I've had to surrender my phone @ other screenings (ex the Namesake) too - I didn't the security were being uptight at all...Char|otte wrote: ↑Jun 25th, 2009 1:59 amI just saw the Toronto screening and no IDs were being checked, but all bags were being searched by 'security' (or just some guy with that written on his shirt). And all cell phones were being confiscated for the time being and given back at the end of the movie -- under the pre-tense of it being a 'recording device' :P
But when I went to watch the screening of Last Chance Harvey, none of this invasion of privacy happened. Things were more enjoyable as opposed to an atmosphere of high alert and all the employees at the door being stressed out and such.
Yeah, I went to Wednesday's Toronto screening - the theatre employees were really lax - the women I gave the email to barely checked it... I just changed the number of the seats to 2 - it worked for me, hopefully it'll work for others
... BTW - for those yet to see it, I REALLY liked this movie - real, relatable and unconventional story - ENJOY!
