I really want to know...

They left the whole Oakland,CA, Berkeley,CA, and Dublin,CA markets without a single theatre showing it!

Regal is showing it, just not in the Bay Area. Century has the bookings for the film, with Loews Metreon showing it in the city.

Maybe they don't feel like dealing with the target audience. I wish we were that smart.

The Regal Brandywine 16 in Delaware (right down the street from us) doesn't have it, nor does their flagship theater in Philly, the King Of Prussia stadium 16 IMAX (right UP the street from us), so we have to deal with all the riff-raff now. [Frown]

We were booked with 2 screens of the movie. Luckily the last show is at 8 pm. I've dealt with this riff raff before so its not new to me it is just new to everyone else who have never dealt with this clientele before.

Could it be a "limited release" thingey, or a movie that some circuits don't want to bother with very good reasons not to book this?

We're showing it on 2 screens, which totally suprises me. However, our cross town competition does not have it. Last night things were fairly calm for this film, but I hope folks can just come in, behave, and enjoy. It's just a movie, afterall.

Regal, in Nyc, is showing Get Rich in several area theatres: Court St and Sheepshead Bay in Bklyn, Kauffman Studios in Queens, and on 3 screens at New Roc City. All theatres already draw rough crowds, maybe I'll have some interesting stories to post on Monday.

This is why no one should be running this piece of [bs] movie. But that's just my opinion.


WEST HOMESTEAD, Pa. -- Gunfire in the Loews Waterfront movie theater killed a man Wednesday night, West Homestead police said.

The victim, identified as Shelton Flowers, 30, of Wilkinsburg, was hit in the thigh and chest. He died later at UPMC Presbyterian.

Employees at the concession stand reported hearing the shots, police said. Soon after that, Flowers was found near some video game machines.

Two men were seen running out of the main entrance after the shooting, witnesses told police. Another man left through the rear doors.

Police said nobody has come forward to identify a shooter, even though the building was busier than a usual weeknight, with the 50 Cent movie, "Get Rich Or Die Tryin'" debuting on two screens.

Flower's aunt told Channel 4 Action News reporter Marcie Cipriani that her nephew went to the theater to see the 50 Cent movie.

The West Homestead police chief told Channel 4 Action News that the department put an officer on duty at the theater -- which is unusual for a weeknight -- due to the showing of the movie.

The chief said the officer did hear the shots, and right after, the victim crossed the officer's path and collapsed.

Allegheny County homicide detectives are now handling the case. They have not commented yet.
