Taylor Swift’s ‘Eras Tour’ Movie Is Coming, So Here’s *All* The Info You Need On Scoring Tickets

Didn’t get tickets to Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour? Turns out, you may not have to. The pop superstar announced on Aug. 31 that the Eras Tour is now going to be a movie, screened in AMC Theatres nationwide starting Oct. 13. OK, time to freak out! How do you get tickets? Is it the full concert? What should you wear? Don’t worry — I’ve got all the info you need.

Swift announced the tour by posting a trailer for the concert film that showcases the full glitz and glamor of the Eras Tour Swifties have come to know and love. “The Eras Tour has been the most meaningful, electric experience of my life so far and I’m overjoyed to tell you that it’ll be coming to the big screen soon,” Swift wrote in the caption. “Starting Oct 13th you’ll be able to experience the concert film in theaters in North America! Tickets are on sale now. Eras attire, friendship bracelets, singing and dancing encouraged. 1, 2, 3 LGB!!!! (iykyk).”

So grab your wallet and your concert buddies — I hope you didn’t lose your Eras Tour outfit, if you already had one. No need to wonder about what would happen “if this was a movie,” because now, it is.

When is the ‘Eras Tour’ movie coming to theaters?

The concert film, titled Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour, will be in AMC Theatres in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico starting Oct. 13. According to Billboard, AMC is planning to run the film four times a day on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, hopefully meaning that everyone who wants to go will be able to at least once.

How do I get tickets and how much do they cost?

Great question. This is Swift we’re talking about, so expect tickets to go fast, but you can go to the AMC Theatres website to get your tickets, as well as Cinemark and Fandango. In fact, when you first get to the website, you’ll be automatically entered into the queue for tickets (thankfully, this queue seems to be taking much less time than the Ticketmaster queue for actual Eras Tour tickets). From there, AMC will ask you to enter your location and then show the available showtimes at theaters near you. Some people are experiencing issues with the site, which AMC had warned of, even noting that they’d prepped their server to handle five times the site’s highest capacity.

In a statement, they said, “AMC is also aware that no ticketing system in history seems to have been able to accommodate the soaring demand from Taylor Swift fans when tickets are first placed on sale. Guests wanting to be the first to buy their tickets online may experience delays, longer-than-usual ticket- purchase waiting-room times and possible outages. AMC is committed to ensuring any delays or outages are addressed as quickly as possible.”

As for the cost of Eras Tour movie tickets, those will make Swifties a lot happier: An adult ticket costs $19.89 (fitting, since 1989 (Taylor’s Version) will drop just two weeks after the movie opens in theaters), while a child’s ticket is $13.13, a nod to Swift’s favorite number.

How Long Is The Taylor Swift ‘Eras Tour’ Movie?

According to AMC’s website, the movie clocks in at two hours and 45 minutes total. That is shorter than the actuals Eras Tour concerts — half an hour less than the three hours and 15 minutes of Swift’s in-person performances. There’s no word yet on what’s been cut, but I can already practically hear the fan outrage at which songs will meet the chopping block.

Where was the movie filmed?

According to the Los Angeles Times, L.A. Swifties got lucky: The concert film was shot at SoFi Stadium, where Swift did a six-concert run not even a month ago (her final show in Inglewood was on Aug. 9). It’s not immediately clear which SoFi show it was, which could matter for the notorious surprise songs (assuming those weren’t cut entirely from the film). Here are the surprise songs Swift played at each night in SoFi, so choose your fighters:

  • Aug. 3: “I Can See You” and “Maroon”
  • Aug. 4: “Our Song” and “You Are in Love”
  • Aug. 5: “Death by a Thousand Cuts” and “You’re on Your Own, Kid”
  • Aug. 7: “Dress” and “Exile”
  • Aug. 8: “I Know Places” and “King of My Heart”
  • Aug. 9: “New Romantics” and “New Year’s Day”

Variety notes there were extra cameras present in the stadium at the first three L.A. shows, so it’s also possible that the film could be an amalgamation of a few different performances.

Will Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour movie be on streaming?

There’s been no word yet on when the film will leave theaters, but it’s very possible that it could head to streaming soon. Swift has partnered with Netflix before, both on the Reputation Tour concert film in 2018 and her 2020 documentary, Miss Americana. She also released folklore: the long pond studio sessions on Disney+ in 2020, so she might return to one of those platforms after The Eras Tour is gone from theaters.

Theaters are also offering Eras Tour merch.

Here’s another incentive to get tickets ASAP: You can get Eras Tour merch at the theater. Some is free, like the mini poster that you get while supplies last just for buying a ticket. Others you can buy at the theater, like the collectible Eras Tour popcorn bucket for $14.99 and the collectible fountain drink cup for $11.99. Again, this is while supplies last, so IMO, your best bet is to get an opening night ticket if you still can.
