New Location, Same Convenience, Great Service
We’ve moved our box office this year just ½ block off of Front Street, to the corner of State and Park Streets. And we’ve got a great volunteer team standing by, ready to assist you with merchandise and ticket sales.
“We’re excited about improvements at the box office this year,” reports Linda Koebert, TCFF manager. “Our computer system is easier than ever to use, our phones inform callers when lines are busy, and our staff has even more training than before. We want everyone’s festival experience –starting with ticket purchases– to be easy.”
“The new box office will also feature a comfortable, air-conditioned lounge where folks can view continuously running movie trailers and make final ticketing decisions with the help of our friendly staff, who have a lot of great information about every film. I like to think of the Box Office as the Welcome Wagon for the entire festival, “ Koebert says.
Don’t Worry; There Are More Movies Than Ever!
It’s a common misperception that the festival sells out. Not true! And with more films featured than in any previous year, it’s easy to attend movies that fit your interest and schedule. Sure, a few of the more well-known films might fill up quickly, but don’t despair; you still have an excellent chance of getting a ticket by visiting the “stand by” line shortly before the movie. Or, you can just close your eyes and point to any movie in the Film Guide. Whether it’s a cool short, an edgy documentary, a moving tribute, a foreign flick, a Hollywood classic, or a new narrative… for TCFF 2012, as for every year, we promise nothing but “just (infinitely) great movies.”
