    The crowd was excited to see the film. A hot crowd always makes for a more fun expereince in my opinion. Best of all the people who had already seen it didn't ruin the movie for the rest of us. The movie itself was, of course, very funny. The songs were in my head afterward.

    I've seen this movie dozens of times but was thrilled to have the opportunity to see it on the big screen (and not "edited for tv" for the first time in a while). So glad the group gave people who have somehow missed out on this gem the opportunity to see it as it's meant to be seen.

    I got to the Drafthouse at 7:00, and it was already packed. I'll have to remember to get there earlier for Fletch. Had a great time overall.

    We love the Drafthouse but Blazing Saddles was not as great as all the hype. But our real frustration is that it is really not an opportunity to "meet" anyone as the name meet-up implies. We would like to talk to other film buffs. The owner invited us all to the Grill in Dec but the music was well over 100 decibels so there was no talking possible.

    Theater was packed, crowd was cheerful (and knew the film well). First time I saw Blazing Saddles on a big screen!

    This was my first one... I was hoping for more of a socializing 'thing'... but it seemed folks just sort of sat with people they already knew.. no walking around and saying hi. Granted I don't know how to instigate that, but it would be fun for someone to 'lead' or ice break or something - or have an area to mingle freely before sitting down. I'll definitely go again though :)

    Such a good movie, I wish I could be there, but I'm traveling abroad next week. Hope to catch the next one.
