Yesterday I got a press release announcing more guests for the Ben Hur screening, the addition of some short films and this:
Due to scheduling conflicts, Oliver Stone’s “Untold History of the United States” will no longer screen at the 2011 New York Film Festival. We are, however, pleased to announce that Oliver Stone will still be appearing at NYFF to present a 25th Anniversary screening of SALVADOR, a film that burst onto the American film scene with a force that immediately established Stone as an artist to be reckoned with. For more information, please go to http://www.filmlinc.com/films/on-sale/25th-anniversary-screening-of-salvador.
For me this is a major bummer since I bought some tickets to go and really want to see it. While Salvador is one of my favorite Stone films it's a film I've seen too many times. It's also shown up in several retrospectives recently so I don't need or want to see it again.
No word on refunds or exchanges.
