    Depending on work schedule: I'd like 2 attend atleast one showing...."Two Towers" was the worst theatre experiences of my life: a friend and his friend @ last min. decided to go, and I sat next 2 "Popcorn Muncher boy"...I swear, he just came for the popcorn since he went back for another bucket....2 whole buckets!...in a 3 hour film.

    Just be thankful you didn't have the freaking riddler sitting behind you like we did when we went to see Indy. "Why's there a picture of Sean Connery on his desk?" :rolleyes:

    My favorites are still the ones who sit down after apparently swimming in a vat of purfume, then leaving half way thought to reapply.
    I'd only be able to make it for the last one. :( That's a lot of LOTR in one sitting.

    The Riddler!? Frank Gorshin's 1960's Riddler..or the dude from last year's Free Comic book day? Connery was approached by Spielberg for a cameo but declined..stating he was "enjoying retirement 2 much".

    As for a pleasurable experience, during the opening for Indiana Jones & the Last Crusade, "Paramount theatre" was so packed that my best female pal, sat on my lap, through-out the film. "Areosol" hairspray was still in then; 89', and my nostrils were just burning...we were front row.

    I wish I could but I have to be at work before that movie gets out. :(

    It'd be a blast to see those in theater again too.
