A Birmingham guy named Chance Shirley (great name!)
says he and the missus “went down to the local multiplex last night for a 7:40 Family Stone screening. After hearing your concerns that Fox had dropped the ball marketing-wise, I was surprised that we had trouble finding a seat — the place was packed. It wasn’t long before a theater manager stepped in to let us know Stone would be playing on an additional screen. Both screening rooms were pretty full after all was said and done, and the film seemed to go over well with the audience. We don’t live in the most metropolitan of areas — I’d imagine the movie will play even better in the bigger cities. Thanks for the heads-up — my wife and I both enjoyed it.”
