More tickets for The Iron Giant 10-year reunion

Last week we posted about Asifa-Hollywood’s Iron Giant 10-Year Reunion. It sold out within 24 hours.

Now, a limited number of additional tickets are available for the reunion, because the event has been moved from Woodbury University to the Stephen J. Ross Theater on the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank – a much larger venue.

Here’s what you do if you want to attend: send an email to [email protected] with the number of guests and your guests’ names. You will then be given further instructions via email on purchasing tickets. Tickets are $10 for ASIFA-Hollywood members and $15 for non-members. Tickets are non-refundable.

The Iron Giant reunion is this Friday, October 23rd, at 7:30pm. Among the many artists expected is writer and director Brad Bird, background artist Anne Guenther, art director Alan Bodner, lead animator Steve Markowski, and artistic coordinator Scott Johnston. The panel will be moderated by animator Tom Sito.

Ticket holders are required to park in the Franklin parking structure, located at 4301 W. Olive Ave, Burbank, which is across the street from the Warner Bros. Studio Lot. At the parking structure, guests will be given an entrance pass, then directed across the street to Gate 2 for entrance onto the studio lot, and then to the theater. You must purchase tickets ahead of time to be included on the guest list, as Warner Bros. studio security requires a list of every person attending. In addition, all guests are required to show a valid government photo ID, in order to be admitted into the parking structure and onto the studio lot.

Due to the large turnout to this event, guests are advised you to arrive no later than 7:00 p.m., to insure that they have enough time to park and get to the theater before the program begins. Seats are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. For more information, visit

  • “Seats are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.” What is the point of tickets then? Sounds like another Milt Kahl Tribute disaster in the making.

  • The Iron Giant is new to us. We’ve been hiding in a bomb shelter for the last 10 years. Please forgive!

    Oh man oh man, I hope I get one. I even called my friend up and pointed her this. It would be so awesome to see both my favorite teach, Sito, and Brad Bird at a showing of Iron Giant, one of my fav films.

    GAH! When the event sold out, I made alternate plans for that evening!

    Well, it’s going to be a stellar event, and I hope someone gets it on tape for later viewing.

    Wow, this does sound like it could be another disaster!

    Someone just pointed out to me that the email announcing the change of location asked everyone to rsvp again by yesterday at 5pm. Plus it says “If ASIFA-Hollywood does not receive a response from you by then, it will be assumed that you will not be attending the event, and your seat(s) will be released. Please remember that tickets are non-refundable.”

    So even if you have a ticket it sounds like you might not be getting in unless you rsvp’d to that email…

    I had the same problem as you, Dave. I just came back from Ottawa to a mountain of unread emails and freaked out when I saw the re-RSVP email. I’ve emailed Antran, so we’ll see if I can still get my ticket!

  • Lance

    Can’t wait. Great to see the films designer Alan Bodner on the panel. Where’s animation director Tony Fucile? I hope he makes a surprise showing.

    I RSVP’d the first time, and bought a ticket .. I re-RSVP’d the same day I got the change-of-venue e-mail. But, thanks to production deadlines at work, I’ve learned that I can’t leave before 6 PM today. -_-

    The thought of having to slog all the way across the Valley at the height of rush hour (from Calabasas to Burbank), AND deal with WB gate security, only to find that half the people who showed up before I did are in a ‘stand-by’ line, anyway .. kinda dulls my enthusiasm.

    I’ve met most of the IRON GIANT crew at other events, over the years (including Brad Bird, a couple of times) .. so, no big loss, personally .. but I’m sure this will still be a great event.

    Ok I take it back, this evening was anything but a disaster. Thanks to everyone who helped put it on!
