A Christmas Tale

French Film Festival Classic staring Catherine Deneuve!
Full details here: http://www.ifi.ie/film/a-christmas-tale-2/

Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1yPhab421Q

Hi all,
Please be sure to book your ticket in advance online for this Friday's film A Christmas Tale, if you haven't already, or go in and buy it from the box office. The French Film festival can sell out and there might not always be tickets on the day - plus, in cinema 2 which is relatively small.

The IFI website is not the most user friendly but you can get there eventually! If in doubt call their box office:[masked]

Let's meet in the foyer at 5.45 pm - the IFI bar can be a bit mental on Fri evening, so depending on how things go, lets meet in the foyer again after the film and decide where to go - if it too packed/noisy, we could always try Il Baccaro - a nice winebar, virtually next door in Meeting House Square...

Looking forward to seeing you all!

My phone number is[masked] if anyone can't find us - before or after the film!

Mary :)

    Hey everyone. Just wondering if any of the rest of you turned up 'on standby' and were turned away? I ask this because after having met up with the group after the film and directors talk, it has come to light that the whole front row of seats were empty! While I was on the 'standby' queue, there were others whom had also been told by the box office people to come in 'on stabdby'. A few people were disgruntled by the set up regarding the lack of proper customer service i.e. not answering the phone and the badly laid out website. It is such a pity that this should be the case in what is otherwise a lovely venue, and to think that there were indeed empty seats! If enough people let their feelings be known to the IFI at least something might be done to improve their customer relations. The fact that we were attending as a group is also significant in terms of having some relevence to this.

    As karina said film was booked out when I tried to book it yesterday. However I'll try and make it to be "on standby" later on and see what happens. Enjoy the film everyone!

      Good luck! Hopefully see you there. I know this sounds odd, but maybe if you're going to come on standby and there aren't any tickets, why not go to see Parkland instead - at 18.15 and we could still meet after.

    Hi Mary, finally got through to box office. Tickets are sold out, however it was suggested by the lady in the box office to turn up in anticipation of some 'no show' ticket holders and they then release the tickets for re-sale, so I will chance it at she said that there is a good possibility of securing a ticket just prior to the screening. See you tommorrow. K.

      P.S. .... It took me about 2hrs to get through to box office! If anyone else is in the same boat about not having a ticket and is still keen go going, the best thing to do is go 'on standby' for an unused ticket. You'll have me to thank for saving you the time trying to get through to the box office only to be told the same thing lol! Dont bother with the website either as you will only drive yourself mad in the process!

    Hi Mary, dont have my ticket booked yet but been trying for ages to get through to the booking office about availability as it states that a small number of tickets may become available for show times marked in pink. I will keep trying....will let you know the outcome. (I see what you mean about their website Mary....not good)

      Hi Karina! Glad to see you're coming! I don't know how but stupid message about a few tickets becoming available for shows marked in pink is so misleading! No show is marked in pink but the page is full of pink borders! ;)

      Somehow, I got through online eventually and booked my ticket although I had the same message - so at least two days ago, there were tickets! Good luck! Mary
