We have opened the number of tickets available for LOST 2020. However, there still is a maximum limit of 250 attendees at Sacred Hearts Academy where we will be showing the finale screening on May 22. That means the first 250 people to register will be the only attendees to see the first screening of the finale on Friday, May 22, at the church where it filmed. These attendees will have unique wrist bands that give them access to the church.
We will also hold a second screening on the day the finale aired, Saturday, May 23, immediately following the cast Q&A and signing session. All attendees will be able to attend this screening — including those who saw it the previous evening. The location for this screening is the Hawaii Convention Center where we will be holding the day’s events.
There is no change in cost for attending LOST 2020; we’ve simply added an additional screening.
Why did we open up tickets to more people? Simply put, we’re going to hit the 250-attendee mark soon. We don’t want to keep people from attending LOST 2020 solely because of a space limitation at just one event across our 4-day itinerary.
Will this still be a small event? Or will there now be thousands of attendees? Even though we’re opening up space for additional attendees, LOST 2020 will still purposely be a small event. A setting where you all everybody can get to know each other.
How will we know when you’ve hit 250? I will update the screening page to note the tickets which include the screening at Sacred Hearts Academy are sold out.
Where do the extra funds from additional ticket sales go? Adding more attendees increases our expenses at Kualoa and the pilot screening, our food costs per person (at Kualoa and our wrap party), as well as our transportation costs to/from Kualoa. We’ve also paid additional licensing fees to show the finale and added venue costs at the Convention Center. These funds also help offset the beer pour with Patchy which wasn’t part of our original schedule but we’re very excited to add. Finally, these extra funds may go to getting more cast (which covers flights, hotels, appearance fees and incidentals). I already have spoken with several who are interested in attending, but can’t confirm until we are closer to the event due to their schedules.
If following the event there is money left over (unlikely, but possible), as before in 2014, it will be donated to Cancer Gets Lost and their charity of choice for our event: the Colorectal Cancer Alliance.
Does this mean I need to book my ticket now? If you want to see the finale in the church where it filmed, yes – we strongly recommend you book your ticket now.
Please note that badges and, if applicable, unique wrist bands will be checked for access and there will be security at these events.
