    On the Loews web site there is a banner to order advance tickets for AOTC.

    Tickets are on sale for AOTC right now...for many different theaters. However, I assume we need midight showings? We could always go to an early showing...although I know midnight showings have the better feel.

    A bunch of Loews theaters, including Boston Common, were put up on Fandango last night, if you guys hadn't noticed.
    I called Boston Common last night to ask about midnight shows, and they said they hadn't decided yet to have one or not. ?!?! I don't really understand what there would be to decide. Anyway, they said they will have an answer to that by "end of this week or Monday of next week."
    They need to make up their minds already.

    Here's the thing about those Randolph times, that is a schedule the theater put together based on their recieveing two FILM prints of Episode II. NONE of those times can ever be digital. If (when) they get a digital print, they will ADD times to that schedule, that will be for the DLP room only. So now, the really unfortunate dilemma, is whether or not to assume that A) they will get a digital print and B) that they will show it at midnight, and C) that it will be possible to get tickets to this show, or, whether regular tickets to regular prints should just be purchased. Cool this is not.

    I certainly agree, Rhane-1138, this is the dilema.

    I just called Randolph, and they said yet again that they do not have any info on whether they will indeed get a digital copy.

    The showings that they have tickets form in the listings on movietickets.com are for normal THX film theatres, and as the lady said to me on the phone, if they are to add a DLP showing it will be in addition to the times that they have already posted.

    Plus, they said as of now, they do not have a midnight showing scheduled.

    Maybe they will get a digital copy and maybe they will have a midnight showing.

    Or maybe I'll be abducted by aliens in a field in South Boston, anything is certainly possible!

    I just wish these cinema's would really make up their mids, this is beginning to become a circus, starwars fans looking for info on where and when they can see George Lucas's latest StarWars flick in digital, preferably at a midnight showing.

    Either way, I hope that they notify the cinema soon as if they delat it any longer, all the tickets for the regular showings at Randolph will be all sold out!

    ho hum, what is a starwars fan to do?

    BUT there is a but...

    I called Randolph, and they say that they are NOT DIGITAL, and there is still no more info on whether they will indeed get a digital copy, EVEN THOUGH they are one of only two theatres in MASS that have a digital theatre.

    I also asked, that if fans purchase tickets for these midnight showings, can they switch over to the digital theatre if and when a digital copy is put in the schedule. the answer was NO, unless there are spare seats that have not been sold out in the digital theatre!

    The lady also said that the theatre is small, smaller than the rest of the theatres in the Randolph complex and that some people have actually complained about this fact alone.

    So what do we do? Purchase tickets or wait it out and see if they do indeed get a release schedule for a digital copy?

    Think I'll hold out in the hope that they do have AOTC added to the schedule for a digital copy, it's either that or see about getting tickets for the Framingham theatre for the weekend to be able to see this movie in Digital.

    Digital tickets...

    OK, I called the AMC Framingham 15 and CURRENTLY they have tickets available for showings on friday and saturday (friday 7pm is sold out as well as all the showings for the Thursday and of course the two midnight showings!)

    The key to this is that the tickets listed on movietickets.com ARE ALL DIGITAL, as confirmed by my call to the cinema.

    The TWO midnight showings at AMC Framingham, are presented in Digital and normal THX film, so those lucky enough to have tickets for the 12:01 Digital are very very lucky starwars fans!

    If Randolph does not make up their minds very very soon, I'm seriously thinking of getting tickets for a showing possibly on saturday at Framingham so at least I can see the movie in digital, but tickets will most probably go very quickly.

    So Randolph, if you want my and other starwars fans business, I SUGGEST you get your act together, and possibly make some sort of DECISION as you are possibly going to loose the business of those those fans like myself who want to see the film digital and do have the means to travel to the only other digital enabled cinema, Framingham, it's going to be a honk from Quincy, but I think it would be well worth the road trip!

    THere are still showings available at the Loews during the day of the 16th. Of course, that isn't good for me, I already took the 15th but not the 16th off work...I want a midnight showing and I want the tix now!

    Loews Boston Common midnight tix for 5/15 are available!

    Well, I just picked up my midnight tix at Loews Boston Common. They say it should show up on Fandango tonight sometime (hopefully), but they ARE selling them at the theater - I just got back from there. Don't worry, there's no line or anything (probably cause no one really knew ahead of time).
    BTW, it's in theater 2. When I bought, they said there were still about 580 seats out of 650 left.

    Ahh, now I can rest easy for the next few days...

    Who in their right mind begins selling tix at the box office before putting them up online?
