I've been hearing from people all day about problems. Here's the short story I filed a little while ago for tomorrow's Beacon Journal:
Computer problems stalled sales of tickets to the July premieres of "25 Hill," which were supposed to begin Monday.
A representative of the film, set and shot mainly in the Akron area, said the problems should be worked out by Wednesday.
The problems, which initially appeared to result from more interest than the site could handle, at first kept ticket buyers from getting to the online sales location, the only place the tickets are available. Monday afternoon, people could get to the sales site but could not get their orders confirmed.
Mary Ethridge, an executive producer of the movie, said no charges were made to people who attempted to order, nor was their information compromised.
The movie, inspired by the All-American Soap Box Derby, will premiere in the Civic Theatre on July 9 and 10.
