    :_| the current forecast calls for rain on wednesday night :_|

    i don't know how it was here in sydney but it rained in line for tpm where i was which really sucked.

    [fingers crossed] let's hope things change [/fingers crossed]

    oh well... if it does, we can reenact the scene from the trailer ;)

    Blast Hoyts and their inaccurate information!

    If only my isp didn't go down last night I could have prevented this panic.

    There WILL be an outside line, security is organising it, we will be first in it.

    Nothing has changed. Hoyts have NO control over the line, where we can line up, or when we can start. They have NO power to disband any line that is started. Security have the final say and while they said final details will not be in till tonight, there WILL BE A LINE.

    I will be starting it around 6am (ish) and would love some company. Oblio are you still in?

    There will also be a queue for the Variety showing which my brother will start at 6 as well. Relief for that would also be appreciated.

    Hoyts has refused to make arrangements for groups so they suggested that if we can get 7 or 8 people in by 7am then when midnight comes we will be allowed to use those people to reserve seats for everyone else in the cinema (by authority of the duty manager).

    Nothing has changed from before Scream's hasty post. We do need about 7-8 people in by 7am so if you can still get there early please do.

    I will post details about how to enter the complex tonight (regardless of whether my isp is working) for those of you going before 7:30am.

    If I think of any other info before then I'll post it.

    Nice work Sai. If security allows the line, Hoyts can't do jack all about it. :D

    I had an umbrella listed on my AOTC checklist a few days ago. Just in case. ;)

    Good stuff!

    Yeah, I think I'll bring an umbrella as well.

    Does anyone know how much it costs to park at Fox from Wed to Thur?

    I'm not gonna park in the pay parking at Fox. Not until after 6pm when they change to a flat fee of $5.50 all night. During the day I'm gonna be parking on Lang Road, there's usually quite a few spaces just up from the Fox entrance. :D

    They also said Saturday would be fine and it rained all day on me while I was fishing. The Force is weak with the weather bureau, hard to predict the weather is, always in motion.

    Ahem.

    I don't know you guys from a bar of soap, so can someone please PM me with a mobile number as a last ditch method of contact just in case I can't find you all?

    Or will you stand out like the proverbial dog's u-know-whats?

    in the am: we'll probably stick out like the proverbial appendage (being the loud group bunched together in some quasipseudoqueuey type line thingie, quoting sw like crazy and raising a few eyebrows with the fox security).


    in the evening: i won't have my mobile *with* me (unsnaps blaster in holster) though i get the feeling i'll be the one most people look for (for some strange reason...) before i get there - i dunno, look for the loud group bunched together who stick out like the proverbial appendage...

    Will be there bright and early :D

    Went there last night to pick up my tickets.
    The line will probably filter left (facing cinema) if outside - large area up to the 'grassy knowl' :)

    Opposite cinema is seating area for food, next to cinema is Sports Bar - Though dont think can get drinks at 6.00am :(

    Will be ther for both performances. 6.30 am in Cinema 1. Then the 12.01 am in Cinema 7.

    Parking after 6 is $5.50 flat rate to 3.00am *should finish by then.

    During day Max charge is $22. (hope they wont charge the exted 5.50 if there early).

    Pity didnt come as Ackbar - He would like the water/rain!

    If we were ther early they may even let us queue inside if rain pleeeze :(

    p.s.Thinks, Kings has one Lightsabre left CountD's - saw it in the window , if anyone still need one.

    mobile number sent as requested

    i figure i'll only have it for another couple of months, so if a stalker gets a hold of it, then i'll just have to ward them off for a little bit

    oops... to late :p

    Don't worry about me. My stalking list is already full, what with Elle McPherson, Gwen Stefani, Kylie Minogue, Nicole Kidman......

    To busy to add another, sorry.

    Hey there Midnight Session people! :)

    I'll be in the Variety queue from about 2pm onwards (though I'm not going to the midnight screening after) and I will definitely keep an eye out for you guys as I'd love to say hi to y'all (if it's possible to leave my spot in the queue that is). ;)

    Are any of you going to have a FFNSW sign or anything? Or am I correct in assuming it ain't gonna be too hard picking you out of the crowd? :D
