The Sex and the City movie premiere caused such an uproar in New York City on Tuesday that New Line Cinema and the events organizers ran out of seats for viewers.
A source tells The New York Post, "The movie studio gave out way more promotional tickets than could fit in the orchestra. Radio City managers told the New Line people, 'You can solve this by opening up the mezzanines, which have 2,700 more seats' - but they wouldn't do it."
However, New Line Cinema executives are quick to disagree: "It was Radio City Music Hall making that decision. They took control of the fan line. They turned the fans away."
After the venue's 6,000-person capacity was filled, 500 ticket holders were escorted to a local theatre to view the movie. The remaining fans were all given free vouchers to check out the movie this Friday when it opens nationwide.
