Hey everybody. I saw this promoted on the Xbox dashboard a couple of weeks ago, registed for it, and just got a text about it last night. Free screening to see the movie "Hot Tub Time Machine" in your town. You can get tickets for you and one other person or you can host a screener so you get free tickets for you and 9 guests along with free soda and popcorn, free reserved seats, and a free t-shirt. I registered to host one today and got my tickets by email within the hour. They just send you one ticket for you and 9 guests so you have to arrive together. Make sure to watch your junk mail folder...that's where mine went.
Cast: John Cusack, Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, Clark Duke
Looks like they're all around the end of February/early March.

I've seen the trailer and it looks great, I actually do want to go see this. I signed up and It says the screening is full for my area and I will notified near the release date if there are any openings. Mine is dated for March 3rd. Is your screening happening soon?

Awesome find, thanks OP. Just found out about the movie yesterday and was interested (big fan of John Cusack comedies). Signed up as a host for the later Seattle date as the first one was already taken.

Mine is for Feb. 25th. It depends on your area when it is. It looks like they're all around the last week of Feb. or the first week of March.

It's full in my area, but just some words of advice to those of you going: get there early. I went to a screening of 500 Days of Summer last year and there were about 200 people lined up. They overbook so that the theater is full no matter what.

Agreed. I've been to dozens of screenings over the last few years and this is generally the case. However, there are tons of variables in place. This screening has been advertised a lot on mtv.com, so expect them to give out a lot of passes. The size of the theater and whether or not it's a press event also matters. I was probably 40th in line for a screening a couple of years ago and didn't get in because it was a small auditorium and a lot of press was there. Location matters too. When I lived in Philadelphia many years ago it seemed like screenings rarely filled up. Anchorman was about 1/3rd full at a small theater. Napoleon Dynamite was completely packed, but I got seats 5 minutes before showtime.

Then I moved to a city on the west coast and there was a damn community of people who went to screenings. Half of them didn't know anything about the movies they were seeing, weren't the target audience, and would often walk out if they didn't enjoy it. They were mostly un(der)employed or retired and there were probably about 30-40 of them that showed up to every screening 2-3 hours early and saved each other seats. That rippled through casual movie goers who picked up screening passes once in awhile and pretty soon you couldn't attend one in that city unless you got there a minimum of 1.5 hours early, and even then you'd get last choice of seats.

There's a showing only 2 miles away, but I try to stay away from the free-for-all showings for the reasons mentioned above. Although, I'm tempted to talk some friends into going in order to score the reserved seats. So, is anyone going with a group of CAGs?

I got tickets for the showing in Kennesaw, GA - the other Atlanta area theaters were full. Watched the trailer with my wife, who has decided that even free is too large a price to pay to see this movie. I'm going anyway.
