FAQs

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

No.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

There are many options for transport to the event.  Cineplex Cinemas Yorkdale is located at the north-east corner of Yorkdale (Hwy 401 and Allen Rd/Dufferin) and is connected to the TTC at Yorkdale Station (on Line 1).  There is also ample parking at the mall.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Kindly contact us via the Event Organizer link below.

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

Certainly, we appreciate that sometimes plans change and thet you might not be able to attend the event but still wish some to use your ticket.  Simply give them the ticket for entry.  Each ticket can only be used once and will be scanned at the entrance to the event.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

When purchasing a ticket, you should receive an email with an electronic version of your ticket (including a bar-code).  Kindly print this, or bring on your mobile device, for entry to the event. Upon entry, you will be provided with your vouchers for your popcorn and a drink (one each per ticket purchased).

The name on the registration/ticket doesn’t match the attendee. Is that okay?

This is alright as we will simply be tracking the attendees through scanning their tickets upon entry. This does mean however, that copying the tickets is not permissable as once a ticket has been used for entry, a second version of the same ticket will be refused entry.
