Friends of Film
Open to all Museum members, Friends of Film connects people who love the art of film, have a desire to learn more, and want to meet others with similar enthusiasm. Participation includes two free tickets (subject to availability) to regularly priced films ($9 member, $11 nonmember), invitations for two people to attend programs, and runs on the same annual cycle—with the same expiration date—as your MFA membership. Join today!
University Membership grants full-time undergraduate students $5 film tickets (regularly priced screenings purchased in person). Learn more and see how your school participates
Groups of 10 or more are eligible for discounted tickets for most of our films. For more information, please call 617-369-3310.
The MFA Film Program strives to make film screenings accessible to people of all abilities. Wheelchair and companion seating are available in both auditoriums, as are FM assistive listening devices. Many of the films we play are presented with English subtitles and whenever possible we obtain open captioned and audio described screening materials for use upon request. If you have any questions about accessibility at the MFA please call 617-369-3189. For inquires about specific film screenings please call 617-369-3687.
