"Harry Potter" and "Aliens" / "The Terminator" double feature

We went to see "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2" this morning...what an incredible movie!!! And me, not someone whose been onboard for the entire franchise! Very dramatic, exciting, and just plain brilliant. Make sure you bring kleenex when you go!

We just scored tickets to a double feature screening I wouldn't miss for THE WORLD!! "The Terminator" is first up but the main attraction will be the 25th Anniversary screening of "Aliens" plus a Q&A with actors Michael Biehn, Lance Henriksen, Jenette Goldstein, Mark Rolston and Ricco Ross!!! This screening has been sold out for several weeks. Apparently everything went within an hour of going up online.

So what I mean by 'scored' is this; we met a guy at the screening "Beetlejuice" who we struck up a conversation with. Turned out he was the organizer of this "Aliens" event of which we were eager to hear more. He gave us his card and said he looked forward to seeing us there. Due tothe whole In Sync job opportunity, I completely lost track of checking on the schedule for the New Beverly Cinema (where the screening will take place) that tickets going on sale happened without my knowing.

Luckily, I still had that guy's card and, reading that additional tickets would be available later, decided to go right to the source and call him up about possibly getting two of those rogue seats. He remembered us, stating that he had a block of tickets for himself outside of what the theater did. Two friends of his had to cancel and he offered them to Rebecca and I. Needless to say I was completely overjoyed!

Can't wait, extremely excited, full report will follow!!
