A Guide Named Sue (that's me) attended the Tribeca Film Festival long before I started writing about it in this blog. Here are last year's reviews. This year, I already have tickets for 3 films at Regal Cinemas Battery Park and 3 films at Bow Tie Cinemas Chelsea thanks to the midweek $50 pass. I may buy other tickets or join the rush lines for other films.
This year I am breaking with my tradition of standing in line at the box office the first time single go on sale because I already have tickets. Also, instead of using my journeys to the theaters as a tour guide's "daze" off time to explore the City, I have scheduled tours to the theaters so you can join me and other Tribeca Film Festival participants for a little outdoor exercise before sitting down for one or more films. Each tour will take a different route to the theater. We will be walking anywhere from 1-2 miles during each tour.
Regal Cinemas Battery Park: I will be heading here 4/16 to see Autism in Love, 4/20 for Franny, and 4/23 for Shorts: Daily Grind. You can find more information and register for Downtown tours here. Exact starting place will be made known after registration.
Bow Tie Cinemas Chelsea: I will be heading here 4/21 to see Semi-Serious, 4/22 to see Virgin Mountain, and 4/24 for Code:Debugging the Gender Gap. Register for tours to Chelsea here. These tours are shorter and slightly less expensive because Chelsea is closer to midtown. Starting place will be made known after registration.
If these tours do not fit into your sightseeing plans, you might consider a private customized early morning tour. An early morning tour to MOMA will enable you to see the South and Central American architecture exhibit, Jacob Lawrence's Migration series and/or obtain your timed Bjork tickets before the crowds. Morning is also the best time to explore Central Park!
Welcome to the Tribeca Film Festival and NYC!
