Dude, Mondo is the Alamo. The Alamo is Mondo. It's no different than Apple. iPod is one division, iPhone is another, but they are all Apple. When someone in the iPod division wants to get something done they carry the weight of Apple with them. The same goes for the Alamo.
As for the Apocalypto Mel Gibson screening, I could totally see how that might of been set up by Harry. He was a co-founder of Fantastic Fest if memory serves. On the other hand it was Tim League that orchestrated the first ever public screening of the new Star Trek with Leonard Nimoy delivering the prints. It was the Alamo that brought in The Warriors. It was the Alamo that brought Robert Downey Jr. and Iron Man 2. To think that they could not bring in a name director, actor, writer, SFX wizard is nuts. Especially when so many of them live right in LA... AND they have Tarantino's name to leverage since he owns the theater.
Whether they will, is another question all together.
I mean almost all of that was Harry. Star Trek was a surprise made for Harry, and Iron Man was organized by him. Favreau knows and loves both the Alamo and Knowles specifically, same with Abrams. If you're thinking of a promotional screening, it was Harry Knowles.
I get what you're saying, I'm just saying that it is much harder and much more complicated than you're making it out to be, and I would be floored if they were able to get someone like Spielberg to come to one of these. That makes no sense.
Tarantino makes sense since he owns the joint. SFX artists make sense. Both would be rad. And I can't see them doing 6 MMMs and not having special guests... so far it's been a staple of the MMMs, don't see why they would stop now. I'd definitely agree that something
like that is going to happen.

Apparently the RDJ hung out with folks at the Highball after as well. Unfortunately, I missed it.
God damn. I bet that was a party.
It was cool... but not like you could just walk up to RDJ and hang out with him. He also left really fast. I wouldn't be too upset about missing it.
