In The Mailbag: Kolin Singh writes in "Hey Peter and the gang,  My question this week is about press screenings. I was curious about how they work. – How do you hear about them? – Who gets invited? – Are you allowed to bring anyone? – How early do you have to be? – How often does the theater get completely full? – Are there ever any Q&As with cast and/or  crew? – Lastly, are they worth going to? I'm sure they're free and that's a big plus, but is it worth it considering you'll probably have to get there super early for good seats and sitting with so many people could cause problems with Phones, chatting, etc.  Love the show and keep up the great work everyone!"
