AFTER-ACTION REPORT: The Undefeated! Orange, CA
July 15, 2011 | SoConPubbie

Posted on 07/16/2011 12:09:41 AM PDT by SoConPubbie

Wife and I joined approximately 150+- conservatives in the 7:00 showing of The Undefeated at the AMC Theatres in Orange, CA at The Block.

Movie was well received by all in attendance with many, many ovations culminating with a standing ovation and even some in tears because of the positive American message that was presented.

The movie was simply awesome!

It provided much more background on Sarah's executive experience with a strong emphasis on her limited government approach to government in general.

It covered her come from behind elections for both her campaigns for Mayor and Governor, as well as, her time on the Oil and Gas Commission of Alaska.

The movie also makes a great case as to why the GOP establishment fears her.

And finally, the movie really shows why those of us who have supported her really respect, for her sincerity. This came shining through.

An added bonus was Andrew Brietbart and Mark Levin simply excoriating the GOP Elite and leadership, particularly Brietbart calls them for what they are Eunuchs.

If anyone, with even an ounce of sincerity and a conservative bent can come out of this movie without either an enhanced positive opinion of her or a changed opinion from negative to positive, then that person is probably not sincerely a conservative.

Those of you who are naysayers of Palin or her supporters, do yourself a favor and go see the movie with an open mind, it will change you.

Those of you who think this movie will do nothing to further Governor Palin's popularity or acceptance by the mainstream, will probably change your opinion if you are brave enough and objective enough to go see the movie.

There was an Afterburner, organized by Organized4Palin, at the El Torito in the Mall parking lot. 40+ people showed up, including Tammy Bruce. Apparently there were similiar Afterburners after earlier showings as well.

The movie will play both Saturday and Sunday at this theatre and then I believe they are going to try and extend the run based on theatre attendance, which by the way, on a per-screen basis was only second to Harry Potter.

Rondog, EveningStar, and several other Freepers(whose names I have forgotten given my poor memory) were in attendance at the Movie and the Afterburner.

As they announced (almost correctly) at our "after party" @ El Torito, from conservatives4palin.com:
Andrew Breitbart Reports That The Undefeated Has the Best Per Screen Average
for All Movies Shown at AMC Theaters Except for Harry Potter

Posted on July 15 2011 - 10:42 PM - Posted by:

In case you are wondering why the mainstream media isn’t reporting on the attendance for The Undefeated, here’s your answer:

#TheUndefeated #2 (out of 30) behind HarryPotter per screen AVG according to 5 o’clock read/AMC.

We need to get the independents to see this film.

I'd like to see the looks on the faces of the lame stream media who have excoriated her over the years.

I understand!

There was a BIG CROWD at the "after party" -- including MANY "not yet FReepers..."

...and quite a few Organize4Palin folks from all over the state...
...but I saw at least THESE FReepers @ El Torito:
SoConPubbie (and Mrs. SCP)
Lily4Jesus (and her four friends)
AGthorn
abigail2
(and her friend)
EveningStar
Mr.B goes to Washington
(and Mrs. B.)
tammybruce
RonDog
Sorry if I missed anyone!
I will post some of the "not yet FReepers" and "Organize4Palin" folks -- soon!

FWIW, to the newbie who added the "vanity" keywords to this thread:
1 - You don't get much more NON-vanity than an L.A. Chapter FReep "after action" report,
2 - I asked SoConPubbie to post this thread,
3 - Supporting this powerful new movie about Governor Palin's accomplishments in Alaska
is in COMPLETE alignment with the core values of this forum,
4 - The Moderators here can tell EXACTLY who posts which keywords on a thread,
5 - Governor Palin will soon be PRESIDENT Palin -- so get used to it, and MOST importantly,
6 - The BIG DOG around here likes this Mama Grizzly -- so BACK OFF.

Soon-to-be PRESIDENT Palin with Free Republic founder Jim Robinson

Here endth the lesson. ;)

I was at both the 4 pm and the 7 pm shows...
...and there MIGHT have been a few empty seats at the very front -- in the "neck straining" section...
...but the "official" capacity of that theater is 314...
...and there were pretty close to that number of people in attendance at both shows.

I don't want to get the nice folks at the El Torito in trouble with the Fire Marshal...
...but let's just say that YOUR estimate of the crowd size at our "after party" was MUCH LOWER than mine. ;)

We expect MUCH BETTER photos from the "after party" -- soon.

Was this an official Freep of sorts, or exactly. I’m 100% for that. I’d like Free Republic to help Palin. I like seeing Free Republic do stuff IRL. It used to happen more often. It’s good to see.

For any who attended beind Cali and all...Serious question. Were there any people you saw either indifferent or openly negative to the movie or was it pretty much well received by everyone?

Any protesters or anything of the sort?

Mrs. JohnnyP and I went to the 4:05 showing. Probably half full. Sorry we missed you.

Sarah for President, what can I say? The media has hidden so much from us about her.

Lots of clapping and cheering toward the end.

We’re not used to theaters and almost walked out before it started, because of all the ear splitting ads and previews.

I felt like shouting out “Does any one else think it’s too loud?”

Thanks, RonDog.

I'm here in the People's Republic of KeithEllisonandAlFrankenandMarkDayton (thank God for Bachmann and T-Paw!), so I won't be going to a screening. Couldn't get my wife to agree for the $$ for a two-day pass to RightOnline a few weeks ago, so I missed it there.

ES, where are your snide comments about Palin and the movie? Cheers!

You better go see it now. Obama isn’t going to get the economy fixed. He is destroying it.

Wait until he finds out his unearned millions are worthless.

Great minds think alike!

From twitter.com/#!/ThomasSSchmitz:

YouTube: "The Undefeated" @ Orange, CA "after party" says "RUN, SARAH, RUN! [7/15/11]"
You cannot SEE all of us at the "after party" in this video...
... but you can certainly HEAR us!
PS - That would be FReeper AgThorn in the white O4P T-shirt just over Thomas's right shoulder.

This viewer will confess to a very stubbornly resisted tear in my eye, which I somehow managed to keep at bay through the entire film. Just was not going to let that happen.

Wan't easy.

Yeah, much like Peter Singleton in Iowa, Tom has been doing much of the heavy lifting in enemy-controlled Southern California from the start, even before O4P came together.

Evening Star was there??

Waiting to hear what on earth she has to say...a positive review by her would be a miracle.

1 - FReeper EveningStar was at the "after party" at my specific invitation.
For "The Undefeated" to work, it has to been seen by more than just "true believers" in Governor Palin.
2 - EveningStar is a "he" not a "she." ("Mr." VR gets that a lot, too!)
For MORE about this kind of (understandable) online confusion, see: FReeper names
3 - EveningStar has been "out in the trenches" on L.A. Chapter FReeps with us for over a decade, so gets quite a bit of "grace" from ME.
If YOU are still posting here in 2021, maybe I'll cover YOUR back, too. :)
4 - Evening Star:
- posted what became our "pre-FReep" thread for this event,
- was at the 1 pm showing of "The Undefeated" with his wife, and
- showed up at the "after party" -- even knowing that he would catch Hell for it -- there, and here.
I dare anyone posting on this forum to match that kind of "open-mindedness" towards a subject with whom YOU disagree.
My "faith tradition" believes in REDEMPTION. What about yours?
We are engaged in a SPIRITUAL battle here, so we should EXPECT miracles!
That said, I'll let EveningStar speak for himself. He is NOT (yet) fully on board with Governor Palin, IIRC. ;)
