How do I book tickets with the Festival Pass?

Your Festival Pass allows you to acquire tickets for cinema screenings as well as for screenings that are streamed online. 


Cinema tickets can be acquired with the pass at the box office at the earliest the day before the chosen screening. If a screening is sold out, any return tickets will be released 5 minutes before the beginning of the screening. We open a waiting list 30 minutes before the beginning of the screening at the respective cinema. Please note that your pass does not guarantee you a ticket. Due to Covid measures, we have limited space in the cinemas this year. We therefore kindly ask you to only acquire tickets for screenings that you really intend to watch. 


Even streamed films can be sold out. You can book your online screenings via the corresponding ticket button on our website using the number on the black pass card. It is possible to purchase an online pass exclusively for online screenings through our home page. Advance sales for online screenings starts one week before the festival. 

How does the Multipass work?

Your Multi-Pass entitles you to acquire 4 cinema tickets of your choice. These can be obtained at the box office during the entire duration of the festival.

How does the Explorer Day Pass work?

The Explorer Day Pass can be purchased at the box office of Stadtkino Basel. Please bring identification that proves your age. The Explorer Day Pass is personal and can not be used by others. It allows you to acquire tickets for as many screenings per day as you can watch. Please note that you can only obtain tickets for subsequent screenings. It is not possible to acquire tickets for screenings with overlapping times. Tickets can not be acquired online. The Explorer Day Pass is not valid for the streaming platform.
