G.I. JOE: RETALIATION (Free Advanced Screening)

When Cobra spy Zartan has most of the Joes assassinated, the remaining Joes band together to strike back.

I was just contacted by someone from Paramount Pictures.  She has invited us to attend the Advanced Screening of G.I. Joe (free).  She is sending me 40-50 passes.  This is in lieu of April 7 meetup.

    I really appreciate Nana for sharing this with all of us... I know that the process was hectic sis, and that preparation all the way up until the actual day, was a head ache.. BUT, it turned out wonderfully. Everyone had a great time, we socialized, shared a few laughs, took some pics and were all in good company.. Thank you again for that.

    I honestly don't know what to expect. I have moved people to "not attending" and yet they suddenly appear to attend. I wash my hands of this. Whoever comes and find me and pick up passes will have one. If I run out and you are still coming . . . I simply don't know what to say. I hope everyone is able to attend. See you at the movies!

    March 25, 2013

    • Tracey

      We have an automatic wait list in place, whenever a member changes their RSVP to not attending, the next person on the wait list moves up. Let's all remain positive that we'll have an enjoyable evening tomorrow, after all the purpose is to meetup and have fun. Thanks for all your hard work organizing this event Nana. Now rest :-)

I look forward to seeing you tomorrow and meeting the rest of a cool group of Joe's lol!!! Is everybody tatted up and ready to Roc with Bruce, DeRay, Ryan and the rest of the Joe's? Lol thanks again Nana see ya tomorrow!!!!

      thank you for changing my RSVP. Unfortunately, I am still not receiving updates via email but, will try and check the page as often as possible. I hope to arrive by 5pm.

    Hi all, for those of you writing me now saying you were once attending but now no longer that is because i DID NOT hear from you. I begged and pleaded with everyone to please let me know something by Friday so I can invite the people on the waitlist. Those of you coming to pick up your stuff Monday, I will see you then and thank you in advance. Those of you who told me that you are not able to come, I will be in line on Tuesday of the event. You will have to find me in line and pick up your passes from me (one per person - no guests are invited). I plan on being there around 4 p.m. They will start letting people in at 6:15. See you at the movies!

    1 · March 24, 2013

    • Charlette ".

      I was receiving updates and then it stopped. I did not change anything in my settings. So, I was not aware of changes until I checked the page. I still don't know how to turn the updates back on. My screen shows the "notify me about replies" box checked. So, what more can I do to receive notifications?

    Not sure if anyone knows this but: if by chance you are not able to receive a free pass with the meetup group, ShowPlace ICON will also be having an exclusive advanced screening of this movie at 8:00pm the same day March 26 only to VIP members. This is only if you have a VIP showplace icon card & it too is first come first serve. Hope this helps.

      Thanks for posting this. I called Icon yesterday and the person I spoke with mentioned that the 8pm screening is normal price, it's just that you will see it before its officially released

      That's correct, forgot to mention that as well. Thanks :)

    Hello all. Today I received a large box containing passes as well as promotional items such as t-shirts, can holders, posters, decals, with G.I. Joe logos. I am going to hand these out starting tomorrow and each day until Friday from 12 noon to 1 p.m. I work in the Sears Tower and I will be sitting at a table outside the Corner Bakery (but still in the building) with the "meetup" sign on my table. I strongly urge you to pick them up as I do not wish to carry them to the movie theater on Tuesday (day of the movie). I did note, however, on the passes, that passes do not guarantee a seat. So, please please please arrive as early as possible to the movie on Tuesday. I will be there by 4:45.

    Where do we get pick the tickets up from or do we get them at the event?

  • kismet2013

    Thanks Nana for the RSVP change.., I will do my best to make it to your location on Monday.. It was great how you arranged this and made it available for EVERYONE to have a chance to go, even opening it to waitlisters (it's a words*) as well... very fair

    Hi, I think there was a misunderstanding on my part. I originally rsvp'd and thought I could pick up the tickets the day-of. I just noticed the email that said I was removed from the list.

    I am dealing with many issues with many people so a little patience will go a long way. I will have the passes with me while I am on line at the theater. You can pick it up from me there on Tuesday. Thank you.

      Thank U Nana, if you will be available on Monday, I can pick up pass from you. I work in the loop area so Sears Tower not that far from me. Just let me know, I was on waiting list so I just appreciate being able to get a ticket

    Hi all, you may note that I have removed RSVPs (ones I did not hear from) and moved up the waitlist so you are all currently to attend. I will once again next Monday pass out the passes and goodies from 12 to 1 in my building. If you can, please stop by and pick these up. I will NOT have the goodies with me on Tuesday only the passes. Thanks all!

    1 · March 22, 2013

  • Lisa M.

    Hi I don't work in the loop so I won't be able to meet you during the designated time frame. Will the pick up be anywhere or can we simply get then the evening of the movie? Please confirm. Thanks!!

    A big "Thank You" to those who stopped by and picked up your passes as well as the goodies. A big "Thank You" to those who let me know your situation so that I can make other arrangements. Now I have a big request. If you are not able to make the screening, please update your RSVP and give the people on the waitlist a chance. I very much appreciate it.

    I had one person come and pick up the pass, etc. from this group today. If I do not hear from you and you don't pick up your stuff by this Friday, I will start offering them to the people on the waitlist as well as members of my own group. I think that is only fair.

      Is it possible for a guest to waitlist for a ticket? I didn't realize at the time of signing up that guests couldn't attend. If not, someone else can take my spot, and I'll change my RSVP to not attending :)

      Do we need to pick them up beforehand, or can we also get them the night of the movie?

      March 17, 2013

    • Tracey

      We're checking to see if we can leave the passes with the Customer Service Desk, if so, we'll have them in an envelope (with CBPSN on it) and you can pick up your pass when you get to the theatre. Stay tuned, we'll keep you posted. Thanks
