I try to put a spin on it and think of it as a challenge. To be honest my favorite part of these screenings and premieres is the rush of the line, wondering how many people will be there already, if you're early enough, how many people they'll let in, if you'll make. It's my super sad mini adventure for the day. Thanks for listening to what I said. Hopefully it was constructive and you can see it in a positive light.

One last thing: A reminder that Campus Circle and every other organization that is great enough to try and get premieres and screenings out to us regular folk for free (sometimes with bonus refreshments) make no promises and no guarantees. They present an opportunity for you. It's up to you to make it happen. Sometimes things don't work out because you don't get their early enough, or yea they have WAY fewer tickets than passes they send out. It sucks when you have to wait and get turned away (especially when you pay all day for parking), but it comes with the territory. Don't feel entitled or like they're obligated to appease you.

Also, I don't understand why some people are so polite to line cutters. When an usher, theater personal, security, etc. come and tell people to form a single line or to stand up against the wall when there's a group for 10 people spilling into the sidewalk or hallway, why do you scoot down to make room for them to stand by the wall when 9 of them just cut in front to the person in front of you?!! I'm not saying people need to yell or start fights, but don't silently let people take advantage of you. IF you say something an nothing happens, oh well...at least you gave it a shot right? What's the worse that can happen? Nothing. But I have called people on it before and guilted them or made them uncomfortable enough to leave. Dirty looks and evil stares...they work wonders!!

I always think it'd be nice for the people at the front of the line to step up and help a little. Usually those people are the regulars, they've been screwed in the past and I'm sure they will at some point in the future. I know I've tried handing out post-it notes with numbers on them before, even giving people a couple extra if they were waiting for a friend or someone ran to the bathroom or for food. The problem is, people have to be willing to do it. If you don't speak up when you're there or constructively try to come up with a solution, you don't really have a right to come on here and complain about it. Not everyone is going to solve your problems.

I'd also like to point out, because I hear people complain about this a lot...It's not very practical for Campus Circle (or any other screening organization) to have an "employee" stand out there all day just to manage line cutters. Some people start lining up at 9 am! That'd be ridiculous to pay someone to stand there all day...or even worse, NOT pay them to. We all need to step up and take responsibility for ourselves and what we'd like to see happen in line. If someone cuts in front of you, say something right away, don't expect people running the show to have time to listen to your problems, they're busy and stressed. Help out your fellow line waiters. I hate it when everyone will silently complain, but when it comes down to actually saying something to cutters, only one person speaks up and no one backs them up...power in numbers!

I had the chance to go to the Terminator Salvation premiere at Grauman's a couple weeks ago. I got in line around 1:00 and was 5th in line. In the last hour and a half tons of people had cut in front of me...I was there alone. I had mentioned something to one of the security guys and had me point them out. He told me that when it came time to handing out tickets, these people would not get theirs. Instead they ALL got tickets and they stopped handing them out at the person right in front of me. I then had to wait another 30 minutes just to see if they'd have more tickets for people. I stood in line for 6 hours and was number 5 when it started. But the time I got my ticket I was number 23...18 people had joined the 2 couples that held their spots. I've had my share of bad lines stories, but that was ridiculous!

WHAT?! Where did you guys get Star Trek screenings? I've been looking all over online and at my special sites I go to and have found NOTHING. This is the first I've seen for it. BTW WOLVERINE was awesome. I got picks with SO many celebrities and saw even more!
