ThinkGeek Movie Night: Ferris Buller and 33 eMacs need YOU.

eMacs!

Oh dear.

We need to find homes for these before any of the others hatch.

The story behind these crazy old eMacs is a long one that may or may not involve an alien queen (or our holiday temps). Regardless, these eMacs have got to go. It's been months, and they have a tendency to loom. We'd like to keep them out of landfills and we know that there are some of you out there that can find a good use for them. So we decided...

It's time for a movie night.

What you need to do: Be one of the first 40 local geeks to enter for a ticket. Be willing and able to munch on free pizza, watch Ferris Bueller's Day Off without audibly reciting the lines along with the actors, and have the space in your car for one of our 33 eMacs.

The details, broken down:

Attendance:

  • There can be only 40. Sad but true. Since this whole affair will take place inside, we really can only fit 40 of you in here.
  • The first 40 people who enter via the form below will be emailed the equivalent of a ticket. Save this email and print it out to bring with you. This is very important. It's how we can make sure you're not a spy or a Cylon.
  • Everyone who is invited can bring exactly one other person with them. Any more than two people in your party and they will have to enter for themselves.
  • Geeklings are welcome! However they will count as your +1 if they are coming.
  • If you are one of the first 40 and have to cancel or cannot come for any reason, let us know ASAP! Reply to the email-ticket we send you so that we can contact the next person in the list to take your place.

Time, Space, and Noms:

  • Movie night will be held on Friday April 27, 2012.
  • ThinkGeek HQ is located at 11216 Waples Mill Rd, suite 100, Fairfax VA 22030. (Please note handy maps link!)
  • Doors will open at 5:30pm. Prepare to have your hand stamped, your email ticket checked and to enter your name in for raffled prizes which will definitely include at least one Tauntaun.
  • You may also be handed a mystery prize just for showing up. Ooo!
  • The adoption of the eMacs will begin around 5:30 or so, along with tours of ThinkGeek HQ. Be prepared to haul one of our 33 alien eggs to your car/chariot/shuttlepod.
  • There will be pizza! We will get a variety, including plain cheese, pepperoni, sausage (Abe Froman's favorite!) and veggie. There will also be an assortment of beverages, both fizzy and not. The pizza should show up at around 6:30pm if we play our cards right.
  • Ferris Bueller's Day Off will start playing at 7:00pm.
  • We will begin the raffle directly after the movie ends. Whovians, Star Wars fans, and Portal geeks might want to remember to enter their name in at the door.


That's it everybody! We've got plenty of entrants and cannot accept any more!

If you are one of the 40 chosen, we'll email you within the next day or so. If you are not one of the 40 that we email, do not lose hope! You're still in the running if someone cancels!

See you on the 27th!

meaningless icon! "Yeah, that's right, just, uh, roll her old bones on over here, and I'll dig up your daughter. You know that's school policy."
mysarajane said this 982 days ago.
meaningless icon! Just asking, how many people have already signed up? I would guess this would be a sold-out-in-twenty-seconds kind of thing...
Bobberpi said this 982 days ago.
meaningless icon! Ahh! Fingers crossed - I hope I get to check out TG HQ!!
SuzyQ_826 said this 982 days ago.
meaningless icon! @Bobberpi Can't tell ya! Though if you signed up, you are definitely in the running. If you're not one of the first 40, you're still in the running if anyone cancels. So there is hope!

drryan50 said this 982 days ago.
meaningless icon! Nooooo! This is the same exact time as a wedding I've already accepted going to. Please please PLEASE have more of these in the future! (Pizza and movie parties, that is. I don't require an eMac, but thank you though!)

mjstone said this 981 days ago.
meaningless icon! I hope it's not too late to get on the list of hopefuls.... PLEASE may I come? I would love to visit, view the movie with geeks, consume pizza, and oh yeah, win an eMac... <3 I even have the day free without duct-taping anyone into a closet!! :)
Jasta said this 981 days ago.
meaningless icon! Sorry folks! It's true, the entry form has gone away because we got more than enough entrants to choose our 40 from and to have backups in case someone cancels. Wish we could invite everyone, but the Fire Marshall would frown on that many people in such a small office. :/
Raevyn W. said this 981 days ago.
meaningless icon! You should let us know when all the emails have been sent so we know if we don't have one that we're on the waiting list :D
SneakyBaron said this 981 days ago.
meaningless icon! @SneakyBaron The decide-a-tron 3000 (us) will be deployed today and the 40 lucky geeks will be emailed tomorrow if we play our cards right. So keep an eye on your inbox!
Raevyn W. said this 981 days ago.
meaningless icon! Any chance of getting one of the eMacs even though I didn't get my Ferris Bueller submission done in time? I was really hoping to turn one into a terrarium for my poison dart frogs.
FrogMeister said this 980 days ago.
meaningless icon! BOOYAH got a ticket!!
SonoftheSuperGeek said this 980 days ago.
meaningless icon! @FrogMeister Hrm, email us your contact info to Replybot@ThinkGeek.com? If we have any left over, we'll call you to come pick one up. (You're local, yes?)
Raevyn W. said this 980 days ago.
meaningless icon! Garmin has been uploaded, Vehicle serviced, Geeklings babysitter has been scheduled, Find my Iphone has been Disabled " Work will go to any lengths to find me", Office is locked and all firewalls are set to Cruise Control, Sorry Facebook wont be any employees logging in from the office IP address. Fellow Geeks I'll see you tomorrow at 5pm for pizza. Im hoping for Bacon on at least one pizza we are geeks after all.....
TechPimpDaddy said this 966 days ago.
meaningless icon! If there end up being surplus eMacs (because not everyone may want to have an alien egg follow them home), I may have a lead on a local school with an eMac computer lab who would happily use them. I'm working out the details - I'd be inclined to donate mine to them if they can use it! :)
