Hey guys,
Im going to be seeing Marketa and Glen perform songs from the independent film called "Once" this wednesday if anyone is familar...Its a musical that came out about a year ago and has been in small indy theaters if you are familiar...

Anyway, I would really like to take my big lenses and camera because i have rather good seats into the Orpheum theater in Boston...Has anyone ever tried this not being a paid photographer or press photographer? Did they get kicked out or spoken to? Im just wondering, its not a huge venue but you know how security is these days...


I shoot Canon, I have some bodies, some lenses,and some lights. Photography is about the image not the L's that get you there. Though, feel free to send me your L's ;)

Call the Orpheum. It seems like most venues are allowing point and shoot cameras these day but bring out a professional lens and you get stopped.

i'd say typically that a DSLR w/ big lens is not allowed...they do seem to be lenient w/ P&S cameras these days...a few years ago, i had front row tickets for wilco but couldn't bring in my Elph. they made me take the battery out.

however, i think security has either gotten lax, or doesn't care, as the last two times i was there (kings of leon; morrissey) i saw two different people w/o photo passes and DSLRs. (external link)
