    ESB Folks,

    Just thought I'd start a thread to keep you guys in-the-loop as to the Premiere at the Patton Creek RaveMotionPictures in Hoover, AL.

    As of right now, it's past the April 15th 'On Sale' deadline and our theater has yet to post tickets online for the 12:01am showing. We are in contact with management at the Home Office and at the theater to find out what's up with the delay.

    I will post more when I know it. ;)

    Thank you, Kevin for keeping us updated. I can't believe it's almost time. Just as soon as the tickets go on sale, we're on it.

    We should know for sure when tickets will be on sale by Monday at the latest. Should I forget to post about it here, watch our website for confirmation either way.

    No confirmaton yet, but our contact has rated the chances from 90-97% that they will have them onsale sometime this week.

    Also, we found out that should they get the digital (DLP) version, only one will go on sale online to give walk-ups the chance to get in on the goodness, and this helping us out with the immersion factor.

    I'll keep you guys updated, but watch our site just in case!

    OUR Rates are : $81.00 Per night.

    Due to the lack of interest in reserving Amerisuite rooms, the Block has been removed, so space is limited. If you want a room, GET IT NOW at the same $81.00 price!

    Does anyone have a map or driving directions on how to get to the Patton Creek 15? Some of us in Nashville are thinking of making a road trip to the nearest digital screen, and it looks like Birmingham would be closest. Unfortunately, I can't seem to pull up the map on Mapquest or Yahoo maps. If anyone knows a nearby landmark that would show up on a map, that would help, too.

    This is the hotel across the street:

    AmeriSuites Birmingham Riverchase
    2980 John Hawkins Parkway
    Hoover, AL 35244

    Try putting that address into Mapquest.

    It was one of the most successful and fulfilling events we've ever hosted, guys! We got some much promotion that our website was down for over 8 hours due to having exceeded our alloted bandwidth.

    Thanks Daniel (sorry if the name is off) for attending, and I surely wish you guys had came! It was worth it to see what we had going on.

    I hope to see you all at a later event. Until then. :)

    I'm glad everything went well, Kevin. Yeah, I noticed your site was down due to bandwidth being exceeded. I truly wish we could have made it. I was really looking forward to it.
