Though the audience is mostly made up of 30-ish single males, there are two couples in attendance, both bundled up in New Balance sneakers and sweaters.
Andy, 30, and Margot, 24, live in the neighborhood and rent The Wire here. Andy works as a government contractor and Margot is a nanny. Neither has ever come to an event at Rocket before, but they did sneak in to see Werner Herzog at the Arclight during the L.A. Film Festival.
"That is the other thing we rent here," Margot explains.
"Werner Herzog films and The Wire," her boyfriend confirms.
As Reddick sits at a small card table after the talk, signing DVDs and answering a few one-on-one questions, a middle-aged woman rushes in from the rain and, with an exasperated sigh, shakes off her coat and looks at Reddick with disappointment.
"Oh, no, I missed it! The rain was so bad. I've been trying to get here for an hour."
Miller has one more announcement for the crowd: "Next month, writer Paul Haggis will be here. And he might bring Charlize [Theron]. Maybe. He might bring Charlize."
