Last Thursday/Friday, I had the privledge of attending the H2 Premier at the the Plaza Theater. There was a good crowd there, including Jonathan and Michael from the H2 Bunny Crew, people who had worked behind-the-scenes for the movie and lots of extras from the Phantom Jam scenes.
We arrived early at 10:30pm for the midnight showing.
There were already lots of people in costume out front along with one of the Rabbit in Red Billboards.
We went inside and grabbed our tickets. Luckily, Darrell had ordered them earlier. I'm not sure if the theater sold-out or not but it had to be close. In the lobby areas of the theater, they had several large pieces from the Phantom Jam, family pictures of the Strode family and even fake degree's that were handing on the wall during the Margot Kidder scene. One of the center pieces was Laurie's Glass Coffin.
It seems that when Zombie left Georgia, he gave most, if not all, the props to the crew at the Plaza that had helped with the movie. One of the other cool props was Myer's knife. Nick was showing it around when Michael took him up on the offer to take a closer look at it. Of course, there had to be a picture of an H2 Bunny Crew member with THE knife and no one was more deserving than our own Michael...
There were so many people there and so many things happening that I didn't have a chance to speak with nearly eveyone that I wanted too. And while it was a busy night, I was able to get a few other pictures!
