did you ever watch zoey's extraordinary playlist on NBC? it was a super cute show that ran for two seasons with a cast that included jane levy, skylar astin, and mary steenburgen. i was super bummed when it was cancelled because there was still so much story they could have told. plus it was very glee-like, and you know how much i loved that show. but while the regular show was cancelled, somehow they got the roku channel to pick them up to do a christmas movie, which gave the fans hope that maybe they'd get picked up for at least one more season. as of right now i don't think anything has been confirmed, though. bummer.
so anyway, when i saw a post on twitter that was offering free tickets to a screening of the christmas movie, i jumped right on it. it was going to be at a movie theater somewhere in downtown l.a., with the creator of the show, the cast and other key people present. i managed to secure three seats, and although neither of the girls had ever seen the show they were game to go with me. thank goodness, because it would have been kind of sad to go all by myself.
the theater was located in one of those newer trendy shopping centers in the financial district, and it was pretty easy to find and park (which is always my concern when heading out to the west side).
since we'd arrived early, we walked around a little to check out what shops and restaurants there were. i'd read that the theater was one of those dine-in spots, so we decided to just head over and see if we might be seated early.
the staffers there were friendly and helpful and directed us to a spot in line for check-in. there weren't too many people there when we arrived, but it got busier as time went by. the red carpet was behind us:
it was a school night and we got home kind of late, but it was worth it. at least i think it was. heh.
