In the box that appears, type in your member number (the last four digits of the number under the magnetic stripe on the back of your card) and click submit.

STEP THREE
The member ticket type will appear. If you have a “Plus One” membership, the member ticket type will say “Dual Member.” Select the desired quantity of tickets and then click “Add to Cart.”

Once you have added the tickets to your shopping cart, you can either click “Continue Shopping” under the DOC NYC logo to purchase tickets to other films, or you can finish placing your order by selecting your delivery method and clicking “checkout” at the bottom of the screen. For the delivery method, we recommend selecting “E-Ticket” which will allow you to print your ticket at home or keep your tickets on your smartphone.
