Of the many perks that came with working at DC Comics in the 1990s, one of the coolest was the free movies. Every Wednesday night, there was a screening at the Warner Bros building a few blocks away of a current film—and not just WB movies, but from other studios too—for the DC employees. Free first-run movies every week? You betcha.
Which is how I saw the Sylvester Stallone movie Demolition Man, with Wesley Snipes as the scene-chewingest of bad guys, and a pretty much unknown Sandra Bullock as Sly's sidekick.
The best part, though, for me, was the laughter that swept through the audience at the surprise cameo appearance of...me.
Coincidence? Highly unlikely.
