    Alright heres the deal for breckenridge, the manager said she does not know when they will know about a midnight showing nor when the tix for normal showings will come out, she suspected at the end of the month she will know.

    I will keep a close eye on this, that is if everyone would like to see a midnight showing

    Im thinking, get tix for evening show on the 19th for rave, and if breckenridge gets a midnight showing sell the rave tix on ebay or just go to both showings

    I just called the rave and they said they still were not sure and to call back in three days....


    EDIT: dude we should totally try to work something out with the rave. I mean we are an offical fan club. There has got to be some way. We should get Henry to go up there, or anyone for that matter and have a One on one conversation with the manager.

    We can try that, but the manager was very stern that they would not have a midnight showing

    Perhaps if we all went out but only had henry talk one-on-one

    I'm down.


    We are going to have a midnight showing for ROTS


    I don't care where it is.

    Hell, I may even call the small theater here in Cabot if I have too.

    Come to Memphis. If Rave is going to be stupid and turn down obvious profits that kind of event would generate (not necessarily that night, but in publicity), then we should forget 'em. Go to Memphis and make that event that much better!

    Oooo...going to Memphis would be really cool.



    If henry goes to talk to the manager, he needs to wear his armor and whip some managerial a**.

    Yeah but if I wear the arnor and he gets mad I cant run. And you know that we Trooper turn and run. It sounds like a good idea but I cant get to the Rave till at least Saturday, maybe later (I hate living away from the action). I had already thought about Memphis if no one around here is doing it. Even though Im blowing all my vaction days on CIII. I would still take off to go to Memphis and hang out with the Memphis Fan FOrce again there all really cool cant wait till summer and drive in nights start up again.

    Wait, before we jump the gun to Memphis let's look around. While Memphis has extraordinary DLP theater, I am not sure I'll make that kinda drive for a midnight showing.

    I am getting confused by who all has had discussions with the Rave management team. Who has talked to him/her and when? It is all about approach, people. If we jump ahead of ourselves and start massively calling management, we won't get a midnight showing... period. Henry needs to set up a meeting, if he hasn't already. Most of this is about explanation and purpose. Radio/TV stations need to be called. If they want a showing, Rave will do it - hands down. There may still be hope yet if this is handled professionally - not by bombarding them with phone calls.

    Greg, are any of the theaters here in Hot Springs plan on showing ROTS at midnight? If so, we could manage it here. I know that would be a drive for some of you, but it beats us down here making a 4-5 hour drive to Memphis.

    I don't see a reason WHY the Rave WOULD NOT do a midnight showing. The Trilogy showing of LotR was awesome and the turn out was spectacular. So I have faith that they will do it, but we must not keep bombarding them with calls that's for sure. Cuz when I talked with the gentleman back last month (mid Mar) he didn't know, but he saw no reason why they wouldn't be able too.

    So let's wait and do this 'professionally' ;) Juz please keep us in the loop is all I ask.

    I don't know. I think that we should call them and ask them what can we do to help out the sitiuation. If there is anything we, fan force, can do to show them that a midnight showing will be worth it. I don't know if they are affraid of the turn out or what, but we need to do whatever it takes.


    If they say No for sure. We should start a petition.

    When I talked to someone last night, as I said, she told me to call back in 3 days.


    I think the more we call, the more they will realize that a midnight showing is an awesome idea...


    If it comes down to it, is any one intrested in having one at Cabot?? Or maybe Conway????

Its early but who would be interested in showing up around 10:30 in costume to get tickets. I may go real early just cepends on if I have to work Friday night or not.

    This Fri? Don't think I'll be able to...which bites. (Since I'm taking off Wed - Fri next week)

    I'll have to some how swing by to get tickets. I guess we have to specifically ask for those correct?

    [face_thinking] I'll have to swing by after work Fri to pick mine up. I don't get off until 4ish PM.

    I figured they'd do it, I mean why wouldn't they? They did the Trilogy showing for all 3 LotR and man did that rock!!!

    Can't wait :) C3 Next week and Ep 3 the next month!

    I'll be seeing Episode III at midnight opening day at the same place I saw Episodes I and II at midnight opening day...on the digital screen at the Malco Majestic in Memphis! Well, it wasn't digital for Episode I, but it was for Episode II. And I was amazed at the quality and how there were NONE of those dad-gum cracks and pops that you occasionally see and hear when you see a movie on film.

    (Of course, it helps that I only live an hour away from Memphis, and I live two and a half hours from Little Rock. ;))

    Ramon is supposed to be picking mine, his, and Duncan's (my kid) up at the Rave. He hasn't called me yet to tell me whether those tickets were for the midnight showing or juz showing times in general.
