Welcoming Film Festival Goers with Discounts to Area Attractions

Philly Film Festival 2006From March 30 through April 11, The Philadelphia Film Festival will return to University City, where nearly 50% of the programming will be presented at The Bridge (40th and Walnut Streets), International House Philadelphia (3701 Chestnut Street) and The Cinema at Penn (3925 Walnut Street).  With estimated attendance figures reaching 65,000, University City will be teeming with unprecedented activity and excitement, all centered on the Film Festival’s 300 films from 50 countries.

Those who purchase tickets to a film during the festival will be encouraged to visit University City.  As an extra incentive, University Square, Penn’s shopping and dining district and the University City District (UCD) are offering 20% off purchases at 19 diverse University City restaurants (tax, alcohol and gratuity excluded), retailers and arts organizations.  Ticket holders must present their stub or festival pass, and request the 20% Film Festival discount at the time of purchase. The discounts are valid during the length of festival from March 30 through April 11. In addition, visitors can park at a discounted rate of $5 during the festival—from 5 p.m.-midnight—at the garage at 38th and Walnut Streets.  Validation is available at all screening locations in University City. 

See www.upenn.edu/almanac/volumes/v52/n27/aprcal06.html#ff for a list of the participating establishments.
