Idiots at New Line Cinema

Warning: If you work for New Line Cinema, this may be about you... since this is a real-life situation.

I was lucky enough to receive advanced screening passes for Hairspray at the AMC in Rancho Cucamonga at 7:30 p.m. on July 16, 2007. We got there at 6:00 p.m. to go stand in line, but found that there were already two line for hairstylists who got their advanced screening passes from Sebastian, and those who got them elsewhere (like me).

Long story short, they "invited" 500 people to the showing but only booked a 214-person theater. Sebastian hairstylists had preference, we didn't get in, and the idiots that were running the event didn't have the decency to tell us about the situation until AFTER the movie was supposed to start. People were standing in line for HOURS for this thing!

The moral of this story: Beware of New Line Cinema and their fake advanced screening passes! New Line Cinema sucks.
