Current Member Policies/FAQs


Current Member Policies/FAQs:

Online Member Access
Your membership is active online immediately from time of purchase.  (Please note:  this does not apply to gift memberships, which need processing before they become active.)  If you used an existing log-in to purchase your membership online, that log-in should be automatically associated with your membership, so you can log in using that username and password to access your ticketing benefits.  If you do not already have a username and password set up, here are instructions on how to create a log-in that will be associated with your membership.  Once your log-in is successfully set up, you can access your member ticket benefits online by visiting any individual event page, clicking on the showtime you want to attend, and selecting “login to take advantage of member pricing.”  After entering in your username and password, your member ticket option should automatically appear. 

In addition to immediate online ticket access, you will also receive a membership acknowledgement letter (which serves as your tax documentation), your new membership card, and member guest passes (depending on your level of membership) in the mail within 7-10 days after purchase.  (If you do not receive your materials in the mail within this time, please let us know by emailing  You can use your member card to purchase member tickets at the Hollywood Theatre box office.  Please do be aware that many screenings/events do sell out, so we always recommend buying tickets in advance (either online or at the box office) to ensure that you get tickets to the events you want to attend.

Exceptions to Member Benefits
For the majority of regularly-priced screenings we offer, Student/Senior, Friend, and Director members receive discounted tickets, while Producer, Benefactor, and Visionary members receive complimentary tickets.  Occasionally there are special events for which we are unable to offer member benefits (due to studio demands, visiting artist expenses, or other unusual circumstances).  In the case of these special events, exceptions to the usual member benefits will be noted in the event description online or in member communications.

Member Guest Passes
Member guest passes are one-time-use passes which are mailed to Director and above members in their membership materials packet.  These passes may be used by the member or used to bring a friend (member need not be present for passes to be used).  Member guest passes can only be redeemed at the Hollywood Theatre box office.  For some special events, member guest passes may not be accepted; see the event description online or ask a box office staff member for details on particular events.  If you want to redeem your member guest passes for a popular event or one you fear may sell out, we recommend doing so at the box office in advance (rather than day-of) to ensure you get tickets.

Member Communications
Member e-newsletters are emailed at the beginning of every month, containing information about free member events, special member offers, upcoming festivals and screenings, etc.  Additional member emails, such as announcements about member pre-sale ticket access, are sent throughout the year as needed.

Please note that if you do not supply a valid email address to us upon purchasing your membership, or if you choose to unsubscribe from our email platform Emma, you are opting out of receiving these important member communications and any benefits offered therein.

For Producer, Benefactor, and Visionary members:
Turn In Your Member Comp Tickets If You Can’t Use Them
If you’re a Producer and above member who has claimed Member Comp tickets to an event which you are unable to attend, please return your tickets!  The Hollywood has to pay film studios/distributors for all sold tickets.  Please help us keep costs down and the theater full of happy moviegoers, and email to return your tickets to the sales inventory.  Your cooperation is appreciated!

For Producer, Benefactor, and Visionary members:
Monthly installment payments
If you have signed up for a Producer and above membership using the installment payments option, your first membership installment payment is charged immediately upon signing up.  For the months following your initial sign-up, membership installment payments are charged in two cycles:  on the first Monday of the month and on the third Monday of the month (where these dates may be holidays, charges will be run the following business day).  Your installment payment will be charged in the cycle that most closely aligns with your original purchase date (e.g., if you purchased on the 16th of the month, your card will be charged on the third Monday of every subsequent month).

If your credit card information changes during your installment schedule, please contact our business office at 503-281-1142 to provide the necessary information to update your record.  Should your credit card be declined for a monthly payment, we will get in touch to find out why.  If your credit card is declined three times during your installment schedule, we reserve the right to cancel your membership and revoke your membership privileges.

Canceling/Freezing Your Membership
Membership purchases at all levels are final and nonrefundable.  Once purchased, a membership may not be canceled, no matter the method of payment.  If you purchase a membership using our monthly installment payment option, you are pledging to pay the total amount of the membership, and your installment payments will continue until the full balance is paid.  Memberships cannot be temporarily or permanently frozen.  If for any reason there is payment owed upon a previous membership that we have been unable to collect, a new membership will not be issued until the previous balance is paid in full.
