Box Office

Another Kind of Influencing Machine

If anyone attending True/False ever stopped to consider where the Fest’s tickets were printed (and, let’s be honest, this elite group of daydreaming nerds and visionaries is surely very, very small), they probably imagine some sort of corporate-industrial fortress, belching smoke into the sky above Earth City, MO, a sad robot toiling away day and night in a sub-sub-basement, churning out the more than thirty thousand tickets that are distributed at the T/F Box Office each year.

Those visionary nerds would be wrong!

Every ticket is actually printed on a mini-thermal ticket printer sitting atop the ping-pong table in the basement of T/F materials coordinator and signage czar Glenn Rice’s basement. Rice has produced an impossibly entertaining, one-minute-long, lovingly annotated film that explains the process in loving detail.

If a film you wanted to see is not on this list, remember there is still a good chance you can get in at the door by using the Q system. Inevitably, some of the people who reserved tickets don’t show up, and we make those seats available for patrons at the door with our ingenious “Q” system.

Remember, NRT stands for “No Reserve Tickets” and it means that all the tickets for a film have been purchased or reserved by passholders. When this happens, there are no longer tickets available from the Box Office for a screening. We don’t say “SOLD OUT!” because there is still a good chance you can get in at the door by using the Q system. Inevitably, some of the people who reserved tickets don’t show up, and we make those seats available for patrons at the door with our ingenious “Q” system.

Stay tuned for more updates!
