Adventure Time Time: Series Finale Screening Event LA

Update: Adventure Time Fan Art for the LA Times

Got to go the the special finale screening event last Tuesday here in LA. It was held at the The Grove at the Pacific Theatres there. We can tell you the ending was just great and watching Adventure Time with big audience never hurts. Jeremy Shada (Finn), Olivia Olson (Marceline) and Adam Muto (showrunner) ended the night with a Q & A with some really cool guy from Nerdist. They said that video would air some time next year? We hope that was a misquote. Free stuff was thrown out to the audience as we said good night to the the finale after the Q&A where Adam Muto comes off as a likable weirdo.
Could it have been better? Heck yeah. The people handling it seemed really unprepared, like they never dealt with people before. Wait time was about 4 hours in line for those who got in. They could have given out badges and tickets and told us to come back at a certain time, they did hand out tickets and such, but just told us to wait.

Many thought we'd be partying before the event in some sort of cool Adventure Theme zone. Nope. It was the line being moved.
Pacific Theaters at The Grove wasn't that great a location as it was under construction in the lobby and gave everyone in line a false hope of a special Adventure Time area behind the construction. Which there wasn't.

In any case, it was a fun event at the end, that could have been planned out better.
