tcm classic film festival 2011…


The 2011 TCM Classic Film Festival Returns to Hollywood April 28 – May 1, 2011.

Last year’s TCM Classic Film Festival was great! This year should prove to be just as much fun. The theme this year is ‘music and the movies’, kicking off with AN AMERICAN IN PARIS (1951). I would suggest buying a pass to the festival although I went without a pass last year and was able to purchase walk-up tickets. The walk-up tickets were sold just prior to the show at the box office. We had to wait for those with passes to enter first… I made sure to get in line early and only missed out on one movie that I really wanted to see because the theatre filled up.  A pass doesn’t guarantee a seat either, but you stand a better chance of getting in if you arrive early.

Passes may be purchased  from TCM’s website. Passes may also be purchased by phone at 877.TCM.5764 from 10am to 6pm ET business days.

There are four levels of passes:
