Things are a bit different for the opening night, red carpet screening.
Only Spotlight and Essential passholders are admitted, but anyone who holds one of these two pass types is guaranteed admittance as long as the arrive before the screening begins. There is no need to queue up or receive a queue card-simply enjoy a walk down the red carpet, enter the theater and find an open seat.
