We recently had the pleasure of sitting next to Gilchrist and girlfriend Jen Yamato at an AFI Fest screening, in what turned out to be the highly contested territory of Egyptian Theater main hall, row T. Even though the Saturday, November 6th gala presentation of Barney’s Version was anchored around ticketed seating, a lack of proper “Reserved” designations in that row had caused citizen patrons to swoop down and, as things progressed, loudly refuse to relocate.
