Thursday November 19th my sister and I rented out an entire theatre from Harkins to view the Twilight New Moon saga. It was a crazy whim we got when others had rented one out and sold the entire theatre out. - 411 and seats. We completely sold out within 2 weeks. Charging $10 a seat covered the rental fee and left us with about $150 to play with. We bought and got prizes donated and had a raffle for 16 prizes.
That night I had to greet folks in the lobby while Tammy was inside helping people find their seats. Harkins was so great to us, we were able to get into the theatre by 7:45pm and label the seats. Then, we started letting people in about 8pm. Show started at 9.
Everyone who came was so great, and thankful that we did it. They walked past the lines of people waiting for the midnight release of the movie and loved it. I, myself, felt like quite the VIP. They all want us to do it for Eclipse. We might! I have a feeling the companies who got wind of us might not let it happen. They might buy all the theatres out before us lay folk get a chance. Either way, it was tons of fun to watch a movie with about 400 of my friends... LOL I only knew a handful of them.
This is my first attempt at blogging. I will probably change it several times before I am happy. Consider this my amateur attempt.

Most recent news for our family or at least me, is that Brittany is an Oompa Loompa in the community presentation of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Several kiddos from our ward are in the show. Brian is over there right now helping with the Saturday afternoon production. I have tickets to view the Monday night show. Cannot wait.
