So as soon as I got out of the amazing Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger screening, I ran straight to the end of the Ready Player One premiere line (which thankfully was across the street from where I was), got my queue card which guaranteed me admission into the movie, found my friend and waited in line for almost three hours for what I didn’t know was going to be one of the greatest experiences of my life!
The thing about this screening, was that it was a secret screening. They didn’t announce that it was playing at SXSW until the morning of. Now when I first saw trailers for this movie, I didn’t care too much for it but when I heard SXSW was playing it, I made sure I would be there. It was amazing because it was a real world premiere for a HUGE movie! It seemed so unreal that I would be there at times! And the BEST PART about being there was listening to one of the greatest of the greatest movie directors of ALL TIME, Steven Spielberg! A man who’s made so many of my favorite movies! Not only did I get to be in the same room with him, watching a movie that he directed, listened him talk about how much he loved this movie, being just a handful of people in the world to have seen it, I also got to experience a major technical difficulty that happened in one of the most climactic scenes in the film, and it honestly made the already phenomenal movie even better because everyone in that theatre was experiencing it together and we were all just so happy and amazed by everything we were seeing. Idk, I hate this saying but you really did have to be there to understand what I’m trying to explain. It was just unlike anything and I will remember this night for the rest of my life!
