    Ok so the old thread I started way back in September got locked or something. Tickets go on sale for this on June 1st and I was just wondering if you any of you had any extra info on it. I've been looking around to see if there is going to be a special midnight opening or big to do with costumed people and such but I haven't found anything except rumors about it. You guys planning on going to this as a group at all? Philly Outer Rim is trying to still get a few us together to make the trip up. Anyway, here's the site: http://www.mos.org/lotr/

    (who a couple of you met at EFF...snow bunny Padme...ring a bell?)

    Hi Natasha,

    Yes I remember you from the EFF. And let's see if you remeber me...I was the loud and drunk person hanging out with the NJO.

    Hint #2
    I was sporting the Heineken Sunglasses and Heineken Bikini in the lounge of the hotel at EFF.

    (See Marie at the NJO for all the dirt.)

    I tell you the NJO had their way with me that night.

    I have yet to see a LOTR movie!!!! :eek:

    I know evreryone calm down..calm down..I will see these movies ..now.
    And as strange as this might sound, I can borrow them from my mother. [face_laugh]
    She has them all. Really weird when your mom has seen a blockbuster trilogy before you.

    I look forward to seeing some of the EFF attendees up here and will definetley go with you all.

    Thanks Natasha for stopping by and saying hello.

    -Boston Chris-

    I know exactly who you are, Chris. I was sitting next to you the whole time you were making things to wear out of beer labels. lol.

    Well if any of you find any more info on this please post it for us out-of-towners. We'd love to see you all when we come up, regardless if its at the exhibit or not. Maybe we can arrange a get together outside of that?

    Well, would any of you like to know how to get here/how to get to the MOS? One caveat - driving in or anywhere near Boston is strongly not recommended. ;) You lot are perfectly welcome to keep in touch if you'd care to join us for some event or other. :cool:

    Actually, what I'd most like to get some advice on is where to stay if anyone wants to offer that. I may ask you closer to the date about any directions we may need. So thanks. We'll also be in touch about maybe getting our two groups together. I should go see if any of the people in NJO want in on this too...

    This would be a great idea for our August meet...any comments on that? We really should try to get tickets sometime in the near future if a lot of us want to go on one day. And it would be great if other FF people could come too! We love visitors. :)

    Well, since that's going to be a Saturday at the tail end of summer, I submit that it would probably be so dang crowded we wouldn't even get within eye's reach of the thing. Maybe we could do it on, say, a Friday, if we working stiffs can try and take the day off?

    If crowds turn out to be an issue, we might want to save it for September, as we've got both Sept. and Oct. to check it out. Any of you think you might have prior commitments (work, homework, etc.) at that point?

    In the event that we go as a group in August.. I would like to go on a tuesday, since my vacation time for LABOR DAY WEEKEND for Dragoncon will prevent me from getting any saturdays off that month....

    Must it be a saturday, then the last one before I go on vacation then.... then weekend before Dragoncon....

    Time to go watch Eurotrip on DVD .... chat with you all soon.

    Ok, update on this: If you go to the link I listed in my first post for the exhibit, it now lists that there is a special Midnight preview for this in which tickets are only $5 as opposed to $19 for normal hours. They are encouraging people to show up in costume. I will definately have to break out my Hobbit gear again for this. ;) Anyway, tickets are now on sale. I would advise getting them soon, as in the past with this exhibit in other places, it has sold out quickly. I bought mine today for the first time slot at 12:01am.

    I guess you can buy them til they are sold out. And I have no idea when that will be. Possibly already.

    Oh Cool. I had heard a while ago about this but now it is really coming up. Fun fun. We will definitely try to go with the group when the date is decided on. :) :) (unless you all go to a midnight thing or something, LOL, I go to bed early!) I have a Galadriel costume, but unfortunately, I cut my hair! ;)

    Public transportation is definitely the way to go... the green line subway goes directly to the museum. Parking around there is a nightmare!

    I'd like to go too.

    I'm hoping for a look at Haldir's sword.

    If we want to go as a group we need to decide what days of the week are best. If you give me an idea of what days of what months would work for you guys, I can start a poll and we can all vote. So start posting if you want to go! Any day will work for me most likely.

    I know that August would be better for me. In keeping with the standard date of meets, the 3rd Saturday of August is the 21st. I randomly clicked on the different times for that day and tickets still seem to be available for all times.

    In case anyone's wondering, I'm withholding my desired date and time because there's a chance I'll be moving out of the area this summer. I'll know at the beginning of next month and be sure to convey it to all.
