soldout

I just returned home from the cinema, where Jonestown was showing at The Tribeca Film Festival. I made sure to get there about an hour before the showtime but in the end, there was no luck. I stood in a long line with dozens and dozens of potential movie goers along the length of the cinema, but just before the show's scheduled time we were told by the Festival's staff that Jonestown was sold out. What a bummer! Supposedly, a certain portion of tickets were already reserved although according to its website, tickets for today's showing can be purchased at the box office only. So, I'm not quite sure how they were sold out when the queue never moved during my time there. Perhaps people purchased tickets earlier in the day long before the film's scheduled showtime.

I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With plays tomorrow at the same place. Since I'll be in Manhattan earlier in the day, I'll swing by the cinema in order to see if I can purchase tickets earlier than its evening showtime.

Hey, Su here from the online group/last-Thurs-of-the-month at Gilda's Club.

Did you end up seeing "I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With"? If so, what did you think?

I had heard Jeff Garlin talk about it on a past episode of "Dinner for Five" on IFC and wondered if it would every get released. Saw it was in the Tribeca but just as I no longer have the lower back for rock shows, tend to avoid film festivals for the mad rush/ hurryupandwait/ insane queue factors. I can't seem to find anything online about future release of the film. I'll let you know if I find anything.

I've started reading your blog (starting from the oldest going forward) and am really enjoying it. I did a lot of mass email updates to friends/family/coworkers during treatment and have been thinking of trying the blog form. Just getting my feet wet. It's so refreshing to be encountering other young cancer survivors (my friend Abby calls us bullfighters) who are open about their experiences. I really appreciate your writing and look forward to reading more.

Best,
Su
