    So, any news when selling tickets?
    I would not be surprised there will be a triple dip when the 4th film is released on DVD.

    Don't know about that, but I did see a phone number for group tickets on one of the Indy standees in the theater lobby: 1-877-PAR-GRP5

    So did you call the number Matt and find out what the deal is? Just wondering if groups of us should be using that number to get tickets for a particular showing :) And how many people constitute a group. It would be nice if like, 4-5 people were considered a group so we don't have a Carrie Fisher repeat. That was like herding cats. LOL!

    I've been keeping an eye on the various showtimes on Fandango.com. The times in SF tend to pop up last, especially the Metreon. Right now, there is nothing up for Indy. But I will keep an eye on it and can post something when I see something. It sounds like people are going to split up to go to Iron Man. Speed Racer is going to be playing in Imax so do we want to try and make a group for that?

    According the the SF Chronicle today, tickets for INDY go on sale MAY 2. So will it be downtown in either Metreon or Westfield, or will we see it guaranteed in DIGITAL at Tanforan?

    Indy opens on a Thursday, and you know there'll be midnight shows. I'm sure most (if not all) of us will see it more than once too. The question is WHEN do we see it? It'll also give us a chance for an "informal" meeting either before or after the movie. Unlike Metreon, the Tanforan theater has cheaper food options, free parking, and is also next to a BART station. The only reason I'd go to Metreon is if it's IMAX. That's just me.

    Hey, that rhymes! :p

    I could go for Tanforan, but if they show a special screening in IMAX at Metreon, I'll see it there too.

    Showtimes are up for the Century 9 in SF (across the street from Metreon):


    Wed/Thu (5/21-22): 12:01 am

    Thu (5/22): 8:05, 8:35, 9:25

    Fri (5/23): 7:30, 8:05, 8:35, 9:25



    I'm thinking of waiting for the showtimes at Tanforan because its guaranteed to be in digital and has free parking, but I'll go with what the majority says. Besides, I'll be seeing it more than once anyway. :)

    Tanforan is closer a lot of us from San Jose. But can people from San Francisco make it out there? I'm fine with anything, I just hope a decision is made before tickets sell out :(

    Some showtimes are up now for Century Tanforan (San Bruno). There's a 12:01 am Wed/Thu, 5/21, and 7:00 and 10:00 pm for Thursday and Friday. Not sure if there'll be more showtimes added or not, but that's what's out there now. We could do a 10:00 pm and eat and have an informal meeting before the movie. [face_thinking]

    The theater is short walk from the San Bruno BART station, and like I said, parking is free! There's a parking structure by Sears, and if you go to the third floor, there's a walkway that takes you directly to the box office and theaters, which are directly above the food court.

    Matt, do you mean you got tickets for Wednesday night/early Thursday morning? I'm about to buy my ticket, but the date is listed as Wed May 21st, and you said yours is for May 22nd.

    Our tickets say:

    Thu 12:01 AM 5/22/08

    Auditorium 10



    Have you tried calling the theater to be sure, Kathy? Technically, 12:01 am is on Thursday. I forgot to ask if there will be more than one auditorium showing a midnight show. I can go back to theater and ask if you want.

    I'd like to see it with you guys in the City. Matt -- let me know when you want to see it again. I live 1 block from your job and Metreon.

    I probably won't see it in the City that weekend. For Dale's birthday on Saturday, we might see it again somewhere in the south bay, maybe after Great America or something.

    The New York Times has an interesting article on some of the early reviews that have posted on Ain't it Cool News:

    Well, my ticket print out says "Wednesday May 21st 2008 12:01 am (late Wed night)" Auditorium 10. So yeah, technically Thursday but the ticket sale was for Wednesday evening. There were no show times listed on Fandango for Thursday 12:01am so I figure my ticket is for the same night as yours? Let's put it this way Matt, are you getting to the theater on Wednesday night like I am? LOL!
