THURSDAY. APRIL 20th, 2017WORDS AND DRAWINGS BY JOSHUA MICHAEL PAULIN
Bobby Deniro’s (can I call you Bobby? No? ok.) Robert Deniro’s 16th annual Tribeca Film Festival starts today and we have made it pretty easy to bounce around the city and the silver screens.
My email made a noise, so I checked it. Awesome! It was a confirmation for Tribeca Film Festival's opening night event at Radio City Music Hall. I printed off my ticket and headed uptown. Ok, here is the scene: there were a lot of people holding signs/directing traffic and also yelling, lots of yelling. The will call line is wrapped around the block and part of the world at this point, I'm glad I didn’t have to be in that line. The usher confirms this, twice. Before you know it, I’m on the stairs of Radio City about to get my ticket scanned. The woman scans it. Now my ticket is making a noise, not as pleasant as the sound from my email. “Come with me” the woman says in a Terminator like manner. I’m inside! Yay. I’m out the back door! No. Ok, I should of been in the will call line and to be brutally honest, it was noted in the email. Well, you could be in the same boat (probably won’t) but I’m going to help you out.
Below you will find a streamlined list of films to see, what theaters are playing the films, and the quickest way to get there. That should calm those nerves.
