The official word: Ticket packages to the World Premiere Derby Edition of “25 Hill” will be available [Wednesday] as planned, organizers said. Tickets were originally set to go on sale Monday, but demand overloaded the system temporarily.
The tickets will be sold on the www.25hill.com website, using the Ticketmaster system beginning at 11 a.m. Buyers will have the option to buy tickets by phone or online and pay a fee, or pick up the tickets for without a surcharge at the Akron Civic Theatre Box Office, 182 S. Main Street, downtown Akron.
A portion of the proceeds go to fund the All American Soap Box Derby. The details are as follows:
"WORLD PREMIERE OF 25 HILL AND DERBY EDITION DVD"
(package includes 1 ticket and 1 DVD)
"FAMILY PREMIERE OF 25 HILL AND DERBY EDITION DVD"
(package includes two tickets and one DVD)
“While we’re thrilled so many people have such a passionate interest in the film, we apologize for any delays” said Bernsen. “We’re confident our new set-up can handle demand.”
Ticketholders will receive their DVDs on the way out of the Civic after the shows. Arrangements to pick up the DVDs will be made later for those those who cannot make the shows after buying the DVD-ticket packages .
