Because I'm a screenwriter, I'm in the Writers Guild, and this means LOTS of free screenings during fall and winter, better known as "awards season." We not only get to see all the big holiday movies, but also all of the good movies that came out during the year, which are screened again. They're shown in really great theaters or screening rooms, with no ads and no lining up for tickets (no popcorn though). Also, you're guaranteed to be with an enthusiastic, appreciative crowd.
Over the past couple of weeks and in the next couple of weeks, I'll be seeing, hope to see or have seen the following:
A Serious Man
Where the Wild Things Are
Up in the Air
The Fantastic Mr. Fox
(500) Days of Summer
The Blind Side
The Lovely Bones
The Hurt Locker
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
This means seeing multiple movies during the week, or sometimes even the same day. It's hard being a movie fanatic...
