Lincoln Center Tickets Sell Out in Record Time

JediBO writes: Just a note to let everyone know that the Lord of the Rings weekend at Lincoln Center on Jan. 10-11 is sold out. Tickets went on sale this morning at 10 am by phone and at 11 am at the box office.

Initially I called, but after being put on hold for 45 minutes I was disconnected and decided to take a cab over to 66th and Broadway. When I got there at 11:15, there was a winding line of about 50 people standing in a constant rainy drizzle.

At 11:20, a security officer came out from the box office to tell everyone that Saturday’s events were completely sold out _ the only thing still available was “A Conversation with Peter Jackson” on Sunday. When I finally got to the ticket booth I asked how it was possible that the movie viewings were sold out if tickets just went on sale a half-hour ago and there were only 50 people in front of me. He said that Lincoln Center season-ticket holders got first dibs, and they were snatched up ahead of time. Phone-line tie ups and quick box-office sell outs?

This is starting to sound like Trilogy Tuesday all over again. Anyway, I was able to snag a pair of tix to Sunday’s event, so I’m looking forward to that.
