I attended the first two movies . . . pretty enjoyable overall.

Now, for some constructive criticism based completely on what people around me were saying:

- Movies should start at their advertised time, not 20-30 minutes later. People have meters to feed, dinner reservations to meet and babysitters to relieve. Why should someone who got there on time be forced to wait for people who didn't and are still in the concession line?

- PLEASE, PLEASE, either prepare some written material for the "MC" to read before/between the features or get rid of him completely. And don't try to promote these events as "a fun night out for the whole family" only to turn around and make some weird joke onstage about someone in the audience (who just won a raffle prize) maybe being "your secret lover". When the 8 year old next to you asks what "What does that mean?", it's officially awkward.

- Lastly, lower the price of admission. I heard several people complain about the picture quality, only wanting to see a certain (single) movie and "having to pay $10 to get into a garage sale".

THere was a great crowd and from what I overheard people had a very good time. 10 bucks for 5 classics is a steal. You cant rent movies for that. AS Iceman said if you are so critical of the show, vote with your feet and stay home. It is a cool thing that Big John is doing and he is offering  a cheap night out for families and offers a venue that kids can go to without their parents worrying about  what they might see.  So Gillman-Fan if you think it is so easy to do why dont you put on a venue like this? It is easy to complain and point fingers. Not so easy to put on live events.

Anyone who has had a bad experience at this event, twice (whether or not they are the only one), should not go a third time. If they do, we can assume the experience wasn't as bad as they say it is. If you do go a third time, contact the vendor with any complaints.

I was pretty diplomatic in how I worded my first post in this thread . . . try re-reading it. Or don't.

As a cinephile and a big Portage booster, I attend a lot of shows there the least of them being the one's foisted by Big John. The points I raise are just as valid as those parroted by his fan club . . . I paid my admission and am entitled to my opinion.

That said, personal retaliation against me is out of line. His use of words like "BOOT-LEG" should not be taken lightly . . . I've seen a fair of amount dubious material (home-made DVDs, reprinted posters and recast resin kits) at these shows and it would be a real shame to see someone get busted

I paid my admission and am entitled to my opinion.

But not, necessarily, around here. At a certain point these complaints need to be taken up with the vendor and when it starts looking like a conflict of personalities, it doesn't belong here.

And anyone who doesn't know the definition of "bootleg" should look it up before using on this board.

It would seem like someone has a personal vendetta for whatever reason.  I know someone has tried to contact Universal to see if the films being shown at the Portage were being authorized by Universal. They are. It is odd that people who supposedly love Universal monsters would try to sabotage a venue like this.  It is a lame attempt at best, done by some mouth breather with lots of free time apparently.

I would respectfully ask everyone here at this thread to please calm down and move on to something else. Future comments are being watched very closely here and could result in not only this thread being locked, but accounts being placed on a moderated basis. The mods here will not invest a lot of time in sorting out "who's right or who's wrong." We don't have the time nor patience for diplomacy amongst personal opinions and squabbles. I know that might sound as if we're uninterested and unfair, but we must do what's best for the community at large. And we will not permit bickering to poison our garden of Eden. Take it somewhere else - like offline. Final warning.  ;)
