TIFF 11 Box Office

This year the box office is in Metro Hall on the concourse (underground) level. It opens on August 23 at 7:00 AM for programme book and package pick up.  The great news about this is once again there will be some protection from the elements when it comes to a lining up to drop off and pick up. I’m a big fan of the subterranean box office locations – it’s nice to be able to get your programme book and bag and have a minute to catch your breath instead of being thrust out onto a busy street corner.

You can access the box office from the King St Metro Hall entrance close to John St and take the escalator down to the concourse. For people familiar with the PATH system you can also get there directly from St. Andrew Station without surfacing by following the path signs to Metro Hall. This location is mere minutes from Roy Thompson Hall, Princess of Wales Theatre and the Lightbox.

This is not an official TIFF site. If it was I would not have to wait in so many lineups with my festival knapsack full of water, snacks, sunscreen and other supplies.

    I am from out of town and it is difficult to get into Toronto. What hours is the box office open?

    Regardless of the box office hours, ones the advance order process is done the best bet is to wake up at 6 AM and keep hitting refresh to try and get tickets each day. If you get tickets online for a showing you have time to have a nap, then drive into TO
