Alumni Screening FAQs


Frequently Asked Questions

What does this cost?

Admission to this event requires advance registration and costs $10.00 per person (all ages).  Your registration fee includes the pre-movie reception at Petros (appetizers and soft drinks) and entry to the movie screening. 

How many seats can I reserve?

Seats are extremely limited for this special opportunity. Reservations are available only for Pepperdine alumni and their guests. Seats are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis with a maximum of eight (8) tickets per alumnus, and maximum of eight (8) tickets per family/household (in the case of multiple alumni in same home). Also, each group must include at least one Pepperdine alumnus attending. Guests may not register on their own unless they are Pepperdine alumni. If you are interested in bringing more guests than your online registration permits, please contact Dennis Lawrence at dennis.lawrence@pepperdine.edu or (310) 506-4765 ASAP to inquire about space availability (we can sometimes accommodate).

When is the deadline to reserve seats for this screening?

The deadline to reserve seats for this screening is 11:00 a.m. the day before the screening date OR when all available seats have been reserved, whichever occurs first. If space is full when you attempt to register, be sure to add yourself to the wait list.

What information do I need to provide in order to register?

Before registering, please be prepared to provide the following information:

      • Your first and last name, graduating class year and school
      • First and last names of each of your guests (spelled correctly)
      • If any of your guests are alumni, please confirm their graduating year and school if known, or at least be sure to check the "alumni" box for them when filling out their information

When does my party need to arrive at the theater in order to be admitted?

The event hosts from Disney have requested that all registered guests check in at the theater by no later than 30 minutes prior to the scheduled start time of the movie. The check-in location is typically located inside the main theater lobby and is specific to the movie you are registered to see. If you are waiting in a big line, you may be in the wrong spot. Please ask a theater attendant for check-in guidance upon arrival to ensure you are in the correct place!

After registering online, do I need to get a printed ticket for entry to the theater?

No. Once you have received registration confirmation by email, the names confirmed in the email will be added to an entry list that Disney reps will be using to check in attendees on the night of the screening. You will simply report to the check in table (see above for location) with your entire group at least 30 minutes prior to the scheduled start of the movie, and your group will be checked in based on the name of the primary registrant. No tickets needed.

What are the seating arrangements once inside the theater? Will all of the Pepperdine attendees be grouped together?

Disney and Seaver Alumni Relations have arranged for this special screening to be exclusive to Pepperdine and some select media groups. Seating is generally open-selection, so you will have the best opportunity for preferred seating locations if you arrive at least 30-40 minutes prior to showtime (earlier if your group size is large). Please be understanding and courteous with Disney and theater staff if your seating options are limited when you arrive or if you are not admitted due to arriving later than 30 minutes before the show. No refunds will be given for late arrivals or cancellations after 11/13

Are there any other important things I should know?

PLEASE SHOW UP: Our special arrangement with Disney will only last if we fill the seats that we have been given. Therefore, if you request tickets, please ensure that all members of your party attend the screening. If after registering, you find that any members of your party cannot attend, please notify Chad Quinones immediately at chad.quinones@pepperdine.edu so that we can still identify replacements and avoid eligibility issues with Disney for future screenings.

SECURITY: This screening could possibly involve a security check upon entry to the movie theater including but not limited to bag searches, metal detectors, and handing over any recording devices including smartphones. It is advised that you leave your cell phones in the car or be prepared to check them in at the event entrance (for pick up after the movie). Please make your guests aware of this possibility.

What is the refund policy?

No refunds will be given after November 13, 2017 for any circumstances due to Pepperdine having to commit reception food costs with the restaurant by November 13, 2017.
