FBF: Godzilla Premiere

Godzilla Premiere
Hollywood, CA
May 8, 2014
I’ve always loved Godzilla, and grew up watching it because my younger brother was always watching it. (I’ll admit that there was a time when I hated Godzilla, but only because I was sick of having to watch it every weekend.)  I have a few friends who really, really love Godzilla, one of whom had told me over a year before the film’s release that I was to invite him (even though he lives in San Diego) to the premiere if I got passes.  Unfortunately, he notified me a day or so before the premiere that he wasn’t going to be able to go.  Two other Godzilla-loving friends couldn’t go, but then the day before the premiere, one said he could.  I had extra passes so I could bring 3 people, so the Munchkins’ parents both came as well as another friend.
The premiere was being held inside the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, and I left work early because I wanted to be able to walk around and take pictures of the setup before having to get in line.
They had special popcorn boxes for the premiere so I ate 2 boxes of popcorn so I could save the boxes for my friend, Chris, in San Diego.  Interestingly, I later won passes to a screening of Godzilla which included an after-party.  We got some swag at that screening which included a Godzilla T-shirt, light sticks with the Godzilla logo, posters, etc.  The friend who went with me to that screening wasn’t a Godzilla fan so she got the shirt in a size to fit Chris for me to give him.

The premiere was fun, and I really like the movie and I’m impatient for the next one.  If they have a premiere in Los Angeles, I will have to get passes because I don’t think Chris will want to miss a Godzilla premiere again.
