These events first of all aren't films - you're getting some kind of streamed delivery that acts as a big ad for the sponsor. The whole thing is a big corporate takeover of the park.

Filming was only at the first screening with Raging Bull (to tape the interview with Don King). No other events will be filmed.

Darn it I was going there only because I was relying on being filmed. #mychanceofstardomtakenawayagain
