Nary a ticket left for movie screening

Once again, 'standing-room only' for a Phillies event. All five screenings tonight are sold out.

Nary a ticket left for movie screening

All five of tonight's screenings of the official Phillies World Series film are sold out. What they are calling the "red carpet" event at The Bridge Cinema De Lux, 4012 Walnut St., in Philly, is out of tickets. Those cost attendees $25, and not only will gain them access to the screening and to a chance to rub elbows with a number of Phillies players and executives, but will also provide them with a complimentary DVD copy of the film to take home.

The four other screenings, for $10 apiece, also are sold out. Those are being held at  Bala Theatre 3, Bala Cynwyd, PA.; Montgomeryville 10, Landsale, Pa.; Anthony Wayne Theatre 5, Wayne, Pa.; and Showcase at The Ritz Center 16, Voorhees, N.J.

The DVD is scheduled to be released tomorrow and a Blu-Ray version for high-definition will come out Dec. 16.

About this blog
Paul Vigna still has the seat he wrestled out of the concrete at Connie Mack Stadium parked in the finished basement, a 1980 Phillies championship mirror hanging above it. Now, why he’s kept an autograph of former Flyer Bruce Gamble on a sheet of Hockey Hall of Fame paper is another story. A native of Philly who grew up in Lansdale, he’s an assistant sports editor at the Daily News in charge of special projects who has written two columns related to sports and consumers: View From the Seats and Savvy Consumer.

Athletic contests were, for a long time, simply fun and games. Nowadays they’re just a small part of a sports entertainment industry that puts billions of dollars into play and a number of issues into motion. Moneyball indeed. You might be closer to the action than ever before, but that privilege comes at a price - and often it’s beyond what you can afford.

With that as the backdrop we’ll use this blog to dig out stories and swap advice about how the fan experience is changing and what it’s costing you now and in the future. Some of it will educate, some will let you vent. And in a sports panel format, it should allow for a consensus of opinion that can carry some weight.
