KFC Members £60 £6.50

Please note: We want to make sure that everyone gets to see the films they want to see. However buying a Festival Pass does not guarantee entry into a screening.

If there is a film you particularly want to see, you must reserve a seat to guarantee entry. Details on how to do this can be found below.

Individual Tickets

For individual tickets please go to the Alhambra Cinema website to book for any screenings at the Alhambra or Theatre by the Lake.

Sales of individual tickets for screenings at Rheged will only be available via Cinema - Rheged.

Links to directly book individual tickets on the relevent website can be found below.

Festival Passes

We've had to find a new solution for Festival Passes this year, which will be sold now on the Keswick Alhambra Cinema website.

There are three passes available on the Gift Card page:

  • Standard £70
  • Keswick Film Club Members £60
  • Students/Under 16s £35

Once you buy a pass, you will receive an email entitled "Keswick Alhambra Cinema: Gift Cards and Film Festival Passes" which will contain your Festival Pass GIFT CARD NUMBER.

Bring your email to the Festival Desk at the Alhambra Cinema and we will exchange it for a lanyard (there’s no need to print it, you can simply show it to us on your phone).

Your pass entitles you to a seat at any film in the Festival subject to availability. You can just turn up and if there's a seat free it's yours.

Your pass does not guarantee access to all films, and some of the smaller screens may fill up, but it also enables you to reserve a seat in advance, again subject to availability, for up to 12 films of your choice at the Film Festival.

So if there's a film you definitely don't want to miss, then it would be wise to reserve a seat for it in advance. On the day of the film, any unreserved seats will be released 15 minutes before each film for passholders who are waiting at the door.

Reserving Seats For Passholders

To reserve seats for specific films go to My KFF Film Choices, enter your full name, your email address and your Festival Pass Gift Card Number (which you'll find in the email you will have received when you bought your Festival Pass). Click on the boxes next to the films you want to see and submit the form. We'll reserve seats for your chosen films for you (subject to availability).

If you wish to reserve a seat for more than 12 films, you will then need to buy a single ticket to guarantee entry (again, subject to availability).

You can of course just turn up on the day and if there's a seat available it's free to Festival Pass holders (on a first come, first served basis) by showing your lanyard.
