kronus said: The theatre for Hancock collected all cellphones and anything that had a screen, even old black and white ipods, and put them in manila envelopes. There was a guy with a metal detector wand. Some people got in with phones by playing dumb, but then pulled them out in the theatre after they sat down and were told to go back out and give them up. Ironically, there were these guys after the movie that whipped laptops from somewhere and another guy had a large device with a screen I saw glowing, maybe blackberry/iphone like. Initially I thought "press/critic?" but I asked the wand guy about the laptop dudes at the end when we were getting phones back, and he said that they weren't as far as he knew and that they tried their best to keep all devices out. How these guys got thru, or WHY they whipped out a laptop right after the movie is a mystery.where are you? I don't think I've ever been to a screening where they actually went thru with the phone removal threat i see on all passes.
Did anyone else have problems with Film Metro last night? I tried to sign in and the site informed me that my e-mail and password did not match, which is of course not true. I have been using that same password and e-mail for a couple of years now on that website. Just wondering if it was only me or is the website messed up for everyone. It was very upsetting because I stayed up so late to get tickets for a screening that was going up at 1:00 in the morning and it was a waste of time.
I also had the same problems with FilmMetro. I tried this morning and had the same problem. I hit reload a few times and finally was able to logon.
A few weeks ago, the problem I had with them is that they released tix a few days earlier than the date stated they would be available. I even emailed them and I got an auto-reply stating they received the email, but they never emailed me back. Oh well. You win some, you lose some.
I can dig that Luv, with film Metro its always been hit or miss, fortunatly it more hits than misses. I grabbed tics for Meet Dave, and the Rocker last night. I don't live in one of the favored cities though, so I miss out on a lot of screenings. Sometimes I wish I lived in Cali or Florida, they seem to get a whole lot of free screenings.

TBE...Imagine the amount of people in these dense areas that hit the site trying to sign up for them Maybe some screenings are better than never getting in because of all the Cali people hitting it at once Just an idea...
Well, I got a movie screening pass from Volition for the Mummy this coming Tuesday. On the pass, it is the wrong theater. I'm in Boston and they sent me a pass for Buckland Hills in CT. Should I just go to the Boston theater and said that I got the wrong pass and try my luck?
Edit: just received an email from Volition that I'm not the only one. Seems like the people from Hartford have the Boston passes and vice versa. hehhe
I'm kind of upset, I reserved two passes to "the hangover" in LV with an RSVP code on gofobo and I went to print them out tonight and they weren't in my gofobo account!!!! I never cancelled the RSVP and I have the confirmation email. I called support but it was after 5pm, so I missed out eventhogh I got ready to go see the movie. Anyone else have this happen with gofobo??

We received the following letter : "Dear Sir/Madam: We see that unauthorized codes for HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE have been posted illegally on your site. These codes had yet to be distributed to the intended audience of children for this film. These codes were obtained illegally and we will consider legal action against your company if you continue to post unauthorized codes. Inform your users that we will invalidate any codes that were obtained improperly and they will not be admitted to these screenings.
Then this was posted today:
All Harry Potter codes recently posted by Steve, Katie, and Steven on Friday June 26 and Saturday June 27 have all been invalidated and have been removed from the Gofobo system and scanners. However, individual GoFoBo accounts will still say 'Registered' - but if these passes are presented at the screenings, the barcode scanners will reject them because those codes will not be recogized. Invalidated/Rejected code pass holders will not be admitted to screenings. Again, if the barcode scanners cannot read or rejects the code on your pass, you will not be allowed into the screening even if you have a physical pass.
