MickCollins: I went to the AMC River East in Chicago to watch a movie called "The Goods" with Jeremy Piven. Piven came into the theater and stood next to my aisle for a bit. My sister in law took a picture. He was a wee man.

Gunderson: Have you ever laughed so hard, you had black coffee come out your nostrils?
CSB Time: In college my buddy worked at the local theater. One day he got free tickets for a press screening of a movie. There were a handful of seats roped off near the back of the theater and he INSISTED we sit right behind those seats. Ok, his tickets, his rules I guess.The movie we were "treated" to was Ishtar, perhaps the worst film ever made with a real budget and real stars. About 5-10 minutes in to the movie, through the back door, come the VIPs. We are sitting right behind Warren Beatty and Dustin Hoffman. (The stars of the Ishtar)Obviously the movie was a stinker. People in the crowd (who got FREE tickets) were getting up and leaving, with their coats. It was so bad you had to feel sorry for the guys.Dustin Hoffman just sat there, not looking at the screen, with his face in his hand. Warren Beatty got up and paced up and down the aisle changing direction every time one of the big laugh lines fell flat. (crickets).I can laugh now, but at the time I really felt horrible for these guys. The pain they were in was so extreme we felt it to. (sitting through that movie didn't help reduce the pain either). We stayed for the whole thing because we couldn't bear to kick them while they were down.
ManateeGag: RDJ gave someone in NYC the shocker?
BowtoMogul: spacemanjones: Ever see a man throw his own shoe!?!Yes, oncePretty sure you meant:"Get the hell outta here! Ever see a guy say good-bye to a shoe?"/second favorite episode of the simpsons
Flint Ironstag: I did see Serenity with Summer Glau and Joss Whedon sitting a few rows behind me. Does that count?
CSB Time II :
When the Aristocrats came out the only theater to show it was the local art theater. Opening night the theater was pretty full, mostly full of season pass holders and theater supporters. This is in "snooty" Fairfield county and The Aristocrats is NOT what they were expecting. 8*)By about 30 minutes in the crowd was at about half of what it started. By the end it was at maybe 33%.
spacemanjones: BowtoMogul: spacemanjones: Ever see a man throw his own shoe!?!Yes, oncePretty sure you meant:"Get the hell outta here! Ever see a guy say good-bye to a shoe?"/second favorite episode of the simpsonsYes, I did. Thanks. I as close.Gotta know, if thats 2, what #1?
dryknife: He wasn't the star but Paul Reubens sat behind me in a theater once.
