    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.

    Six weeks in line? nah, I find that I can buy a ticket for an afternoon matinee the day it opens and not fight the crowds. Though I'd be up for a midnight show with friends.

    This will be a whole new experience for me. I'll be working in the movie theater this time around instead of waiting in line. Maybe I can take some vacation for opening weekend.?

    Well, if it helps, I hate you a lot for being here. And even when you aren't...

    That makes a lot more sense! I was wondering who had the time/money to be in line that long!
    Having never lived somewhere that these things happen, I don't really know how it works. I think we lined up 6 or 7 hours before midnight for ROTS and were pretty close to the front.

    I could do several days, though I would like to find some people who would do it with me seeing as my roommates have already said no. :p

    I'll grab tickets for the midnight showing for sure. My son will be 8 by then and he can come along. No way I'll ever wait in line again. That's a young person's game.

    Aren't you a manager or something? Can't you just find some discrete reason to watch the film from the projection booth? :p

    hey! how come I'm a flippin' 'jedi youngling' when I joined in March 2001?
    Still, I really shouldn't complain about being mistaken for a youngster...

    Yeah I run a movie theater, so I am da boss here. Oh I'm not saying that I won't be watching it early but I won't be with all my old friends this time. I live in a totally different part of the country now. TFN party in Salt Lake City at my movie theater?!

    Yeah, sure, partaaaay! I understand the thing about not being able to see it with old friends. We were still in junior high and high school when my friends and I saw AOTC and ROTS. Now we're all over the country. :(

    Anyone know any good babysitters? I'll need one in 3 years so I can get in line for Ep VII. Or I'm strapping the kid on like Dagobah Luke did with Yoda. Either way, count me in!

    I will definitely do the midnight showing, visiting the line (assuming there is one) a few times when I can slip away from work.

    The only li e I ever spent serious time at was the AOTC one and it was a lot of fun.

    I was in all 3 PT lines and did the midnight showing for every film since the "special" editions. I did regular, old fashioned ticket buying in 77-83.

    I wonder if Episode VII will be shown in IMAX. That could be spectacular.

    Isn't 4 or 5 a little young for a Mos Def concert? Especially one that starts at midnight?
