Who watches the WATCHMEN? Portland does this Thursday

     October 15, 2008

There are a lot of test screenings in Los Angeles, and if this one was here I would’ve kept the info to myself. But since it’s way north of me, I thought I should give all you Oregon residents a heads up.

This Thursday, Warner Bros. is testing Zack Snyder’s “Watchmen” in Portland. They’re trying to get a blind audience, so no one would know what they’re seeing. Well, that is…until now.

Here’s what I know, the movie is scheduled to show at the Regal Lloyd Center 10 Theater in Portland at 7pm.

While all the test screenings I’ve been to use passes to get in, supposedly the screening has no passes and they’ll just be recruiting people at the theater that night. So if you decide to go, it’s probably a good idea to play dumb.

As I said, they’re actively looking for a crowd who doesn’t know anything about the comic book or, even, comic books in general. Just show up and look around for someone connected to the screening. Who knows, maybe that day they’ll have passes. You’ll probably be given the first degree and it’s up to you to convince them that you’re an average American who saw “Beverly Hills Chihuahua” last weekend.

However, let’s be honest, after this article gets posted and around the net, there is a good chance the screening could be moved to a new location or another time. I’ll of course update this story if I hear anything, but this is the only way I know how to get the word out…

One last bit, if you didn’t read my reaction to watching almost 30 minutes of footage, you need to click here. It’ll help you understand why so many are passionate about the comic book and the upcoming movie. If you live in Portland and manage to see “Watchmen”, please feel free to send a review my way….
