I moved from NYC to LA in October, 2003. And though I still think NYC is the greatest city in the world, I'm truly loving life here in the City of Angels. I'm a writer, reader, and occasional picture-taker.

Mea Culpa

Following a comment Warren left on my post about the Variety Screening Series, I sent an email to them to clarify if this was a series for Variety subscribers only, or if it was open to the public. I received the following "official" response:

Joel,
Actually, our Series is not for Variety subscribers, it is for invited Guild members only. We have sent out invitations as such and check guild cards at the door.

Unfortunately, whoever sent the link and told you this was an open screening to Subscribers was mistaken. While we sometimes have a few extra seats available for uninvited guests, Munich will have heavy security at the studio's request and all names will be checked against our original invitation list.

I apologize for any confusion and thank you for your interest in our Series.

Best,

K

Thus, I'm not going to say you won't be able to get in anyway, but I'm not going to be going, and I apologize to you all for any confusion I caused. I'll be updating the other post to reflect the appropriate information.

Thanks for the update. You'll save me a trip down to Arclight. Guess I really need to work at getting my guild card.

You owe us all a free movie when you get your guild card.

Luckily I hadn't signed up for Munich. It would have sucked to get dissed at the door, although if they asked me for my guild card I would immediately said that Steve told me I was on the list.
