    there are a few who camp out at Dole Signature Theaters. Eric will be there first day with his R2 unit, I think. He was for Ep2. I normally go to first day showing in the evening after work, so the earliest I'd be there is about 5 PM or so, and that's with taking a few hours off from work early.

    I'm sleeping at Ward so I can be close to Other Realms. I know a few people there, so I will say hi and go to sleep in front of the movies

    Hello, zekk_64, mac-nut & everyone.

    I was planning to shoot some footage of the people in line for Episode III to add to my "Starwoids: Hawai'i Style" film project. I hope people will be cool / okay with that.

    If you've seen Starwoids, you're familiar with the idea. If not, I highly recommend it!

    Best wishes,
    Jay Tee Erricck

    P.S. I don't plan to necessarily camp out the night before but I AM taking the entire day off so I can go see it with friends. If there is a midnight showing that morning, maybe I'll go!

    Dole always has a midnight showing. Don't know about Consolidated (Ward).

    mac-nut,

    Thank you for that info! Good to know.

    I'd like to shoot some footage of the line(s) [not just the Dole theatre]. I requested May 19th off but, unfortunately, I will probably have to work until 11 p.m. the night before AND I'll probably have to work on the 20th so my time allowed to shoot movie lines will be limited. Still hoping to get some of that done.

    Would try to get more time off from work but, by then, I'll have already used up my earned vacation time / days off going to Celebration III so I will just have to rely on the very little free time I will have between work-shifts.

    Best wishes,
    Jay Tee Erricck

    Well I I hope we all have a blast or I am going to go crazy! Let's pray this movie we'll beat all of the prequels. May the Force be with us.

    if there's a midnight showing somewhere jason and i will try to go (unless he has to work). i know when ep II came out i worked at a movie theater and they wouldn't let people get in line until 9pm the day of the midnight showing. i worked all day and then got off work and got in line [face_laugh] that was the deal so i didn't have to work that night.

    i can't camp out in line really though because of my little one... the day of for a few hours is my limit sadly :(

    Hello, Everyone!

    1) zekk_64, I think Revenge of the Sith will be great but I think all Star Wars fans should keep in mind that Lucas (or was it McCallum?) that said Episode III will be THE MOST depressing of all the Star Wars films, old or recent. Many fans know what to expect since all the clues were laid out by the original trilogy. The question is: How much of what we know happened will Lucas actually show us on screen?

    I'm trying to mentally prepare myself for a very depressing movie but, yet, it is a story that needs to be told to bridge the original & prequel trilogies. In short, I'm still looking forward to see this movie. But, what SW fan isn't? It will be a bittersweet feeling, though, I'm sure. We will finally get to see it but we will also know that "This is it". Most likely NO MORE new Star Wars movies. Perhaps we can discuss the rumors / non-rumors regarding Episodes VII, VIII & IX in another post string!

    2) Nanashi & mac-nut, If Dole is the only place with a 12 midnight showing, I'll be there. Look for the guy with the video camera trying to shoot footage of the line. Even if I don't manage to get IN to the theatre for the show, I'll be there outside trying to build toward my film.

    That's it for me for now, gang! Looking forward to continually see you all here in the posts!

    Best wishes,
    Jay Tee

    Welcome to the least active board on TF.N my friend. ;)

    As for the release, I'll be at Dole trying to get in as well. It might be a mad house tho.

    Hi. About how early would one have to go the theaters to get good seats at a midnight showing? I've never been to one. But I plan on taking the next day off so I can watch it. Thanks
