Films FAQ

Q:

How do I purchase tickets?

A:

Tickets are available for pre-purchase on our Event Calendar. Please see ticket purchase details.

Q:

Where do I park?

A:

Philbrook parking lots will be open, however, space is limited. Street parking is available. Please do not block neighbor driveways.

Q:

Can I bring lawn chairs?

A:

Yes, but only for seating towards the back of the Film Lawn. Chairs are not permitted on the front half of the lawn closer to the film screen. Please call Guest Experience at 918-748-5300 if you have questions.

If the weather has been damp recently, you may want to bring a tarp for blanket seating.

Q:

Can I bring food/alcohol? Will food/beverages be available for purchase?

A:

Grab a burger and a beverage (alcoholic and non) from Kitchen 27’s walk-up Burger Bar. Concessions will also be available on the Film Lawn prior to the film start for all those must-have movie snacks! Picnicking is permitted in the Gardens. Outside alcohol is not allowed.

Q:

Is the Film Lawn accessible?

A:

Yes, our Film Lawn is accessible for those using a wheelchair or mobility device. However, the path from the museum building to the lawn involves somewhat steep ramps and uneven pathway surfaces, and the mobility device will need to go onto the grass for film viewing. After the film concludes, guests must exit the Gardens by way of a steep hill. Golf cart rides are available by request for those with mobility needs before and after the film.

A limited number of wheelchairs are available to our guests at no charge and on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you have questions or for more information about accessible parking and accommodation, please contact us at 918-748-5300 in advance of your visit.

Q:

Are dogs allowed?

A:

Pets and emotional support animals are not permitted in our galleries, gardens, or on the grounds. Service animals are welcome.

Q:

What if it rains?

A:

In case of rain or other inclement weather, the film may be cancelled. Ticket-holders will be notified via email and will have one week from the date of the event to contact Philbrook at 918-748-5300 to exchange film tickets for another film, upcoming event, or apply the funds toward a Membership. All sales are final.

Q:

What kinds of COVID-19 safety measures are in place?

A:

In accordance with CDC guidance, Philbrook strongly recommends masks for all visitors indoors, regardless of vaccination status. Masks are required indoors for visitors ages 5+ who are not fully vaccinated. Timed entries help prevent crowding and long lines.
