Here’s the line at 5:50 p.m., down Randolph St.
These folks, Ellie and Charlie Tewksbury, arrived at 3:10 p.m. to claim their rightful seats, 4th row back from stage left.
Unfortunately, they were second in line, since Roch and Laurie Ducey arrived at 3:00 p.m.:
Luckily, there were no fights, since the Duceys like an aisle seat toward the back on the right side.
Astoundingly, Laurie has attended every single movie at every single Ebertfest. So, she is tied for the record, at least. Are there any others who want to step forward and challenge Laurie for the crown?
