Sharky's Box Office & Concessions

Kaitlynn-SharkysBoxOffice.JPGSharky's Box Office provides tickets to most films and events in Lumina Theater in conjunction with event hosts. We also distribute tickets for the Leadership Lecture Series, hosted by Campus Life Arts & Programs, and UNCWeekends off-campus events.

Sharky's Box Office is located on the first floor of the Fisher Student Center at the entrance to Lumina Theater.

Box Office Hours

Due to COVID-19, Sharky's is currently closed and will remain closed through the Fall 2020 semester. If you have a ticketing need for your event, please email Gillian Perry at with questions.

Sharky's opens for business on the first day of classes for each semester and summer session. Sharky's is closed for all UNCW breaks and holidays.


Please check the Lumina Theater Upcoming Event Schedule to find specific ticket information for the event you plan to attend. Please note that during the COVID-19 pandemic, many events may require an RSVP on Wavelink or through the department hosting the event in order to meet physical distancing requirements.

If a Lumina Theater movie or event is free and Sharky's is ticketing the event, tickets will be distributed one hour before the show, unless the event occurs when Sharky's is closed. Sharky's does not offer Will Call service for movies. Guests under 17 years old must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian for ANY event in Lumina Theater, regardless of the MPAA movie rating.  (An exception to this policy is provided for Isaac Bear students with valid UNCW Student IDs.)


Sharky's offers a wide variety of affordable concessions during our normal operating hours, including candy, popcorn, and soda. Food is permitted in Lumina Theater. If you are interested in adding concession items to your event reservation, you can do so through the Online Reservation System.


Sharky's Box Office accepts cash and Visa. We do not take checks, Mastercard, AmEx, or UNCW OneCard for ticket or concession purchases. Due to University regulations, Sharky's Box Office does not accept credit cards over the phone for ticket purchases.
