Received a Confirmation for Box 49

My friend received a confirmation for box 49 at 11:05 PM on Saturday, August 30, 2008. We got most of our picks, but the ones we didn't get are not what we would've expected.

We got what I would've thought would be popular films:

  • JCVD (the midnight madness showing)
  • Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
  • New York, I Love You
  • The Wrestler
  • The Brothers Bloom

We didn't get the following, so assuming no errors, these would be sold out by at least box 49 if not earlier:

  • The Biggest Chinese Restaurant in the World
  • Food Inc.
  • 24 City
  • Synecdoche, New York
  • Kabuli Kid
  • Country Wedding


Midnight Madness has had the tradition of RARELY selling out. While us filmophiles would love a chance to see Self Deprecating Jean Claude at midnight screening, most Torontotonians want to see Brad Pitt or attend a fancy hollywood screening.

I think Underworld was the only midnight madness I can recall selling out DURING the package processing time period.

Damn it, why did I have to be in box 65? I can't believe that 24 City sold out! Which screening was it? I chose the thursday one, and hopefuly there will still be tickets available for that.

Hey, don't complain OK, I'm box.... 5.... And I'm from out of town, which mean I can't do anything with my vouchers ! I just spent a huge amount of money for tickets that I won't be able to use, since I'm only in Toronto 3 days. So nice !


The 24 City screening we didn't get was the one on Tuesday, Sept 9 at 3:15 PM.

I was in Box 61 and received 25 of my first picks (out of 30).

Hi Richard, which screenings for those films were sold out? I'm compiling a list of unavailable screenings over in the forums of ... hopefully that'll help for people who are trying to make adjustments tomorrow.

These are the showings we didn't get:

Sat, Sept 6 12:00 PM The Biggest Chinese Restaurant in the World, AMC 6

Tue, Sept 9 3:15 PM Food, Inc, AMC 10

Tue, Sept 9 3:15 PM 24 City, AMC 1

Thu, Sept 11 12:15 PM Synecdoche, New York Scotiabank 1

Fri, Sept 12 12:30 PM Kabuli Kid Varsity 5

Great, thanks!

Synecdoche, New York was sold out for me too (box 49) but also Gigantic which really surprised me.
