    I was going to wait until Hoyts at Fox could at least give me a date on ticket sales, but since they seem to be content with 'three weeks before the movie comes out', I don't think that will be happening any time soon.

    The purpose of this thread is simple:

    1. To work out which session/s we want to go to
    2. To make sure the location is good for most people, and if not to find something else
    3. To work out what else we want to do in relation to this movie
    and
    4. To see if there is anyone who wants to volunteer to help out with any particular aspect. (this could be anything from tickets to advertising to annoying me for details...although I'd really hope the last one isn't a popular one. ;) )

    So, ideas, suggestions, thoughts...put them all here. :)

    1. 12:01am, 16 May 2002.
    2. Fox would be excellent. If it's too far for some we could see if anyone is willing to let peeps crash at their place.
    3. Open to ideas. I might go in costume (if I ever get mine made), anyone else gonna do that?
    4. I'm willing to help out. Need me to spend a day in a ticket line? I'll try clear my scheduel. ;)

    Also is anyone from outside of Sydney coming in for this event? ?[face_plain]

    Fox Studios would be the ideal

    THAT I will call you on. :D

    And Fox would be great...I'm calling them constantly, they still won't give me a date and time for ticket sales. Think they're getting a little annoyed with me. ;)

    It's prety hard for me to say if I can help out or if I can even make it down there that night. I'll have to see.

    Naw, I think I will be going with friend. Probably to the city, so count me out.

    Although if you go to the city, I can hold a place in line or something.

    Fox Studios 12:01 on May 16 sounds great to me.

    As for waiting in a line I probably wont be ablr to do that due to work and family. Although if anyone wants to line up on the day/night I'm sure I can help out with this. Just to make sure we get premo seats! :D

    I'll do what I can.

    I'll assault cinema staff.
    I'll line-up if I can.
    I'll chase Lucas to the ends of the Earth.

    well.. maybe to the end of the suburb... but it's the idea that counts, right?

    Honestly, I'll do what I can - my involvement will be directly proportional to my other commitments.

    I can line up for tickets, seats, whatever. Some of us are going in costume (including me) - we should ask the cinemas if we can get any sort of a deal (like head of line or something crazy) for being in costume.

    A big thing will be what are we going to do AFTER the movie? Getting home on public transport could be difficult for people (I'm pretty sure my bus stops between 2 and 6 or something). Some of us will have cars, perhaps we should organise car pools home? Or do people want to hang around? In that case we should investigate what is open and clean in the vicinity at that time of the day (ie nowhere in nearby Kings Cross). I think it's important that no one be stuck anywhere alone at that time of night.

    The only deal you might get is for the TV crews to put you on the news. There will be so many people dressing up that yet another bunch wont make them want to do anything special for you.

    AFTER the movie is going to be just plain evil. Heh, I would love to see you try to get a taxi if you are dressed up ;)

    if all goes well i can do some lining up, though im new here and not met anyone (hopefully that will change soon) i dont mind waiting in line, i was thinking of going in costume, most likely as a jedi its fairly easy to do.

    I wanted to go as a Gungan Jedi, but owing to the fact that I don't have jedi robes, or gungan head/hands there's almost no way I'll be going to ep2 as a Jedi.

    So I thought about what I had.

    My new costume consists of:
    Pin-stripe Suit,
    Nice Shirt and Tie,
    Long Black Overcoat.

    I'm going as a SW-type gangster. All I need is a blaster pistol :D

    I'll more than likely be driving so I should be able to pick up/drop off people if they want.

    UNLESS we all decide to start "drinking" before the movie then I'll have to train it in and get home what ever way I can.

    *****3am May 16*****

    "Hi honey, did I wake you? Oh sorry, honeeyyy can you pick me up? Pleeaasssee??"

    Well we don't have to go to just one session - we can go to as many as we want, really. :D

    So for the peolpe still at school, maybe we should do a Friday night/Saturday one instead?

    Im good to go for the Midnight one, but I aint going in costume.

    I say we see a Saturday one as well, for those who are freedom impaired. We can go and then grab a bite ti eat or whatever. Though for the Saturday one maybe a diff cinema.

    I know Lins being toying with the idea of a meet at her place. Anyone else wanna go to Maquarie Centre n see it?

    Yeah, two sessions would be great. :)

    I wouldn't wanna go drinking on AOTC night. I'd rather watch it sober for the first time. So I've got 4 spaces in my car for anyone living between Fox and the Shire. :D

    if i catch the train, depends if my sister is working or not, then i will most likely go drinking after ep2. There are no trains home for a few hours afterwards so i may as well have some fun.
