Many times I have gone to free screenings for films ahead of theatrical release dates. The story about this one is more memorable. I knew “Spider-Man 3” would draw a large crowd, since it was one of the hyped summer movies. So I made a point of going early and planning to be in line by 5 p.m. In fact I was 20 minutes earlier than I had scheduled.
When I received my wristband, I was surprised that my number was 110. I was concerned about my choice of seating inside the theater. It wasn’t until I made it inside that I learned that there were two theaters showing the film and that eight radio stations had given out passes. A lot of people had camped out for a place in line earlier in the day.
That brings me to my design and color choices. I realize this film became the butt of jokes, but I still liked the whole dark version of “Spider-Man” - or “emo” as some have dubbed him. Anyway, I went with a spider web pattern using the traditional “Spider-Man” colors and then a black and gray for the dark side. 'No clearing away any cobwebs for this memory.
