    I will have a banner of some sort for the midnight queue. Someone is bringing t-shirts as well so look for those if you need to find us.

    (who is bringing the shirts by the way?)

    I'm working on getting us all in at once to the variety showing. I'll give you some info on that tonight.

    Security has requested that the line start to the left of the ticket booth and progress up towards heritage park (to you left if facing the cinema). I plan to start the variety line next to that so we can be together.

    More info on line pending (I have to contact security when I get home from school).

    Hoyts has explicitly stated that the outside line will not be let inside until they have dismantled whatever is set up for the Variety showing. Even if they did lets us in earlier they'd have to kick everyone out then anyway so there is little point pressing the issue. If it rains we might be able to find some cover (any suggestions for those who know their way around Fox Studios) else bring plenty of umbrellas...

    ...and smile anyway - it's Star Wars!

    That reminds me, who's bringing their car?

    We're not allowed go be in costume for the Variety showing so I'll have to stash my stuff until after I come out of that.

    I'll be there around 9ish still. I havent met you earlybirds yet, so I might have a hard time finding you?

    Hence, maybe you can find me...I'll approach the queue....I'll be dressed as Dooku, however my beard is black, I will have my cape in hand (not wearing it yet), and a Dooku sabre as well...

    Any chance if you see me, you can just yell out to me?

    EDIT: My cousin might be with me at that stage...if he is, I think he will be going as Sidious, so we would be easy to spot.

    Oh yeah! My yr co-ordinator is the best!

    He's this old guy who's the coolest. I found out he was the one who tore up my detention form, which means I'll be there an hour early tommorow :)

    Scream Man Here:
    OK, so we can line up then. Damn i wish the people who worked at hoytes would actually TALK to one another!

    I have a suggerstion for how we can do this whoile group thing. When u get into line, make sure u have atleast 2 other people with you. Then, when people arrive behind u, say that u are there and holding place for a couple of friends.

    When people arrive, no matter when it is, i suggest first going to the first few FFers in line and talking to them. If they say "Join us" u know that they can fit u in there. If they dont bring it up, then move to the next group of FFERs, and so on and so on until u find a group that can reasonably add u to it. That way we'll be filling from the front first and we'll get people in there ASAP>


    Now according to hoyts there are (I think im remembering this right) 15 chairs to a row, so we need 4 rows. Again, dont grab em at the front, get them slightly back of where the absolute best seats are so u doint piss people off to much.

    ok guys will there be a queue for each cinema or one big queue... anyone know?

    Guess 2 queues : 1 for 6.30, 1 for 12.01

    The entry to Hoyts is all through same main entrance - inside you go right for cinemas 1-7 and left for cinemas 8-11 .

    It would be easiest if they filter everyone when they get inside and just have 2 queues outside.


    11.5 Hrs until we start lining up :D

    Ok to answer all questions.

    To find us look for a guy in a read beanie near a guy in a purple jacket (me and my brother).

    There will be two lines as High_Marshell said: one for 6:30 one for 12:01.

    Fox security has decided to revise their plan. Due to shift changes people will not be allowed to enter before 7am. Officially the complex opens at 10am, but management has agreed to let us in if there is not a huge crowd and we don't cause trouble for the cleaning people.

    I definitely like Lumpé's idea. Everyone go with that. If you need info come up to the front of the line and talk to us, well keep abreast of the latest.

    The more people we get there at 7 - 7:30 the better. Hoyts has agreed to allow us to save rows as Lumpé suggested if we have about 7 or 8 people there in the early bunch.

    I'll still be at Fox around 6:30 to check things out, if anyone is arriving then. The entrance we will be using is Gate A. If we assemble there security should let us in at 7 as planned.

    Please ask questions in case I've forgotten anything important.
