Well whatever the major complaints may be, I'm still going to the Royal Oak double feature tonight, with Astral Factor and The Doomsday Machine. Not sure if they're 'new' films or not, but they're definitely different from the live show I saw last time. There IS rampant stupidity with the ticket purchasing websites, though...they wanted $6 for 'ticket insurance.' I believe that's an option for the sort of people who never buy a new car without undercoating seal protectorate and go for the TV offer of two whole Shamwows for only $19.99.
Not that that's CT's fault, but really, how hard up are these venues for money when they have to result to that sort of snake oil?
