HERES THE DEAL ONCE AND FOR ALL. The movie is at 12:01 am thursday, May 19, which is right after waiting in line on wednesday, May 18. The movie theaters consider their "day" from when they open around noonish, untill they close at 1,2 or 3am technically the next day. But, they consider all those ticket sales as the "18th" even though it is the 19th. So, the date on the ticket does not mean the day the movie plays on, it is the date that those sales are tabulated for. That got me in trouble for AOTC. I showed up a day early expecting to see it that night. I learned that day what it all really means.
