The case of the abandoned screening ticket
About 50 people patiently waiting in middle of cinema in the line up at AMC for the 6:45 p.m. screening of Hotel Swooni.
As fresh popcorn pops at the concession, some are reading books, some are doing crosswords, others are listening to their iPods. Some even wolf down bad movie hotdogs as a hasty dinner.
Then a woman comes out of the bathroom asking if someone forgot their ticket for the screening there. No one answers. A TIFF volunteer takes it.
Then, we're ushered into our cinema.
