A new Cinemit feature!
We found out a while back that Cinemit members don't just passively answer the questions in our RSVP posts to enter to win screening passes - the vast majority care about what they write and are sincere! It's very entertaining to browse RSVP answers!
Our new feature will consist of posting the question asked in all of a movie's screening RSVP posts (they are all the same for each screening, for the most part) and showcasing 5-10 of our favorites. You'll find a variety of AWESOME responses - from funny, insightful and inspiring, to sad, crazy and sarcastic - you name it! In the future, we hope to award members that give the best responses, so stay tuned!
Without further ado, here are our responses we received for the following RSVP post question for screenings of the movie Won't Back Down (we might fix major spelling errors in responses, but other than that will only post actual member answers!):
"After college, many friends said that was the end of my improv comedy days! As of two months ago, I am full time actor in an improv troupe!"

"It's my 12th grade year, i joined some clubs, finished my credits and everything was set..except my FCAT. I failed the Reading FCAT which held me back from recieving my diploma. I did walk with my class becasue, i felt i deserve to in a way.This was the most diffcult stage i have had so far in my life but i didn't want it stop my from my goals. During that summer, i thought about what i needed to do to start my college life. I ended up aiming for my GED. I took all the classes and all the hours at the nearest high school passed the GED program. I then started to studied for the actual GED..i passed!! My highest score believe it or not was in reading. Now i'm starting college and it feels great!(:"

"I tried to give up drinking and drugging when I was young. I did it for a year then failed. 6 months later I was able to do it and now I have been clean and sober for 26 years!"

"It's been particularly taxing and disappointing this past year of my PhD program. Lots of things that have felt like "failures" but I've never lost sight of the goal!"

"At the time I was born, I suffered two strokes causing brain damage with the doctors telling me and my parents I would not be able to function like others especially to even graduate from high school with a dipolma attending college. Over the years, the brain damage is still there with the existence of a Learning Disability, however, it has healed on its own as I have graduated from high school with a regular standard diploma and currently attending college for an A.A. degree in Broadcast Journalism. I am blessed and lucky to even be on this earth today alive."
