  1. Max & Rick says:

    The first showing of “Sully” a few months ago was a sellout. A suggestion was made and all the volunteers agreed to present the movie again as soon as we cleared the theatre. The folks who missed the 1 p.m. showing returned at 3 p.m. to view the movie.

    That same tired group of volunteers stayed to host the 7 p.m. for the scheduled Thursday Night movie. That made three showings in one day by a limited number of volunteers.

    Every Thursday, as emcee, I ask for people to join the Thursday Night Movie family. We offer training for every position a volunteer might be interested in.

    Your Thursday Night Movie volunteer staff work hard to ensure our moviegoers are made welcome and comfortable. The logistic issues for availability of the auditorium, reserving seats, and any method other than “first come, first serve” are too numerous and would require still more Volunteers.

    We appreciate your frustrations when you arrive later than 300 other people and there are no seats available. Perhaps, if enough of you would volunteer to become part of our family, we could arrange for additional showings on the days the theatre is available.

    By the way…I was honored to be part of the volunteers who made it through that three movie showing Thursday.

  2. Hello, is there any chance that you will be showing The Darkest Hour again? It was sold out almost immediately when the doors opened. Thanks.

      Hello Mickey. We checked with the Friends of the Library. The Film Committee notified us that “Darkest Hour” will be shown as a special matinee at 2 p.m. Saturday, April 7 in the Stardust Theater. Doors will open at 1 p.m.

  3. Marg Aromando says:

    That’s the answer, why not?
    Why not a matinee and an evening, instead of turning people away”sold out” after they are in line for one hour.

    Or try pre paid in advance this way you know people will show up if they pay in advance. Just an opinion , we were very disappointed.

    • RCSCW PR says:

      Marg, the first-come, first-serve policy is that of the Friends of the Library, who run the movies. It would be up to them if they wanted to change to offer a matinee and evening show, or if they wanted to charge for tickets in advance. Right now, they ask for a suggested donation of $2 per person – it is not technically a charge. The shows, like the Friends, are run by volunteers as a community service and to raise funds for Library materials. All materials in our R.H. Johnson Library are funded by the Friends, who raise money through these movies and their book sales. Charging for movies in advance – if it is even possible under their regulations – would require an inordinate amount of extra volunteer time, or paying for a ticketing service, which would cut into their revenue. If you have additional questions, please contact the Friends’ President Larry Woods at 623-556-8929. Thank you.

    Can we purchase seats via email or phone before movie?

      Hello Marg. Tickets for the Stardust movies are first come, first serve and cannot be purchased in advance, sorry.
