DSC Exclusive: A private screening of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey"

To be honest, this is my choice as I'm a great fan of "The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy" .. So "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" was for me a must to see movie at the cinema and I did ... I wouldn't mind seeing it again and again :)

    Thank you Otto - for organising and also for the invitation. I REALLY wanted to watch this movie - and also finally get to meet everyone. HOWEVER, I shall be Dxb Academic City until just after 7pm...I don't think I'll be able to manage to get to the Marina in time. I'll just have to wait for the next possible event...apologies for the cancellation but I hope someone else can take my seat and enjoy the evening. Look forward to meeting you...eventually!

    I'm a fan of the LOTR series and was waiting for the release of this movie. The experience was ruined for me because of chatty moviegoers who were more interested in talking loudly than watching the movie. The private screening sounds a like a great second chance at enjoying this movie at a theater-like environment. Sweet idea :)
