fitzsimmons Posted July 7, 2014 Posted July 7, 2014 (edited) Just crawling out of hiding to let y'all know that I have secured tickets to the 8.01 taping. Anyone else going? Here are some helpful tips and information for getting tickets:Where to get tickets: Audiences Unlimited When to get tickets: Tickets are available thirty days before the taping at approximately 8:30 am PST, but they can go up as early as 8am. It does vary. Click here to see what time it is in Los Angeles right now so you know how that compares to your time zone. (That's 9:30am Mountain, 10:30am Central, and 11:30am Eastern.) Make sure to only submit for one ticket at a time, one for each name in your party. These are the dates that tickets will be available and for which shows: July 7 → 8/5/14 (CANCELED) July 14 → 8/12/14 (sold out) July 21 → 8/19/14 (sold out) August 4 → 9/3/14 (sold out) August 11 → 9/9/14 (sold out) August 25 → 9/23/14 (sold out) September 2 → 9/30/14 (sold out) September 15 → 10/14/14 (sold out) September 22 → 10/21/14 (sold out) September 29 → 10/28/14 (sold out) October 13 → 11/11/14 (sold out) October 20 → 11/18/14 (sold out) November 10 → 12/9/14 (sold out) November 17 → 12/16/14 (sold out) December 15 → 1/13/15 (sold out) December 22 → 1/20/15 (sold out) January 5 → 2/3/15 (CANCELED) January 12 → 2/10/15 (sold out) January 22 → 1/27/15 (sold out) January 23 → 2/18/15 (sold out) February 2 → 3/3/15 (sold out) February 9 → 3/10/15 (sold out) February 23 → 3/24/15 (sold out) March 2 → 3/31/15 (sold out) March 16 → 4/14/15 March 23 → 4/21/15 (finale) Where to fly into: Use the Matrix website to search flights out of and into multiple airports (if you have several options) as well as multiple travel dates to find the cheapest and best option for your travel. Bob Hope Airport (BUR) is located at 2627 N Hollywood Way Burbank, CA 91505, and is 4.2 miles away from the Warner Brother studios, but flights to this airport may be more expensive, less frequent, or unavailable. But it is an option to consider. Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is located at 1 World Way, Los Angeles, CA 90045, and is approximately 25.8 miles away from the Warner Brothers studios, but it is more likely to have better flight options, possibly better prices, and certainly more options for international travelers. Downside is its distance from Warner Brothers and travel to and from LAX can be brutal on weekday rush hour times, so be sure to allow a lot of time for travel. **Southwest Airlines allow you to change your flight dates with no penalty, so if you are concerned about booking flights in case your taping is rescheduled or canceled, this is a good way to go! (thanks delsino for this information) Read their refund policy here and their no change fees policy here.

How to travel: SuperShuttle: Service to and from LAX and BUR. Cheaper than a taxi. You can arrange for it to pick you up anywhere and take you to the airport for when you need to arrive for your flight. You can also arrange for the shuttle to pick you up for free from North Hollywood Station if traveling to Bob Hope Airport in Burbank. Primetime Shuttle: Service to and from LAX and BUR. Similar to the SuperShuttle, prices may vary between services, so check them both and see what's best for you. Rent a car: Both LAX and BUR have car rental services at the terminal. Uber/Lyft: These are apps you can download on your mobile phone. They are cheaper than taxis as they use local drivers (vetted by the companies) to pick you up and drive you to your destination for a price lower than cab fare. You can use this for local transportation between destinations or even to the airport if necessary. Public Transportation: The 222 Metro busline between Sunland and Hollywood/Highland station stops right outside of Gate 3. Other buses within walking distance are nearby as well, depending on your point of origin. Where things are located: Line up for Big Bang Theory Taping: Gate 3, Warner Brothers Studios, Burbank, CA (approx. 4301 W. Olive Ave, Burbank, CA 91505) Warner Brothers VIP Tours (approx. 3400 Riverside Dr Burbank, CA 91505) This is the view from across the street. If you drive, you will pull into the garage where it's marked on the right. The middle section is where the elevator and stairs from the garage come out. The left is where you will go line up early in the day. (Please note: the line does get moved inside around 3:30pm or so. That will be straight through that entrance with the elevator/stairs.) Here is a close up of the gap in the trees where you will enter to find the line in the parking lot. This is directly across the street from where you enter for the line. Good landmark and photo opp! This is what the line will look like when you arrive. The line starts at the benches and snakes back around the sidewalk. Please note: if the line is outside, it is standby AND guaranteed TOGETHER. Audiences Unlimited will split the line when they arrive around 3:30 and move you inside.
