Rocky Horror GLEE Show - Midnight Screening

Nuart Theater showing The Rocky Horror Glee Show
Hello, my name is Chrissy and I'm a Gleek. I'll admit it. :)

A couple days back, I logged onto Facebook and saw that Glee had posted a message saying that we could attend the Exclusive Midnight Screening of the Rocky Horror GLEE Show. All I needed to do was be one of the first 200 or 300 people to email FOX with my name! I logged onto my junk email and proceeded to send it... entirely skeptical, half thinking this was a scam, and not daring to hope I'd be selected. A couple hours later, I received an automated response saying that RSVPs were now closed. I thought, "Well, that was that. I didn't get selected. Oh well..."

Glee's Facebook Winners
BUT to my great surprise, the next morning, I saw that I had a CONGRATULATIONS email in my inbox! I was STOKED! I (plus a guest) would be allowed to watch Glee 5 whole days before the episode was going to air! I scurried to find another fellow Gleek who was free that night (Thurs., Oct 21st) and we were set for a new adventure in Gleek-dom!

We arrived there at about 9:30pm and saw there was ALREADY a line. (The email had said the line starts at 10pm!) Yup, I guess it's true... you can never underestimate a Gleek!

We were a bit confused at first because there were two separate lines: one for "Facebook Winners" and one for "Promotion Winners." Wait a minute... wasn't this a Facebook promotion?? Haha! We weren't the only ones confused but we ended up going into the Facebook line since that's where I originally saw the link.

Doors weren't set to open until 11:30pm so we had a lot of time to kill. My friend and I caught up on our current lives, reminisced about old times, and played some games on the trusty iPod Touch.

When we finally got in, we saw that the lobby was decked out in Glee pictures and replica Rocky Horror props. The smell of freshly popped popcorn that was taunting us as we waited proved to be a welcome gift. Each of us received a free bag of popcorn and a bottle of water!

As we waited for the episode to start, the screen was displaying a slideshow of The Rocky Horror Glee Show pictures along with the songs from the episode. I definitely prefer this over regular advertising and previews! :) The episode itself had some pretty hilarious moments.

**************SPOILER ALERT*****************
Thanks to Brittany, I *almost* want to be a "peanut allergy" for Halloween! Haha! I love her lines! Now, I just need to figure out how to pull that off. Hm... ~_~ There was also a lot of nice abbage in this episode. Who knew Sam and Mr. Schue were rocking such nice bodies? As a Gleek, I highly approve. *school girl giggles* ;P

After the screening, they gave us goodie bags that came with a free Rocky Horror Glee Show soundtrack and T-shirt! They then let us take some of the photos and items that were in the Glee display. And of course, we had to take lots of pics with the giant Glee pictures/posters! (Haha, as a Gleek, I felt it was my duty to take an "L" picture in front of each board, but those pics are posted elsewhere. :P)

Check out the stuff I took home! I was sooooo happy I was able to snatch a Glee cone! I wanted a poster too but the other girls took those before we could, but I'm very pleased with what I was able to get. :D Needless to say, I am one content Gleek! The only thing that would've pushed the night over the top would've been the cast appearing themselves, but I guess that will have to be reserved for another adventure in Gleek-dom. :)
