    Who was there last time? Who's gonna be there this time?

    I was there the night before tickets went on sale...that was just an awesome experience. Remember the big chalk drawing on the ground? The 12th happened to be my birthday (I've been trying ever so hard to forget this) so several people broke out in a chorus of "Happy Birthday"...I wanted to beat that guy with my plastic lightsaber so hard....heh

    Anyway, I'll be out there again this year, and earlier too. We're talking about going in the morning the day before tickets go on sale.

    I think it's the first week of May. But, I've got a load of exams and whatnot in late April through early May, so I'm just going to have to see the thing later.

    Welcome home, BattleDroidOOM9. The consensus seems to be that most are going to the AMC 24 over in Hampton on opening night. I'm not sure of the exact address, but it's off of Hampton Center Parkway, or thereabouts. Not too hard to find.

    I called today. They don't know when tickets will go on sale, or about 12:01 showings cause they haven't received that info, but they expect to receive it by May 3.

    I've been calling around as well...and thus far, no theater is releasing ticket sale date. Grrrrrrr. Perhaps the worst, and most surprising, news is that the Commodore Theater over in Portsmouth will not be carring AOTC. :_|

    AMC says tickets go on sale May 3 but they didn't know at what time, or even what the showtimes would be this afternoon. Sad. I want my 12:01!!!!!

    Did you check online, or went to the theatre? I checked online saturday and they said that they were sold out, but when i went there later that night they still had midnight tickets.

    I checked online and called the theatre. It is currently sold out for the first show but they are getting 3 more prints. They said call back tomorrow or Wed just to make sure they're gonna show more than 2 screens at midnite and I should get tickets.

    WoooHooo!!! I just went back to MovieTickets.Com(I felt a disturbance in the force) and they had tickets available. I'll be there for the 12:01! What time are we showing up to start the line? Has anybody talked to theatre admin yet? I'd be happy to contact them and organize so this can be fun and all legit and stuff.

    Unfortunately, I got a little too distracted studying for final exams this weekend and failed to get tickets to the 12:01 showing at AMC 24. *wailing and gnashing teeth*

    Did manage to get a few for the 12:01 showing at the Pembroke Regal. Better than nothing, I suppose.

    The AMC24 has been adding 12:01 showings. Just today I bought tickets on MovieTickets.com

    When I was last there, two of the three shows were grayed out showing not available but now all three show available. Go figure.

    https://www.movietickets.com/pre_purchase.asp?house_id=4740&movie_id=26243&ShowDate=5

    In any case, I too am interested in having someone to chat with while in line as I can't get my wife and 20 month old out of the house that late. ;-)

    Does anyone know the best way to get good seats for something like this? Could you watch Spider-Man at 9:30 and go straight to the 12:01 show without gong back outside?

    Any insight?

    Dude, I showed up at 10:50 for lord of the rings and the theater was already half full. So, if you see spidey at 9:30, then come to see episode ii, then you will be stuck in the front row.

    I just got off the phone with the AMC24 office. They will start seating the 12:01 shows at 8:00 PM!

    OK, since I have noone coming with me, is there anyone our there that wants to meet early and save each other's seats for bathroom breaks etc?

    I don't know if I want to get there at 8 but I'd be willing to show up at 10. That should (I hope) give us decent seats.

    Any takers?

    Oh and the 12:01 shows are definitely sold out now.
