UPDATE - 4/17@7:22AM: Reader Kelly D was at the screening and posted a few of the more memorable quotes from the Q&A to her Twitter feed:

Q: "What's 1 word that comes to mind about all this- Alex, you can't say 'chicks'!" A: "The 1st word? 'Holy shit.'" "Is that two words?"

Geddy re: touring after "the bad time" in the late '90s: "Sometimes out of a bad time, a good thing comes"

Jim Ladd: "You seem to genuinely like each other!" Geddy: "Yeah, we're good at faking that"

Alex: "Against the man-" Geddy: "The naked man" - @rushtheband re: Caress of Steel and 2112

"Like most Canadian families, we filmed dinner" -Al of @rushtheband on Come on Children's spot in #BTLS :D
