Blogging and the City - BlogHer 2010: A Disney Movie Premier and more swag

I was a Disney Movie VIP at Blogher10

Disney invited a few bloggers attending BlogHer to a special screening at the Manhattan Regal Theater of their yet to be released movie "Secretariat".  We had special VIP seating which meant all the middle rows of the theater were reserved for us - too cool!  

The movie's producer, Mark Ciardi, attended the screening and gave a short talk before the movie began.  Although I am not allowed to give you an official review of the movie, I can say that in true Disney fashion, "Secretariat" is a movie with a wonderful story and a brilliant acting cast.  Even though I knew how the story was going to end, the movie made my heart pound and left me breathless as I got caught up in the storyline.  Disney has a real winner in "Secretariat" and I know the movie will do very well at the box office when it opens in theaters on October 8, 2010.

After the movie, we left the Regal theater and walked to the adjacent hotel for a meet and and greet cocktail party with the movie's producer Mark Ciardi.  Mark was very friendly and gracious while talking with bloggers about why he felt compelled to make "Secretariat" and how he wanted to do the true story justice with a great movie.  As bloggers were meeting with Mark, we were sipping on specialty drinks from the three bars at the private party. 

On our way out, Disney gave every blogger a Disney gift bag that contained movie branded t-shirts and a hat - all of which my son swiped the minute I got home.  

Come back on October 4th for SWAG!
If you are intrigued to know about the movie, come back on October 4th to read my official review.  Disney has even agreed to do giveaways on Free Is My Life of the same gift bags that we bloggers received at the screening.  So mark your calendars if you want to win some Disney swag of your own!!!
