All pre-purchasable tickets for the Sundance screenings of Thumbsucker are sold out.

That sucks for me (and anyone else that paid the pre-reg fee hoping to get passes), but bodes well for the film.

Hopefully it will pick up a distribution deal from the festival and will get released before summer.

The Sundance site says that tickets for sold-out screenings (link goes to a pdf file) may be available the day of the show, but I'm not going to be taking the chance on a fruitless 400 mile drive, especially one that may involve snow.

Tess, it's all up to you to get to one of those showings and write us a review.

I'm really sorry krix, it's been a while since you've reported on a k-man encounter and I would love to have known your impressions of the film and the scene at Sundance...but I completely agree with your reasons not to "turn up" and hope for a ticket. There are probably scalpers there with $500 ones!

There are a few passes up on Ebay, but they aren't for the night I can go and I bet they'll get too pricey for my budget anyway.

I wonder if it will be on the Sundance Channel.

Are you sure Keanu is going? Thumbsucker is not having an official 'premiere' like the other movies [it's not listed under world premieres on the sundance site] and there has been no mention of it in the press.

Posted by: Keanuette on January 14, 2005 12:06 PM

ummm, no, not really sure of anything but the only press I have seen about it was from your site.....sundance kids, club keanu posted it crediting you????

Originally, Margarete posted that he would be going, but the link she posted was no conclusive [actually it was misleading]. Then that article I posted from Empire Magazine said he was going, but I haven't seen anything else.

I mean, do they normally advertise the fact that so and so is going to Sundance? I know Lou Pucci will be doing because he has two films that are debuting there [Thumsucker and The Chumscrubber, which incidentally, Carrie-Anne Moss is in]. So, I don't really know what to think.

It does all look pretty cool though and I'm not surprised tix have gone fast.
