Home Movies BOOM! Netflix Premiere Goes Awry As Ticketed Fans “Ticked” Off As They...
We thought Netflix was just not nice to the press. Turns out fans who signed for up tickets are treated just as badly at their events.
Many fans who acquired tickets through the company 1iota to the premiere of Netflix’s “Tick Tick Boom” are pretty angry and disappointed.
Writing on Twitter, they say well over 100 fans who had tickets to the premiere at the Schoenfeld Theater were turned away after being held on line for over two hours.
One fan, writing under the Twiiter account @rachrach, recalled:
“Finally on my way home after spending my whole night on line, freezing cold just to be told there were no more tickets. I would have loved to go to the other theatre but I couldn’t feel my feet or hands. #thanksalot…” They added: “The whole experience was very cold. There were people screaming at us in the beginning for our id’s and forms out then they disappeared and we were left waiting for over 2 hours with no information. It could’ve been handled in a much better way.”
@Rachrach wasn’t alone. Another Twitter account @oncerSM wrote:
“All of us had tickets, they had staff come much earlier and check our ID, vaccination cards, and COVID tests from the day before… We all got two different special bracelets to wear…After that we were left standing in the freezing cold for a good couple of hours, and then finally that’s when they told us that most people would not be getting in.”
They added: “Me and my friend got online around 6:30 and it was past 8:30 when they told us. They only let in around the first 15 people in line, my guess is the rest of the seats went to the press and cast that was there. They then told us that if we wanted we could walk up 14 blocks to another theater to see the movie. At that point we were numb and exhausted and could barely move.”
Sounds like fun! Glad my invite was lost in the mail.
