Matinee vs Classic Pass

6 posts in this topic

It seems like the only difference is that you can't go to the Club after 6 PM, if you purchase the "matinee" pass. Am I correct?

 

If, so, what do you miss in the evening?

 

Where is the blasted schedule, anyway?

It's more than just access to Club TCM. The Matinee Pass is only good for events, panels and films that start before 6:00 pm.

 

From the Festival website:

DETAILS

 

* Access to all film programs starting prior to 6pm at all festival venues Friday, April 29-Sunday, May 1

* Admission to Club TCM events and panels at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel until 6pm daily, Friday, April 29 - Sunday, May 1

* Commemorative festival program

 

 

Movie Screenings typically begin at 9 in the morning and go into the night. Last year there were late-night screenings on both Friday and Saturday night.

 

The closing party was held at Club TCM after the last screening and that was about 10:00 that Sunday night.

 

From the sounds of the description of the Matinee Pass, you wouldn't be able to attend any films that begin after 6:00 pm and there will be plenty of evening films nor the closing night party.

 

Last year that had a great band (hoping they are coming back) that played Club TCM on Saturday night and that definitely was after 6:00 pm.

 

Plus, the whole meeting up with other film fans goes on all day and into the late hours of the night at Club TCM.

 

*Where is the blasted schedule, anyway?*

 

Last year, it was published towards the end of March so be patient. It's coming.

Hi all-

 

To further clarify the difference between Matinee and Classic Passes--please note that Matinee Pass benefits begin on Friday, April 29 rather than on Thursday, April 28.

 

The event schedule will be released very soon. We appreciate your patience.

Except for Matinee passes (so far), the festival is completely sold-out. Does anyone know how many passes were sold? There's no reason to keep it secret and I'd find it interesting, and also the number of passes for each level. And how many were sold last year?
