I'm headed to Boston, mainly to take a ride and see the big city, and we'll screen bedtime Stories. How often do you go to the screenings? I do so rarely.

I just came back from three screenings. It is a three hour drive one-way so we try to get in a bunch if we can. We actually got a hotel room and stayed overnight. We saw 'Gran Torino', 'Seven Pounds', and 'The Tale of Despereaux'.

Most screenings I go to are very lightly attended. We were the only ones there for Despereaux and there were only a couple of people there for the other ones.

We picked up the movie from the depot as well and that will help pay for the gas. We actually had a little time left over and finished up our Christmas shopping, too ;)

I enjoyed it but it was sad and slow.

I go fairly often but have to wait for the press screenings. I'll see maybe four or five titles a month that way. Could see more if there were more hours in the day.

We go to the Seattle screenings fairly often, as it's only a little over an hour from our place. Most often, the studios use one of the downtown multiplexes and a (250 seat) screening room at the University of Washington.

We go to maybe 2 or 3 a year, usually for big releases like Harry Potter, etc.
Most are held at a screening room which is over and hour away, so it has to be worth the time and gas.

We went to one so far in the 8 1/2 years we have had our theater. The only reason we went to that one was because my Paramount booker was going to be there checking people in. The screenings are held about 2 1/2 hours away from us, otherwise we might go more.

I used to go to about five or six a year when they were shown in San Rafael-about four hours from here. There were never very many people in attendance. Then, some distributors stopped S.F. screenings altogether and others moved them into the city. I don't like driving and parking in San Francisco, so haven't gone to any in a couple years.

My wife several times a year. Mostly around the holidays to see what to pick from. Since our booker also goes to the screenings it is a good oportunity to get some face time with him.

We are lucky the screening room is only 45 minutes from us.
