The cast will be represented by Richard, Lee, Orlando and Luke. Fingers crossed the theater doesn't incinerate from that much hotness on one stage ;-).

I prevail upon my better sibs to make this link clickable. Thanks!

It's really easy to make a link clickable. You just have to put the following code in front of the link: [*url]link to story or article goes here[*/url] (just remove the astericks or else it won't work) Smile

The topic is confusing because it says you can get them now, but just read the story... the instructions are very clear. You click the link in the story at 10am EST on Friday to grab passes. You're going to have to be QUICK though, so I'd start hitting refresh on that page around 9:55 until it's live. Good luck! I'd be there myself but I have family flying in that night, so I'll be seeing the film Monday the 8th instead.

Thanks -- twice, QoE [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm afraid I'm one of those people who will only master some technical intricacy on the 10th or 11th attempt. Perhaps if I have the how-to tattooed inside my wrist to keep it close at hand ....

Overbooked! [In reply to] Can't Post

Interesting it notes the event will be overbooked so if you are lucky enough to score a ticket you still might not get in.
Would hate to be one if the people who gets turned away.

Sounds familiar.

I'm a few days behind on the calendar though, it was not until later this afternoon I realized, gee that's tomorrow at 10 a.m.

Actually, *all* pre-release screenings are overbooked - no seat is guaranteed unless you're a member of the reviewing press.

Still wish I could go to this, but it seems wrong to leave my family after they've flown in from California that night to see me. Luckily, it's only three more days until I get to see the film, so that's okay :)

thanks I got to the R.S.V.P. round [In reply to] Can't Post

Nusilver,

sorry you cannot attend.

I haven't been to a screening since Drag me to Hell (and that was a free pass handout rather than these online lotteries now), but overbooking makes sense.

In any case, I was fast enough on the draw to make it into the R.S.V.P.

Unfortunately you cannot bring cell phones into the theatre so I am leaving mine home.

Just a heads up, if Hero Complex does this again in more cities,
You have to create an account with them through Eventbrite (log in/password and they want address & email.)

awesome. have fun! and don't worry about leaving your cell phone at home. they're not going to keep anybody who needs a phone from having it on their person, they're just going to insist you turn it off when you get there. of course, if you don't need it, more power to you! cell phones do not belong in movie theaters anyway.

Got a ticket [In reply to] Can't Post

I managed to snag a ticket. Because of the overbooking, I'm going to head in early right after I get out of class.

turns out, i'm coming! [In reply to] Can't Post

As it turns out, I will be there after all. A friend of mine managed to grab tickets for him + 1, and then he told me today that he got a HUGE job offer in California and will be leaving at the end of the month. So, I'll go to the 11th screening/QA and my wife will pick up my family from the airport. I've already told my sister, she understands. A happy coincidence.

Since evidence can be adduced and interpreted to corroborate a virtually limitless array of world views, the human challenge is to engage that world view or set of perspectives which brings forth the most valuable, life-enhancing consequences.

congrats, I am not going after all... [In reply to] Can't Post

that's cool, it turns out I am not. I've been home with an arthritis attack and am only going back to work tomorrow (Wednesday.)

NO way I'll be able to last a 20 hour day with my commute.

Oh, just got an email from LATimes, you're right about the phone nusilver.

Also only Richard and Lee are attending the Q&A now, Orlando and Luke are unavailable.

Have a great time!

... on the other side of tomorrow...
