Do not confuse movie premieres with movie screenings, which are private test screenings of unedited films. Movie premieres are not dress rehearsals. They are the real deal, everything the public expects, but they have a little more flair. There are two types of movie premieres: General first-showing movie premieres and red carpet Hollywood premieres. Red carpet events in Hollywood are exclusively for the cast and crew of a film and are by invitation only. Friends and family of the crew attend as do select members of the press. Fans stand outside the theaters to get a glimpse of their favorite actors, but the fans are not allowed admittance. General movie premieres can be at any large theater. They are fan-oriented, and although celebrities may appear at the events, the fans and celebrities do not typically share the viewing experience.
