Have you ever wondered how people get into those test screenings that studios hold during the post-production process? Have you ever wondered what happens inside of the afore mentioned screenings?

Monday came, and I got to the theater, and was disappointed by what I saw. Yes, the screening was still going on, but there was a very small turnout. At 5:30, those who had shown up seemed to be mainly the friends and family of the students involved in organizing it. I got myself a seat in the middle towards the front of the auditorium and watched the film.
