RSVP Cancellation Policy
Three-Strike Rule

We understand that unplanned issues can come up and you may need to cancel your attendance at a screening. If that happens, you must provide at least five (5) hours advance notice to allow the accommodation of other members on the waiting list. Cancellations must be made by email; phone cancellations will not be accepted.

After missing three screenings without sending a cancellation notice to events@wgaeast.org within the defined window, you will be notified that you have been placed on a three-month hiatus from attending WGAE screenings.

Please note that is your responsibility to track your reservations and strikes. You will only be notified upon your third and final strike that you have been placed on hiatus.

Our priority is ensuring that our programming is robustly attended and accessible to all members. We hope this policy will enable us to better serve the needs of all members.
