During the first showing of the free movie at AMC on June 27th, I left home at 10am and arrived at 1025am and was able to get in for the free movie - Happy Feet. The free movie starts time is 10am every Wednesday. Yesterday, we arrived at AMC Del Amo Mall at 1039am to watch Ice Age 2 for free. I didn't get out from home until 1010am.
This time, we didn't get to watch the free movie. The cashier told us they only issue tickets up to 30 minutes after the show started. I was 10 minutes late and was denied for the free movie passes. It didn't matter to me as I knew that we won't stay for the whole movie and I just wanted to get Brandon use to the theater environment. We left the theater and walked around the mall instead. Before we left the theater, I saw a line for the new Harry Potter sequel, mostly school kids. Harry Potter is not in the free movie but it was the opening day for Harry Potter.
So next Wednesday, I must prepare to leave before 10am and arrived at the ticket counter before 1030am to get my free passes to Barnyard.
EDIT: the movie we missed that Wed was ICE AGE 2.
