Theaters are really trying to move up from the stigma of backrow makeout sessions and sticky floors.
Don't makeout sessions and sticky floors go hand-in-hand?
Actually, California has Bistro-type fare in lots of their theaters too.
"Care for an Italian Pastry and an Expresso before the movie starts madame? [/snotty-'host' voice]"
Mogook, can I dip my strawberries in chocolate syrup and feed them to you?
Luke there is nobody here who is going to drive to Virginia Beach just to get food with their movie, like you are gonna wanna eat during Clones. They have a bulk candy shoppe in the theater in Martinsburg. And nobody should ever get rid of make out places.
I've been thinking. I wouldn't mind seeing the movie at Hoyts West Nursery because there's no mall attached. Someone mentioned they like the idea of going to a theater without a mall, and I'd have to agree. There's a Wendy's close to Hoyts, and we can sneak some nuggets and fries in.
Good idea Mogook, im with ya.
Im going to see Ep.II at Loews(sp?) theatre white marsh.
Mogook and i saw the episode one teaser there, nice place.
Well I'm going to the Annapolis Mall to the Crown theatre for Clones. For me, its the closest and THX-cert. BEsides I have to work Friday after.
Middle-week movies are a pain, I don't know why Lucas schedules releases in the middle of the week like that....
Rick McCallum addressed this saying that most countries have movies opening on Thursdays.
I would like to try and get a census where people want to see the movie. I think it would be nice if we could all get together to see it. Like I mentioned before, I think it would be great to go to a theater with a mall. This way, organization would only have to deal with talking with the theater and not the mall bureaucracy.
Who's interested in seeing the movie at Hoyts West Nursery? It was a great experience with Episode I. There was a good sized line for buying tickets and a line for the opening night. I like it because it's the theater and a large parking lot. And next to the parking lot is a Wendy's. We don't have to worry about a mall. Plus, the theater has stadium seating and digital sound.
I'm up for anywhere that has:
A) Digital THX Sound
B) 12:01 showing
C) hot chicks
Well, at least the first two...
I'll come as a "hot chick" but I wanna see it in Martinsburg, there will be shorter lines.
I'll most likely be seeing it at hoyts west nursery also. Muvico and Crown in annapolis are too much of a pain in the arse to find decent parking in.
Plus, you just can't beat that Wendys.
I work right down the road from the Hoyt's West Nursery. Not only is there a wendy's right across from it, there is a whole slew of fast food joints only about a mile or so away on West Nursery.
Luke and Eva got the right idea, Hoyts is the way to go.
Isbeth, the lines at Hoyts weren't that bad for Episode I. The tickets for Episode I went on sale a week before the release, and I was there that Wednesday. I got in line around 7 am and there was only a few people. As the day went on, a few more people got in line. Around 3pm, the theater let us in and they had us wait inside. Then the tickets went on sale. By this point, there was a good amount of people there to buy tickets.
Also, for the actual day of the showing, which was Tuesday night / Wednesday at 12:01 a.m. I got in line around 7 pm or something to get a good seat. It was a great experience, I went inside and played in the arcade and talked to people in the line. By dark, there was a great line with poeple fighting with lightsabers.
Hey Motterman, there will be digital sound, definitely a 12:01 showing, and I'm sure you'll see some hot chicks.
Hot chicks in whipped cream!
You guys are so lucky you have good theatres to choose from in your parts. I have one poorly built Hoyts, with terrible sound, cramped dirty seating, and NO competition, thus, $9.00 / ticket. I am going to have to drive over an hour to the newly renovated theatre in Rehoboth Beach, DE to get stadium seating, and good sound. Alas, I envy you all having all that choice at your fingertips.
where do you live?
Any one planning to do a digital theater road trip? I dont know of any in this area.
I would love to see the movie with digital projection, but I only think New York and California will have it.
Here's a list of states that have digital projection available:
You can visit [link=http://www.dlp.com/dlp/cinema/where.asp]the DLP site[/link] to get a list of the actual theaters.
The Florida says Pleasure Island. I imagine that's the Pleasure Island of Disney World. So, if anyone has a vacation planned this summer, you may get your chance.
I saw TPM in Burbank, CA on the DLP system. It was the best quality movie experience I ever had. I HIGHLY recommend we road trip somewhere to see AOTC!
That would be quite the road trip, especially for opening day. We would have to leave early Wednesday to be there for the 12:01 showing Thursday morning, then we'd have to drive back. Unless you got a hotel room or something. I think I'm fine seeing my first showing around here.
BTW, what would be the closest place to go?
I was thinking more for like tbe second weekend after the release. BTW, the DLP showings didn't start until after a month or so after TPM's original release, I'm not sure what the plan for the DLP is this time either....
Lucas wants the movie to be shown on digital, so those DLP theaters will probably be showing the movie opening day. His plan was to have all theaters showing the movie be digital, but those expections look a little high.
Judging by your list, Mogook, Jersey looks to be the closest (depending on where in Jersey). Hey maybe Red Bank will have the digital projection (Kevin Smith joke).
