Most of you are on my list I think, but.. here is the email I just sent out.

I am sad to report that AMC has decided to end their agreement with SF MovieBears stating corporate policy on discount passes.

What this means for SF MovieBears and you!

SF MovieBears can no longer offer $7.00 tickets for movies during the films first week of its run. This means if a movie opens up on Friday, we cannot see it for $7.00 on the following Wednesday. We must wait until after the 2nd weekend.

Our options. There are two!

Continue to see the movie in it’s first week, but at an increased cost to $8.00. – Including doing more opening night shows.
See movies showing at AMC after the 2nd weekend. Ticket cost would be $7.00

This does not currently affect movies at the Century Theatre in the Westfield Shopping Center. Actually, we are going to try to gear towards seeing more movies there, and would go there exclusively if they offered the same shows as the Metreon.

This is where you come in. We would like to know what option of the 2 best suites you. We will take your input seriously and make a decision. I can say, at least we don’t live in NYC where you have to pay $1.00 more surcharge to use these passes. Please feel free to post your feedback as well.

Nothing I can do. Already called corporate, and they said we should have never gotten the deal in the first place. I told them that it's a lose lose, but they didn't seem to mind.

I miss it being Lowes. They had the best discount ticket plan on the planet.

The good

This is my good Avenue Q Post. I saw the show in NYC about 2 years ago with the original cast. It was great. I had forgotten all the frekin funny lines between the songs. The touring cast did an amazing job. Kate Monster sounded just like the original. I am destined to see it again. Even if it has to be crappy obstructed view seating.

Saw soo many people. Many I knew and many hotties I didin't know. WOOF.

Too many LJ'r to remember. LOL It was also need to hear people ask why all the bears where there.

I got a nice surprise. The group sales manager found my seat and gave me a poster autographed by the cast. He said "We wanted you to have this since you were our top group leader for this show" or something like that. Very coool! Anyone know where to get some cheap poster frames. I have a few that I need to get done.

That's it for now except that I am hosting Karaoke this coming Wednesday night at the Mint. I have 5 pair of tickets to give away for the Sept 11th show of Mamma Mia. If you can make it, we start at 6pm, and draw for the tickets at 9pm.

MovieBears Post ahead.

Spiderman is coming out tonight! MovieBears is going to see it next Wednesday night. I bought out all 600 seats in the IMAX theatre for it. And I have all 600 spoken for with a 40 ticket wait list to boot.

This is the biggest event I have done, and the logistics are scary. I am sure I will get through it just fine, but it is still going to be a challange.

Fun times

I had such a fun time last night. I got to meet and say hi to so many people. People were already there at 5:45 when I got there to start getting things together with the theatre management.

It was crazy from the start. The line did not stop for almost an hour. I was thrilled that the theatre was ready for us when I got there. No getting tickets and waiting in another line.

The energy of the crowd was so awesome. It is great to hear all these men laugh at the funny parts. All the other times I saw it the audience was very mixed, black women/gay men.

Thanks Mike, Drew and Keith for helping. I could not do it without you. And thanks Steve for showing up to support it. I really think you should open your mind a little to something different! Look at kevin-v5's post on the movie.

Thanks so much to the most awesomest graphics designer I know, and Photoshop Magician. I feel like I use him so much! And he is the bestest roommate ever, and I feel like a shit for not getting him a shirt. [livejournal.com profile] boyshapedbox

Here are me and my bitches for the night!!

Tonight's Spelling Bee was a hoot. I got chosen as one of the spellers. I was wearing Camo Pants, a tank top that said Ruff Riders and my Mr. SF Bear 2004 title vest. When called to the mic for my first word, Miss Perretti said that I was in a production of Goldi Lox and the 3 Bears. And that I was Goldilox and fucked all 3 of the bears. I am told I turned beat red. My first word was Mexican. Easy word.

The other 3 guest spellers got their turns and were elmiminated. I was the last guest speller. When called up to the mic for my 2nd word, The MC said that I wear cammo pants because I have discovered that they hide me very well in the bushes at truck stops. My second word was satiated, which I totally blew because I drew a blank up there. I was hoping for a hard word like xerophthalmiology, or lysergic acid diethylamide which are 2 words used in the past to elminate guest spellers. I am sure had I not fucked up satiated, I would have been given one or both of them. Oh well. I was satiated with the experience.

After blowing satiated, Mitch Mahoney, the comfort counselor came up to me and started to sing his balad song and good bye to me. He paused and gave me a hug and I hugged right back and put my head on his shoulder looking out at the audience with content. Then he let go, looked at the audience, and hugged me again. I did the same thing, but this time I held on and when he tried to let go, I kept holding. He stated to laugh!. It was really fun.

A great way to start the week, that is for sure.

Time to go give my squeeze some affection, and get some sleep.

Yay!!!! Ennio is Here!

[livejournal.com profile] glovercom told me about this show

[livejournal.com profile] squalidbear said it was one of the most entertaining shows he'd ever seen.

Jeff says...

It's nearly impossible to describe, suffice to say it's kinda like if Beach Blanket Babylon was performed by one person with paper oragami costumes. I know, it doesn't sound funny, but I assure you that it is ingenious and, indeed, very funny.

It's family friendly and perfect for a night out with Mom & Dad, as well as a good "date night" with your husbear, potential husbear, or trick!

DO NOT go to BerkleyRep's Ennio Page and DO NOT watch the video on that page because it will spoil some of the surprise, but if you're still skeptical, have a peek! http://www.berkeleyrep.org/HTML/AtTheRep/ennio.html BUT DO NOT WATCH THE VIDEO!

We're going on the 22nd at 9pm, and I I have discount tickets. Great seats for $35.00 ($10.00 off the regular price). Let me know if you would like to go, I have tickets left.

AMC Metreon has posted show times for Superman Returns, which is opening Wednesday, June 28th!!

The show times are:

10:30 | 2:00 | 5:30 | 9:00 | 12:30

Kind of disappointing times since many people like to go to the movies between the 7pm and 8pm hours.

Oh well!! We will be there in force.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] heypyro for telling me about Delores Movies in the Park, and [livejournal.com profile] bigreddee for telling me about the Film Night website, I have put up a schedule of outdoor movies that will be shown at Union Square and Delores Park this summer.

Hope we can get some fun peeps there! I will be going to see Airplane next Thursday. My all time favorite film. I have never seen it on a big screen.

That is the number of tickets I have for X-Men now. New Record for sure.
I actually have 2 left

What fun tomorrow should be.

So, if all goes as planned, X Men: The Last Stand will break attendance records for SF MovieBears. I have 151 RSVP's at the moment. Between now and Friday, that will fluctuate as people decide they can't make it, and others want more tickets.

Here are the records.

36 11/10/04 - The Incredibles
44 4/6/05 - Sin City
58 5/19/05 - Star Wars Episode III
74 6/15/05 - Batman Begins
113 11/18/05 - Harry Potter: Goblet of Fire - IMAX
137 12/9/05 Brokeback Mountain - Only show not at the Metreon
126 5/19/05 The Da Vinci Code - Metreon record breaker

On November 10, 2004, I had 82 on my email list.

As of today, I have 487

SF MovieBears went to 65 movies and events in 2005
Have attend 32 this year so far which include about 8 FREE Pre-Screenings offered by Castrobear Presents.

And the fun continues.

The number of seats left for the 7pm showing of "The Da Vinci Code" after I purchased discount ticket number 130!

I actually have 6 left! Hopefully they will be gone by the end of the day.

This actually beat our Metreon record of 113 who went to see Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire on November 18th. Then again, I had 325 on my mail list then and now I have 480.

Brokeback Mountain is still the record with 145 at one showing.

I do believe X-Men might just top that.

I introduced myself to the Managing Director of AMC at the Metreon today. I told him that I have a weekly movie group there to which he replied... "I have seen you guys"!! I asked him about big opening movie nights and told him I get discount passes from Corporate. I said the only thing is, we can't use them for IMAX, to which he replied "Lets make an exception then"!! YAY!!

So starting with the release of Superman Returns, SF Moviebears will be going back to IMAX!!!

On a related note, Century Theatres, who will be opening the new theatre at the shopping center near Powell does not offer discount tickets. So SF MovieBears will continue to go to the Metreon.

And on one more releated note. I got more seats for a Chorus Line, so if you want to go, RSVP tomorrow starting at 10am to http://chorusline.sfmoviebears.com

Tonight MovieBears gathered at the LGBT center to see Poseidon Adventure. Even a walk in who was there for something that was cancelled came in and enjoyed the show. She was the only female. No Shelly Winters look alikes.

Several LJ'ers. :-)

It was great to see everyone, and meet a few new people.

The good... The wall was a great screen for the movie. The people were fantastic cutting up the film. Lots of great nasty comments and hooting and hollering.
The Ok.... The sound was okay. Will have to work on that and figure out the best sound system.
The room was not bad. Had a bit of light coming in, but was workable.
Not a bad presention using my home stereo/dvd system and a rented projector.

I HAD FUN! That is what matters, and i think everyone else did too.

Thanks to everyone who helped set up and tear down and bring all the stuff back to my apartment then have a gang bang on [livejournal.com profile] boyshapedbox's new King sized Bed. It was like an army of bears heading to my place.

UGH, I don't get it.

No matter how specific I get, people just don't read.

I sent out several emails about this weeks movies for SF MovieBears. Every email I sent out about "Poseidon Adventure" for this Wed, I included the words "The 1972 Classic" and "Shelly Winters" Yet people still think I am showing the new movie "Poseidon" at the LGBT Center. I wish I had that much influence with Movie Studios.

And I send out these great FREE movie notifications, and include exact RSVP instructions in them, and people still do it wrong.

Luckily, I am a nice guy and let them know they did it wrong and give them a chance to fix it.

Hey there,

I got my hands on some 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee tickets for Wednesday Night the 5th!! If you are interested in going, please let me know how many tickets you would like.

Let me tell you, I took [livejournal.com profile] smiley_kiley's advice and went and saw this show, and loved it. It was so well done. The music was fun, the acting great. Not bad for adults playing 12 year olds.

I think [livejournal.com profile] kevin_v5 should go for sure.

So if you want to go, let me know ASAP.

Jan the Hat Lady called me about the Brokeback Party on Tuesday. She's so perky.

She said she is already busy that night, but is going to give the info to the assignment desk. If they can cover it, they will. We shall see.
dhbearguy: (moviebear 2)
So I am having a little party on Tuesday the 4th. Well, it is just a Moviebears night out to see Brokeback Mountain again at the Embarcadero. 89 people have RSVP'd already.

I was really nervous that the theater would stop playing the movie since the DVD is being released on the 4th. I called them today, and they told me they will be running the movie until the 6th. WHEW. But then he told me that they are showing it at 1pm, and 10pm. I said "No early evening show???" He asked me how many people I was bringing, I told him 83 as of right now. He said "Lemme call you back"

They added back an 8pm show just for us! YAY. The power of the bears!!!! Moviebears is also going to get some press in the Bay Times. Sister Dana caught wind of the event and wants to do a story on it pre and post!! So that is exciting news. I sent in the quotes from everyone who replied. I leave it to Sr. Dana to do her magic.

So I am going to have about a dozen shirts, AND a dozen DVD's to give away after the movie. And we are gonna have dinner at Fuzio before the movie at 6pm. Have about 30 RSVP'd for dinner so far. It should be a really fun time!! Probably will not break our 145 record from December 9th, but it is gonna be a great fun time.

I'm happy!
