Expelled screening coming to Phoenix

Although the "Expelled" RSVP page mysteriously dropped all upcoming screenings after the media coverage of P.Z. Myers being barred from a screening in Minnesota, a few cities have appeared on the list again and Phoenix is one of them. This could be a chance to see the film without giving its dishonest producers any money--I've signed up. (Free is the only way I'll bother to see this film.)

The site now explains the cancelled screenings as follows:
Due to unavoidable changes in the travel plans of the producers of “Expelled”, several of our screenings have been canceled or are being rescheduled to a new date or time.
While that may be true, I wonder if it's merely an excuse to drop all of the existing registrants and do more stringent screening of who is allowed to be admitted.

Well, I'm up for screening, will there be a group excursion?

(Will Scooby and the Gang be there?)

Jim, what did you specify for your organization?

In signing up for the Denver event, I used 'Denver Skeptics Meetup' to see how they'd react.

I gave my employer and title... perhaps they'll use that to exclude me since I didn't list a church or bible study group.

It doesn't appear they made any effort at the previous 'private' screenings to cross-reference the email invitations (containing the 'secret' url) with those who actually signed-up at that url, much as PZ did.

Should I be accepted, I'll try to smuggle in Phil Plait as my Dawkins.

I received noticed earlier this evening that the 'private' screening in Denver has been cancelled "due to unavoidable changes in the travel plans of the producers of EXPELLED."
