    In response to my earlier tirade:

    After logging in to Fandango.com today, I found that there was a listing for 12:01am on Wednesday, May 15, 2002. When I clicked the link, it directed me to a 12:01am showing for Thursday, May 16, 2002. This showing had tix available. I immediately scooped up the 4 tickets that I need for myself and my group. We'll be in Fresno @ Edwards at around 7pm (ish) that Wednesday night, ready to rock. I've provided the link below for all you Fresnans (and those like my group from Merced/surrounding areas) to skip all that Fandango site surfing:

    Edwards Midnight AOTC Showing

    See all of you there!!

    Yep, someone at school who works at Edwards I know told me they were on sale and I went and picked up 2 tickets for 7:30Pm opening day.

    I went to the window and was like "Are you selling Star Wars tickets?"
    "Yes for the midnight showing"

    I was like "Uhh...... no other times?"

    "Oh uhmmmmmmm 4:20, 7:30, 10:45"

    The theatre does have the totals that have been ordered online, correct?? I have never used Fandango before to order tix (I usually buy directly from the box window), and I'd hate to think that Edwards would keep selling tix, not taking into consideration the tix that have been purchased through Fandango. Anyone here bought online before and had success??

    went to edwards this morning and they were still selling tix. i picked one up for myself. my guess would be that fandango can only sell so many before they stop because they do have to take into consideration that not everyone has a computer! anyway, they also said that there werent many tickets left. see you all there!!

    it might be a way to remind the buyer that you'll be waiting for the movie on the 15th

    I'll be going to the Signature at Manchester. It's closer to where I live, and I expect it won't be quite so crowded and the line will be shorter. I got the ticket yesterday, and it says 12:01 am, May 16. It's showing on screen #1, which is the biggest auditorium with the biggest screen and the best sound.

    I bought Spider-Man tickets on Fandango.com

    I picked them a few days ahead of time, they just slid our credit card through their POS (computer) system and the tickets printed out.... I would assume that as soon as they're sold online they tell Edwards and reserve the seat.

    Anyone going @ 7:30?

    Going to Edwards to get clarification on these sorts of issues would be just fine, IF I DID NOT LIVE 60 MILES AWAY. Why does Edwards not have a # that one can call and ask questions of an employee?? All the theatres here in Merced do. Brenden Theatre in Modesto does. It is not simple for me to jump in ye old car and drive to Fresno whenever I need to ask a question of the Edwards "staff". I now need to add another ticket to our group, but, I'm concerned now that if I do indeed buy the ticket, this last person coming with us will be flying solo in the 2nd theatre, as the order for the rest of our tix was placed on 5/5/02. I am still very much excited about the viewing of Attack of the Clones, but the legwork and effort that it has taken to get it all finalized and squared away has been excruciating. I hope to Hell things go much smoother in planning Episode III's bash for 2005. Thanks for allowing me to vent here, FanForce Fresno!!

    blueoakleys,

    I hope the words you speak are the truth. I think it should operate like TicketMaster or BASS, where the moment the individual makes the order, the seats are theirs. So if Theatres A & B are the theatres (hypothetical names), then if A is the first opened up, and I buy tix, then my 4 tix should be for Theatre A. Just my $0.02. Thanks for the insight!
