How to get tickets to a premiere…
If your dream is to see Brad Pitt? I have the solution: attend the premiere!Easy thing to say, a little bit harder in reality. It’s hard to get to see your idol but a premiere is just such an occasion. Some people sleep outside for two days before they even catch a glimpse of Daniel Radcliffe’s backside.
In Paris, you can easily buy a ticket on lafnac.fr, for example. The price is around 15 euros. In London it’s a completely different procedure. Unfortunately you can’t just go on a website click, order and pay.
They are still things you can do:
- Know the right people.
The easiest way to get tickets to a movie premiere is to know someone related to the movie. But I guess that if you are part of this category you would not be reading this article now. Your new rule now is: be friendly to everybody, you never know, one day maybe you will hear, « last week I saw my cousin Quentin Tarantino …. »
- Be generous.
Yes, a picture of yourself and Tom Cruise is possible if you invest in charities. Sometimes tickets to movie premieres are sold to raise money for a charity. You can buy a ticket and probably get a tax deduction later, smart!
