Hi Gang, am very sorry sebab i tak dan nak buat blog entry about my misadventures in Los Angeles this is because Los dan Faun is starting this sunday, so i am busy the gila babas, but i have to do this little deed as it involves me in the long run. HELP US MAKE BETTER MALAYSIAN MOVIES. Help support GUBRA. Me and some kodoks went on the ninth and we resoundly agree it is a movie which has everything and overall a powerful provocative film experience. In short, i am confident that you have never seen what Yasmin has done in GUBRA, in any other Malaysian film. GO SEE IT TODAY. TOMMOROW MAY BE TOO LATE.
TAKEN FROM THE VISITOR's BLOG :
PHANTOM AUDIENCE AT GUBRA?
TO ALL WHO ARE GOING TO SEE GUBRA, PLEASE READ THIS:
As they say, "kuch kuch hota hai". Something, something, is happening. Yasmin wrote on her blog that several friends, including her producer Elyna, had gone to the cinema to buy tickets for Gubra but was told that the show they wanted was sold out. But their friends who had managed to get tickets for the same show went into the hall and found it half empty.
Now, this is extremely odd. Unless there were some massive coincidence, it wouldn't be that every single one of the booked tickets were uncollected.
Read about it here.
Yasmin found out later that someone has been making large bookings. She says:
"What's been happening is this. Someone, or some people, out there have been making false bookings in large numbers. However, only half the seats are available for bookings. which explains why the screenings are very often exactly only half full.
"I don't know what can be done about it, but that, it would seem, is what's been happening."
Strange, isn't it?
Anyway, no one wants to speculate, and certainly no one wants to make any accusations. But what we want is to make sure those who want to see the movie are able to do so.
So, here's my suggestion:
DON'T MAKE PHONE OR INTERNET BOOKINGS. GO STRAIGHT TO THE CINEPLEX COUNTER AND WAIT UNTIL HALF AN HOUR BEFORE SHOWTIME. THIS IS WHEN THEY RELEASE THE UNCOLLECTED BOOKINGS. BUY YOUR TICKET THEN.
I think it should be alright to buy tickets at the last minute, because the first 10 minutes of showtime are usually ads and trailers.
So, here's hoping we are able to rectify the problem from now on.
Tell all your friends about this, SMS them, send emails, get the message through. Blog about it.
SPREAD THE WORD!
