Attention, all prospective attendees!
Passes for the 3rd annual TCM Classic Film Festival will go on sale November 9. GET YOUR PASSES EARLY–last year they had 25,000 attendees. The theme this year is Style in Movies, and the opening night Gala screening will be a newly remastered version of Cabaret, which promises to be spectacular.
Robert Osborne will be there as well as Ben Mankiewicz, and a whole slew of celebrity guests who haven’t been announced yet–but last year they had Debbie Reynolds, Angela Lansbury, Peter O’Toole…all kinds of amazing people.
This is the first year I will be able to afford to go. It’s not cheap by any stretch of the imagination, but by all accounts, it’s worth every penny. Obviously, I’ll be updating constantly while I’m there, and if Backlots gets its media accreditation (I’ll find out in early 2012), I’ll be able to have some behind-the-scenes info for the site. Fingers crossed!
Hope to see you there!
