UPDATED: 58 Wisconsin Film Festival sellouts; festival starts Thursday

phaseiv

Obviously it would have been better for headline purposes if only 56 films had sold out, so I could have made a play on “56 Up” somehow. But you just weren’t satisfied, were you Wisconsin Film Festival fans?

As of Sunday night, 58 films at the festival had all or some screenings sold out in advance. Which still leaves a lot of films with advance tickets still up for sale (if you can see a movie on a weekday afternoon, you’re in the catbird’s seat). And every screening will have a limited number of rush tickets released at the door — get to the theater at minimum an hour early, bring something good to read while you wait in line, and you’ve got a pretty good shot.

Advance tickets will be on sale through Wednesday at wifilmfest.org and the festival box office on the first floor of Union South. After that — well, the festival starts Thursday, so they wouldn’t be advance tickets any more, would they? — you can buy them on the day of the show at the venue. Follow me at @r0bt77 — I’ll be live-tweeting the festival and linking to reviews I’ll be writing for both this blog and 77 Square.

Oh, and get some extra sleep between now and Thursday if you can.

56 Up” — all three original screenings are sold out, but a fourth screening has been added at 9:15 a.m. Saturday at Union South, and advance tickets remain for that.
