    I have a thought that my Paranoid Personality has come up with. And forgive me if this has been mentioned before. But with the advent of online movie ticket sales, has anyone asked around as to whether or not this will thwart our wonderful line experience. It would be a real drag to have us all in line for midnight showing only to find that some of us get the shaft because of online ticket sales. Jay, since you seem to be taking charge of the line organizing, something to ask the theaters about? Part of what made the TPM release so fun and memorable was the line. I remember sitting on the sidewalk watching a Pacers Game on Jay's portable tv with what looked to be an approaching monsoon on the horizon. Good times. Anyone else from the first Galaxy line on this board?

    I will post this in both threads. I had a meeting at one of the theaters today. Very cool and very accomodating. They even gave me a screening of the Clone Wars trailer and jacked up the volume. SWEEEEEEET!

    Anyway, we will have our choice of three theaters, 180, 225 or 300 seats. So, what this means is, we need to get anyone and everyone to go to this because I want the big theater!!!

    So, ask everyone you know to see if they would want to go. We will just need to pay for the tickets in advance and they will save us our own PRIVATE theater. I was also thinking about incorporating the fund-raiser in this but we will discuss that later.

    I have a follow-up meeting on Thursday and I will give everyone another update.

    Very exciting stuff!!!

    I will drag people in off the street if I have to so we can get the big theater!!
    I think we can do it. We're a dedicated bunch! :)
    And what are the chances you can get the rest of us a private AOTC trailer screening with the volume jacked????????? I want one!
    AAAGH! You just HAD to tease us, didn't you???
    :D

    That's good news because I've realized that I've got to up the number of tickets I would like to at least ten. I'm here to help. ;)

    Hey if every member brought 5 people, we'd have 300. I don't think this will be a problem.

    As soon as you get the information, send me an organized copy and I will set you up with a page on the website :)

    Filling that theatre will not be a problem. I already have definites from almost all my people. Heck I may need more. So really now it's just looking like we should hope that we won't have overflow. :) This is so going to rock. Great job you're doing Jay!

    MAJOR UPDATE...

    Here we go. We are confirmed for our own PRIVATE theater for the midnight showing at the General Cinema Greenwood 14 Theater just south of the Greenwood Park Mall. We can have their largest theater if we can get at least 280 tickets sold (it is a 300 seat theater).

    For those of you not familiar with the theater, with the exception of the IMAX, the screen in our theater is the largest in the city. DTS Surround Sound and all stadium seating. All we have to do is collect the ticket fees before they go on sale so that we can purchase them all at the same time when they do go on sale, which will probably be a week or two before the release.

    In addition, the theater reps are allowing us to put up our Indy Knights banner during the line-up as well as hand out business cards.

    Even sweeter, they are going to allow us to put our Reiley Fund Raiser Buckets (to collect donations) on their concession stands during the line-up. Also, we are working on two other HUGE, HUGE, HUGE things that I am not at liberty to mention here on the boards. So, be at the April general meeting. ;)

    So now it is time to talk to every person you know so that we can get the large theater. Big props to Tom for the hook-up. Now lets sell some tickets!!!

    Excellent, I will bank on you being in uniform. The mall might want to get involved as well so you might have to make some appearances over there as well. But, I have a feeling you will be able to handle it.

    And in the immortal words of TK-616...

    Late,

    Count me in for sure. I will need at least 4 tickets for sure right now. Probably more as time goes on. I have a large group to solicit in case we run short of the 280, but that doesn't sound like a problem.
