#CovertheCode

It’s a theatre goer’s worst nightmare: you’ve just scored tickets to that show you’ve been dying to see. After excitedly taking a ticket selfie, you post the picture of your tickets on social media. You think you’re ready for your show, but when you get to the doors you’re turned away because someone stole your tickets using the picture you posted online.

Don’t let this happen to you — stop counterfeiters by following one simple rule when sharing pics of your tix online: Cover the Code. On your paper or mobile ticket there is a one-of-a-kind barcode and if anyone acquires it they can make duplicate tickets to use or sell that render your tickets worthless.

 

Don’t post pics of your tickets online with the barcode showing before the event happens. This includes paper tickets and mobile tickets.  If you see family or friends sharing tickets online, please ask them to kindly #CoverTheCode.

Avoid taking screenshots that expose personal information like your first and last name, address, or credit card, especially during your checkout and confirmation experience on Ticketmaster.

Only buy tickets from official sources. There are many ticket re-sellers and secondary markets for tickets. For the best seats and to eliminate the risk of fraud, get tickets through the Hollywood Pantages Box Office, HollywoodPantages.com or Ticketmaster. Purchasing tickets from any other seller runs a high risk of receiving fraudulent tickets.

 

 

Don’t Be Jimmy

With a line up that includes, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, White Christmas, The King and I, Rent, Motown, Circus 1903, Finding Neverland, American in Paris, The Bodyguard, The Book of Mormon, and Hamilton, the Hollywood Pantages 2016-2017 season is one for the record books. While the crew here at the theatre is jumping up and down with excitement, we are also very worried. There are a lot of websites popping up claiming to have tickets to shows that have yet to go on sale. We always want to make sure that everyone that buys a ticket to one of our shows gets to walk through the doors hassle free and be a part of Hollywood History. PLEASE read the information below and watch the video. Share with friends so that no one has to experience the pain of fraudulent tickets.
