Did you get to keep the pins as souvenirs or were they the 'ticket' you had to hand over for entrance?
Of course - we got to wear the pins and keep them! And one of each pair of invitees/winners got to keep the cardboard ticket they came with.

This event was double the size (two cinemas of the multiplex) of the gala premiere that the same publicity team ran a few months ago for "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters". For that they had a red-bloodstained "white carpet", a long tunnel walk-through (with live caged actors), photo op sets, free alcoholic drink ticket, DJ, live Twitter feed, big screen for the celebs' arrivals. etc.

This time we had a traditional red carpet, and very screen-accurate sets to walk through - a long corridor, working doors, brig, observation deck, huge projections of future London and the bridge of the USS Enterprise, two free drink tickets - and a female DJ looking exactly like Carol Marcus!

Wow. Were cameras allowed in the walk-through/carpet area?

Yes!

The walk-through was deliberately made for photo ops. People were sitting in the brig, grinning and snapping away, then moving on to the next locale! The sets looked mighty solid for something so temporary. (And the projection of the bridge set photographed so well that it fooled many people who've written to me to ask, "They built the whole bridge?")

The Paramount organiser told me that they've come to realise that attendees of these events tend to Twitter and Facebook their pics immediately, so it becomes more publicity than they could ever hope to buy.

In 2009, fans and celebs attending the "Star Trek" premiere at the Sydney Opera House had to surrender their phones, so there was a long delay before their hastily-snapped red carpet pics started to show up online, not to mention the fuss after the event, with everyone reclaiming their devices from Security - and, of course, no one had pics of inside the screening venue or of anyone famous on the red carpet who entered after the main audience was seated. (Ditto the sneak preview of ST 2009 that I won tickets to, about a week before the public opening; we actually left our phones at home that night - and felt naked without them.)

The risk, of course, is that some idiot will try to pirate the whole movie and put it on Youtube, but it least they are an idiot who had to gamble on winning a free ticket first.

I'm grinning too just reading about it!

Looking forward to viewing your photographs of the event. If you plan on posting them, that is.

Boy, have you been missing staff meetings.

I posted my slideshow in this thread at about 3am the morning after, after frantic cropping and assembling:

You sure did. I totally glossed over the link to the slideshow in my haste to read your review. Sorry about that.

A Star Trek film with a song? That's just... weird. And cool.
Well, there were words to Ilia's Theme (and Shaun Cassidy even released a version as a tie-in to TMP).

ST IV had "I Hate You".

There is also a song by Hiroshima on the ST V soundtrack, "The Moon's a Window to Heaven". (And there was always "Row, row, row your boat.")
Wow, I never knew there were lyrics to Illia's theme, and I'd forgotten all about the song in STV. Thanks!

You know, of course ToA, that we are living vicariously through you during all this.

Three of us had dinner tonight to debrief, and we came to the same conclusion. Eeeep.

Someone made a mini-movie of Muppet Therin greeting fans on the red carpet and entering the corridor set. Will try to post it somewhere if I can get a copy!

I promised no spoilers. I had to cover the Muppet's eyes.

And for that, I am grateful. I have one thread to attend to without having to worry about spoiling my premiere. I am afraid, though, that at some point I am going to learn more than I want to. I keep hoping there aren't any spoilers put into the thread titles.

Tonight, Aussie TV has a screening of "Star Trek (2009)", and it is bookended by "a special look" preview and some kind of "Making of..." presentation on STiD.

Link contains promo stills from Paramount Pictures Australia:
