OCTO-BNAT Attendees Chosen! Did You Make It? Celebration or Sadness? Click Here To See

Hey folks, Harry here... Well I just got done with the list. There is no making everyone happy and in two years when we celebrate the 10th Anniversary of BUTT-NUMB-A-THON the odds will get quite a bit better as we're trying a noble experiment that year which could mean I'll be able to let a great deal more of you in. Keep your fingers crossed. Some people that have been to every single BNAT were cut this year in favor of fresh blood. Quite a few BNAT virgins have gotten in. And as always - I've tried to even up the sexes for swifter bathroom access for all. I know that seems like an odd criteria, but when you've got a schedule to keep, it helps. Now - what does it mean if your name is on the following list? It means that YOU and only YOU have permission to buy your BNAT ticket from the Alamo Drafthouse when they become available. Once you have bought this ticket - you are guaranteed admission to the world's most exclusive and mysteriously secretive film celebration. Which begins at 12 noon on Saturday, December 9th, 2006 and continues non-stop till 12 noon on Sunday, December 10th, 2006. Wait, didn't you mention something about screenings on the Friday and Monday before and after OctoButt-Numb-A-Thon? I did. Your ticket is good for these, but you'll need to RSVP for these events through the DRAFTHOUSE once the pages for them are set up. I will notify you here on AICN. The Friday film is Guillermo Del Toro's PAN'S LABYRINTH and the Monday film is Alfonso Cuaron's CHILDREN OF MEN. The Friday film should be starting at either 6pm or 7pm Austin Time - again - this will be clarified closer to the event. And CHILDREN OF MEN will start at 7pm Monday. The RSVP for those is so I know how many available seats can be offered to the local public, in case your travel plans don't allow for you to attend these stand alone screenings. Tickets should be purchased as soon as possible once they are made available. The ticket money goes towards the cost of the event and to sponsor the SATURDAY MORNING KIDS CLUB that screens cool and wonderful films to kids of all backgrounds - as well as the HEROES OF THE ALAMO foundation for the preservation of the Original Alamo Drafthouse which has become a non-profit in order to stay in the original location and bring the best in cinema programming to Austin. My Name Isn't On The List - Is there any Hope? Yes, you have one avenue left to you. The STAND BY LINE. Calling me, won't help. For whatever reason - your application didn't make the cut. This process is especially hard on me as many of you are friends - however after 10 years of running AICN - I've made a lot of friends. For example - BNAT has been going on for 7 years, this being its 8th - and in all that time, my sister has never been able to come - even though she loves films like you wouldn't believe. This year, she can and she will. My personal list doesn't change in size each year - to keep it open to as many people who I wish to invite to experience this experience. If you didn't make it in and you are local. TRY the STAND BY LINE. Details on the STAND BY LINE will be forthcoming closer to the event. Where's the List? Right Here in the order picked: 1.

Omar Salinas Ok - So realistically - are there any extra seats? Yes. But these are seats for Filmmakers bringing films and the folks that they inevitably bring along. There could be people that due to financial problems or personal issues have to say goodbye to their BNAT8 dreams. These seats become holdovers for the STANDBYS and I'm not reassigning them under any circumstances. Because this list is now in Tim League and the Alamo Drafthouse's hands. My attention is now focused on finalizing the line-up, the incredible BNAT BAGS, the Poster Art and all the other creative things I have to organize and set up. I'm sorry if you didn't make the list. For those who are on the list, welcome to Geek Christmas aka OCTOBUTT-NUMB-A-THON!!!!
