No room at the Pacino

Al Pacino was left without a seat at the premiere of his own movie after a ticket mix-up by organisers.

The legendary actor was stunned when he arrived at the Venice Film Festival screening of 'The Merchant of Venice' only to discover there was nowhere for him to sit.

The problem occurred when a computer glitch caused 200 too many premiere tickets to be issued.

Organisers eventually found Pacino, who plays Shylock in the Shakespeare adaptation, a seat several rows from the front.

However, the blunder caused a massive 70-minute delay in the festival's tight schedule, which resulted in the premiere of Johnny Depp's new movie, 'Finding Neverland', being held up until 2am.

'The Merchant of Venice' co-producer Michael Lionello Cowan was so furious at the gaffe he has vowed never to return to the Italian festival.

He fumed to the country's La Nuova newspaper: "In my entire life as a producer I've never seen anything like this at a festival, and for this reason I'm never coming back to Venice."

Other stars attending the prestigious film festival include Nicole Kidman, Scarlett Johansson and Quentin Tarantino.
