A reel headache

31 October 2005

Cinema, Aspirins and Vultures (Cinema, Aspirinas E Urubus)
Sunday 30th October, 15.30, Odeon West End 2

On Saturday I got a call from the London Film Festival asking if I had booked tickets for Marcelo Gomes’ new film, Cinema, Aspirins and Vultures. I had and was looking forward to taking a friend. ‘Er, there’s been slight problem…’, I heard. Why were they phoning me? Had I paid online properly? Had they double booked my seats?

It turns out the film reel was stuck in Tel Aviv. 

So...no cinema, no vultures and probably many aspirins for the person who had to phone up every member of a sold-out audience.

(The LFF were very helpful and I was offered a full refund or tickets to a replacement screening. I took the money.)
