Purchasing Tickets
The MFAH Films box office accepts payment by cash and credit card. Tickets may be purchased in advance in three ways: online, via ticket links on or pages; in the MFAH lobbies during Museum hours; and at the box office prior to screenings. The box office opens an hour before showtime. In order to allow as many people as possible to be seated on time, staff may need to refrain from printing multiple advance tickets within the hour of a posted film screening.

Closed-Captioning & Audio-Description Capabilities
Brown Auditorium Theater is equipped for closed-captioning and audio-description services when the film presented has such features enabled. Please note that the MFAH screens rare and rediscovered prints of movie classics; new and historical works; restored silent films; thematic retrospectives; and innovative works by contemporary film, video, and new-media artists. Many of these titles are not distributed with closed-captioning and audio-description capabilities.
