Buy Tickets

The Women's Balcony is on Stand-By. When a film is on Stand-By we are no longer selling tickets in advance. This does not mean that we are sold out and usually, everyone on Stand-By is able to see the film. 

One-hour before show time, we start selling Stand-By tickets at the theater on a first-come, first-served basis. Ten minutes before the film begins, standby patrons are admitted, as space permits until the theater is full. We are usually able to accommodate everyone on Stand-By. If we sell out and are not able to seat everyone, please accept our apologies.  Anyone who is unable to be seated will be immediately refunded their ticket price.

In a dramedy set in a religious Sephardic community in Jerusalem, what begins as a joyous celebration turns into disaster when a women’s balcony at an Orthodox synagogue collapses during a bar mitzvah party, injuring a number of people and leaving the senior rabbi in a state of shock. To the rescue comes a young and charismatic rabbi, but his fundamentalist ways soon divide the close-knit congregation along gender lines, unleashing a battle of the sexes.
