Sarah Jessica and Oprah invited die-hard Sex and the City fans to be the first audience to screen the film. This screening was unlike any in Oprah Show history. For the first time, projection operators stopped the movie 20 minutes early to keep the top-secret ending under wraps.
The audience may not have seen the final few minutes, but they did get a special surprise from Sarah Jessica herself before the lights dimmed! She came to Chicago to introduce the film and to ask the audience to take an oath of silence so none of the plot twists get out.
Watch Sarah Jessica surprise a theater full of Sex and the City fans.
"I am going to ask of you something that I will never request again, and that is that you keep a secret from your friends for the next 29 days," she said to the audience. "Repeat after me, 'I solemnly swear to not reveal any of the secrets I learn tonight in Sex and the City: The Movie.' ... You can brag, but you can't blog."
Though she's seen the movie in its entirety, Sarah Jessica says attending the first screening was an emotional experience. "You guys are the first to see it. It really is the culmination of an extraordinary past two years," she says. "We feel extremely privileged to have made this movie, and I'm extremely proud of it."
