Well they weren't actually there there for 6 weeks. The line existed for 6 weeks, with people coming when they were off work or got out of class. They then logged their times so they could keep track of who was actually first in line. I don't recall leading up to the film how many days they were actually there. I know we did a 3 day line-up. I was there all 3 days, but went back home each night to sleep in my bed as I had laryngitis.
