FREE Movie: Advance Screening of The Heat

20th Century Fox is having a special advance screening of their new film, THE HEAT, starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy and we're invited!!!! Please read the following information CAREFULLY if you plan to attend......

IMPORTANT POINT #1:
The advance screening is on Thursday, May 23 at 7:30PM at AMC Southpoint in Durham. While the movie does not start until 7:30, free screenings are first come, first served EVEN WITH A PASS. They purposely overbook the theater to ensure max capacity. Lines start forming at least 1.5 hours before. They start letting people in 1 hour ahead. Those at the end of the line will either not get in or have to sit in front row seats looking up at an uncomfortable angle. Please note: There is already another Meetup group with close to 50 attending so I advise getting there early.

IMPORTANT POINT #2:
To attend, each member MUST download a screening pass from Gofobo.com. (Please see download instructions below.)

TO DOWNLOAD A SCREENING PASS

==============================

1) Go to: http://www.gofobo.com/rsvp/

2) Enter RSVP Code: KIXRALXZPP

3) Print pass and attend screening (Each person will be allowed to print out a maximum of TWO admit-one passes). Passes can be emailed to yourself and printed at home. Please don't take one unless you really plan to attend. If you can't or are unsure, use the email option so you can email someone else in the group your pass who wants to attend, if you find you can't be there.

IMPORTANT POINT #3:

You cannot save seats at a screening. I will be in line by 6 pm. If you would like to sit with me/the group, please arrive early and let me know. If people are close by in line, we can usually all get a row or two together. But if you come later, you probably won't be able to sit with the group. I'm sorry but it's part of first come, first served thing with these screenings. Yes, you will have to stand in line but it's free.

About the movie....

Uptight FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn (Sandra Bullock) and foul-mouthed Boston cop Shannon Mullins (Melissa McCarthy) couldn’t be more incompatible.

    I thought the movie was excellent as well.. This film will make you laugh til you hurt. I thought they both had great chemistry. Some of the cursing in the script could have been eliminated but overall this was a good film,

    Didn't mean to scare everyone off from the free screening as typically the wait in line is only about 1/2 hour. Then there is ample time to chat, get snacks, etc. in the theater once seated. I just wanted to make it clear as some people don't realize there is a wait (in line and once seated) before the movie and that you have to arrive early or risk bad or no seats. Especially with 70+ of my fellow Meetup peeps coming from the Raleigh Movie Fans group.... it will be a full house.

    Looks like a good one and I really like Sandra Bullock but I will wait for a regular showing. Perhaps some others in the group will want to attend when we don't have to fight the mob and stand in long lines. Not my cup of tea. Sorry . . .

      I agree, Ed. The people who attend are fun moviegoers and the conversations are lively and interesting. The last one I attended a radio station was doing free giveaways.
