Movies Scheduled for the Week of 6/9 - 6/15

Greeting movie group! First we just want to thank everyone for using our DMS Facebook page to discuss issues that are concerning your free movie going experience. This is the correct forum for this sort of conversation that can not be broadcast on our Yahoo list.

Which brings us to the topic of today's sermon...uh..subject. There are many newbies here, so you "regulars" can skip ahead. These are FREE screening. That's why you are here. They are a gift, not a right. The studios are in no way obligated to invite us to what is normally a press screening. In order to get a good word out for their movies, they ask the public to view and share with their friends. We help them, by attending, politely thanking them, and giving our opinions to the reps after the screening. They ALWAYS give out more passes than there are seats. Some screenings are packed, others are not. It's a given that the blockbuster movies are going to be overbooked. You go with that in mind, that you may not be able to get in. It would be one thing if you paid for your seat, but you are not. The only thing you pay for is your time waiting. It's up to you whether that's worth taking that chance, or are you better off going to the $5 first of the day screening when it opens.

2nd issue. Cutting in line. The passes say 1rst come 1rst served. It's almost expected now that this policy will become more strictly enforced in the future. Especially for big named features. If your party isn't there at the same time, they will be sent to the end of the line. Don't say y'all have not be warned about this before. Nothing is worse than waiting for several hours thinking you are 50 people from the front, than finding yourself 150 behind. Saving space for your guest is normal, but not when you have 10 other people. It's just not cool nor fair to the others who put the time in line to wait and several people comes waltzing in whenever to be ahead of you. Y'all know of whom we speak...

OK...We are introducing a new moderator to the group. Meet Daina Moseley who will be co-captaining the moderator booth. She's usually at the beginning of the movie lines since she works 3rd shift during the night and never sleeps. So don't get confused when those "rejected" messages come from her. (Just do it right the first time so you won't get rejected, duh). Next week she will post the Sunday rant. (I did tell you that, Daina, right?). Please welcome her and be kind. damitdaina@hotmail.com
