Time for the Annual Passholder preview of the Guardians of the Galaxy Sneak Peek. It started at 6:30. I showed up about 6:35 for the 2nd showing. No lines to speak of. They scanned my annual pass as I entered the queue and I walked right in.

Movie posters lined the walkway. Notice the overhead LCD screens are gone.
