I'll be there next month, but they aernt showing anything that I would want to see. Sounds like a cool theater, do they serve alcohol there? Wine?
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

My only fear is that the audience is gonna ruin it for me.

I got to see it a couple times during it's theatrical run, of course, but this i a completely different beast entirely. I'd like to think it will be appreciative, responsive fans having a blast seeing this movie, in a seminal location, projected on celluloid again. But it's a free screening.... so I expect the audience PTA described at the test screening on the audio commentary.

Only worse.

Though, if I don't let paranoia enter th equation, this is very, very appealing. If only the free Sonic Youth show, the Jon Brion show, and the Inland Empire (with guests!) screening weren't competing for my fanboy attention.

Now, you tell me I can see Hard Eight in a theater again and I'll be the first in line.

Actually, that reminds me of something...

When I was in high school, a local theater in my small town got the idea to do midnight screenings. It was a fine experiment, they played the best of the midnight standards.... I saw shitty prints of A Clockwork Orange and The Shining... but in my town, seeing prints of these at all was quite a feast.

Well, one week they booked Reservoir Dogs and it brought out a shit load of bro's. Lots of backwards caps and high fives and all the other stereotypes. Bunch of assholes, magnified by the fact that I'm in high school, so I hate these folks even more.

So the projectionist comes out fifteen minutes before the film starts and says, due to a mix up and the inability to secure Reservoir Dogs, they'd be showing Jackie Brown instead. This place is packed and their pissed. In a theater for nearly 300 people, everyone left except for about 12.

They didn't concede and make a nit out of it anyway, they left... got their money back and took off.

Now, this is back in 2000... maybe 1999... so the idea of Jackie Brown theatrically is still pretty fresh and not as novel, I guess. Not that they'd stay now, either. I'd seen it a couple times during it's original run, so it wasn't that novel to me, either... BUT...the idea of all these assholes leaving and watching Jackie Brown in a theater, relatively privately was a pretty novel idea. I stayed and had a blast.

Yeah, so it's like if everyone showed up for the Boogie Nights screening and they showed Hard Eight instead...  kind of.

Never mind... just wanted to tell that story.
Maybe every day is Saturday morning.

PTA was there. But I didn't go to the VIP thing or anything so I didn't get to meet him.

It was just fantastic. Dewars Whiskey was sponsering it so they handed alot of free dewars crap. I got a free shot glass, a baseball, a cup holder, and a refrigerator bag to put alcohol. Since I had the VIP pass we had a special seating crossed off for us and the VIP's got a limited edition poster. It's really nice. They actually had two. I got the other one of rollergirl for 20 bucks. I'll try and find a picture for you guys. For an hour before the movie started there was a woman on the sidelines screaming that they took her husband and kidnapped him to make him watch the movie. Luckily They showed the film on an inflatiable screen which fell down right before the film was about to show, also luckily they brought it back up again. I sneaked behind the truck where they had a huge projector before it started to get my poster signed by PTA, who was gracious enough to sign it. 7 seconds of my life was spent making small talk with Paul, as he signed it, Mya right next to him. I was wearing a polyester green shirt as well as some bad 70's pants. Ghostboy, you should have gotten something signed. There were a small amount of people and you didn't have to be a VIP to have paul sign something.

I also got interviewed for a TV channel that runs on Direct TV called Reels channel since aparently I looked like a hard core fan. The best part was watching it on a big screen, since it was my first time seeing it on the big screen. There were no bros, assholes, "cool guys" or whatever you call them to ruin the picture, so if john had come if he in fact did, it wouldn't have been a bad experience. The worse it got, I could say was people cheered every time a character was introduced and that wasn't so bad. It was actually quite magical because you could drive up and down sherman way, which I did and see where they shot the opening shot, the donut shop scene, and the limo scene. They showed trailers of roller disco movies before the film. The other guests in attendence were Harry Knowles, who is bigger than I expected and was in a weelchair and Eli Roth. There was a booth, where they were selling the  in which you could get a picture of Mark Walburg's prosthetic dick

Then there was the afterparty, in which people from the porn industry, Eli Roth, Harry Knowles, and other Hollywood people mingled and "networked" and no one really started dancing until 1:00AM when most had gotten off the dance floor who didn't want to dance and people like me, actually did. So, overall, a really special night that I will remember for a long time. Mac, since you live in LA county, you really fucking missed out man.

Anyway, anyone else go other than GB and me?

i really wanted to go but was on a trip.  that's really cool to hear, silias.  ive ventured around that area before, and it's just so cool how so much of boogie nights was filmed in spots right next door to each other.  in fact, magnolia too.  the gas station/solomon & solomon store is right down the street from hot traxx.  i even have a photo of me in the doughnut shop.  geek.
