Capone has the Winners' list for the exclusive AICN screening of LOOPER, with Joseph Gordon-Levitt & writer-director Rian Johnson Q&A!!!

Hey everyone. Capone here, with the list of winners for tickets to see an exclusive Ain't It Cool News Chicago screening of LOOPER on Monday, September 10 at 8:00pm, with a special post-screening Q&A with actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt and writer-director Rian Johnson. To give you guys an idea of the scope of this contest, I had more than 400 entries (representing about 800 seats requests), so the odds of getting into this were especially tough. On the flip, side I loved reading everyone's thoughts on various time-travel movies.

Those who entered and won will receive an email from me shortly with the details on the location of the screening. If you entered this contest and your name is on the list, but you did not receive an email, let me know and I'll get you the details.

Although this is an exclusive AICN event, our winners' seats will be held until 15 minutes before showtime (meaning 7:45 pm), at which point any unclaimed seats will be given to the stand-by crowd. Also, please be aware that this screening is deliberately overbooked to make sure we have a full house for our guests. So, please arrive no later than 7:45pm to make sure you get in and get a good seat.

And because we've had way too many last-minute cancellations at recent screenings, the 24-hour cancellation policy does not apply for this screening. If you enter this contest, win, and cancel or don't show up for ANY REASON, the Black List will become your new best friend.

    Sad to not win...

    by Batguy

    But enjoy, all of you that did! I also wonder why there are plus 2 and 3 winners. That means that a few potential winners were denied. Then again, it's none of my business.

    Relax, dude. The studio and filmmakers have guests as well. Those extra bodies aren't part of our 200 seats (there are actually 220 seats in the theater). I just wanted to consolidate the lists for check-in purposes.

  • I would really appreciate it. Thanks, Capone! You're the best!

    I misplaced the hyphen in my post above!!!

    Please don't hold it against me, Capone!!!

    Is this screening the same as the gofobo one?

    by Anacott_Steel

    Gofobo is having one the same night, but it couldn't be the same location. This AICN event is in auditorium 2 @ Showplace Icon, which like Capone said, seats about 226 on the main floor. Study showtimes folks, and you'll know where things will be. See ya'll at Icon's #14 Tuesday night for "Dredd"! Got my tickets from gofobo via Graham Cracker Comics.

    RE: anacott_steel

    by Capone

    Yes, but gofobo people are being used as seat-fillers if AICN winners don't show up. You'll be in a separate line, and no matter what time you show up, you get in after all the AICN people. Enjoy.

    Just wondering if you will be interviewing JGL and Rian and posting it on this site? Thanks

    Won tickets, took night off of work, showed up full hour early. Not even a chance at getting in? I know , don't look a gift horse in the mouth, but wow.

    by Jonathan Earley

    At least none of you were the people in the Gofobo "rush line." Showed up four hours early, to only get turned away with a pitiful, "Sorry, you should've read the fine print." Poor communication by this website.

    To the 50 of you who waited on the stairs for an hour and didn't get in, how's that blacklist treating you? What a clusterfuck Capone.

    I'm on the blacklist now?
