I have had so many questions from BSB fans regarding the event I attended yesterday and decided to share it in a blog. I promise it’s spoiler free! I was lucky enough to be invited by a super awesome and fellow BSB friend, Maria, as her plus 1 to attend the screening of the new Backstreet Boys movie “Show Em What You’re Made Of.” The screening of the movie was at Century City AMC in L.A. on Thursday, August 7th, 2014. They only sent an invitation to a select number of fans that are a part of the BSB fan club. I was so ecstatic that one of my friends received the invite and she asked me to come along! Weeee!!!!
When I first arrived, there were already a good number of fans waiting in line. But I was still surprised that it was the least amount of fans I have seen at any BSB event, and I’ve been to quite a few of them. I have been a fan since I was 15 years old, when “Quit playing games with my heart” was first released in the U.S. and was blasting on the radio! OMG! I remember those days soooo well! High school was mainly amazing because of BSB for me! I became a fan right then and there and NEVER looked back and have never been ashamed! Why should I be? They are only the BEST BOY BAND EVER! And who cares that I just hit my 30’s and I’m married with 2 kids and another one on the way…I LOVE BACKSTREET BOYS! And I always will :)
Okay, enough about me..so let’s talk about the screening. About 15-20 minutes or so before the movie was supposed to start, the doors opened and in walks A.J.! Ahhh! He walked in like it was no big deal and all of us fans were all looking around and not knowing what to do. We were upstairs and he waved to us all from below and said “hi.” So then I look over at the stairs and then look at A.J. and I’m like “hhmm..what’s stopping me from just going down the steps and saying hi to him?” I thought the worst that could happen is somebody will tell me to go away. He didn’t have any bodyguards or security around him, so I was like “what the heck, it’s worth a try!” So there I went, racing down the steps (I’m 5 months preggers by the way), and next thing I know I’m standing in front of A.J. He was talking to someone and I just kept staring at him and waiting for my turn. I couldn’t believe that he was right in front of me! Then he looked over at me and we talked for a few minutes, he hugged me and we got a photo together. Ahh! Best. Day. Ever! I kept hoping that at least one of the boys would show up to the premiere and I’m glad I wasn’t dissapointed.
Then it was time for us to get in the movie theater, but not before we all gave up our cell phones for them to keep hostage. We were all crammed into a tiny auditorium (not sure why they didn’t get a bigger one) and were greeted by the director of the film. He gave us a quick intro and said he has a special guest and in comes A.J. He thanked us all for coming and was hoping we’d love the film. The movie was 2 hours long and it was perfect! Of course, I wish it was longer..I would definitely not mind a 10 hour long movie, but we can’t always have what we want. I really don’t want to spoil anything for anyone, but overall the movie was amazing. The movie basically covered everything that has happened to them in the last 20 years, lots of info that we already know, but also lots of secrets and awesome old clips to see. I cried a lot and wish I had brought tissues! But I also laughed a lot! The boys are so funny! There was also quite a bit of screaming and cheering going on too. I can’t wait for you all to see it. I believe that no matter how long you have been a fan, as long as you love BSB, you will love the movie!
Unfortunately after the movie was over, the lights came on and we all went out into the lobby to get our phones back. And that was it. I was hoping for some more info on the movie and the release date and all that good stuff, but we didn’t get any info. Maybe they just don’t have the info themselves yet.
Hope this was helpful, thanks again for reading. Enjoy a few photos below and feel free to comment and/or ask questions.
And as always, KTBPA!!!
A quick photo of me and a few of the BSB girls :) (Big thanks to Julie’s hubby for this photo!)
This is the moment A.J. first walked into the theater. I took this pic from the 2nd floor
I took this photo after running down the stairs and just stood staring at A.J. waiting for my turn! hehe
