I'm ordering online, and I can't choose my seats. Why?
Seating at Flushing Town Hall is general admission, meaning seating is “first come, first served” or that you may sit in any open seat once you arrive at the theater. Arrive early if you're looking for seating near the stage or want to save seats for fellow ticket holders!
What are my options for accessible seating?
All of the Flushing Town Hall’s event spaces have sections designated as accessible seating. Please call the box office at (718) 463-7700 x222 prior to the event to inform us about accessible seating needs.
Please also tell us if a paid companion seat is needed.
I'm planning on bringing my child to a performance — what should I do to prepare?
Please note: All patrons must have a ticket to attend an event/workshop. Not all events are suitable for children. Flushing Town Hall staff is more than happy to accommodate for any strollers, carriers, or bags you may need to bring on the day of the performance - just ask! We can stow them for you and your child until the end of the performance. Please contact our box office for further information and any questions you may have regarding preparation for the day of a show.
Are there any discounts or group rates?
If you are purchasing 10 or more tickets to events (this is not available for workshops or certain events), you may contact our box office during regular hours to request further information on which events our discounts may be applied to. Please note: discounts are not retroactive and cannot be combined. There is limited seating available for select discounts.
What is your latecomer seating policy?
To avoid disturbing both the event, performers, and other theater patrons, latecomers will be seated at the discretion of theater management. We encourage all patrons to arrive to the venue at least thirty minutes prior to the start of the event to accommodate for traffic, parking, and/or weather. If you have any questions about the late seating policy for a specific show, please feel free to call our box office before the day of that performance.
What is the inclement weather policy at Flushing Town Hall?
Most of Flushing Town Hall’s events are indoors. If we need to cancel or postpone an event, will we contact ticketholders. Please see our refund policy above.
