS ticket holders who do not show up and we have been very successful in getting everyone seated from the waitlist (This applies to sponsors as well).

If I sign up on the waitlist, do I have to wait there until 6:50 to get a seat?

If you are on the waitlist, you can leave, however, please return by 650 if you would still like to be considered for a seat.

What time does the venue open?

Doors will open at 6 pm. 

    When should I be in my seat?

    Please plan to be seated by 6:50.

    If I get there late can I still get a seat?

    We will admit people until 7:10 if seats are available. However, you may have to join the waitlist.

    What time does the Bar open?

    The Bar opens at 6 pm when the doors open.

    When is Last Call?

    Last call will be at 645.

    What payment methods can I use at the Bar?

    Most of the time, the bar accepts cash and cards. However, there may be exceptions. We ask that you have patience with us if there is a line, or if we are  having technical difficulties.
