Why we ask you to reserve in advance?

As a non-profit organization we pride ourselves on being able offer the experience of attending Doc Soup to as many people possible at an accessible price. Many subscribers cannot attend all screenings and so by having you confirm your attendance we know how many seats we have remaining. These seats can then be sold to members of the general public who are waiting in the Rush Line to see a film. This not only maximizes the number of people who can enjoy a screening but also benefits our subscribers by continuing to allow us to keep subscription costs lower.
