[Update, March 16, 2011: Congratulations to Heidi, and to Ben who've commented here. Ben passed along his set of tickets to a friend, Brian, due to a scheduling conflict (he had his own show to do!). So, Heidi, Brian and their guests, as I write this, are in the company of Ron and Douglas. Way to go guys! And enjoy the film!]
