    I was just wondering if we were all gonna try to hook up and watch Spiderman while the Celebration is going on. I know this was discussed at some point, but I couldn't find the thread. I think someone suggested trying to rent a theater if possible.

    Is this in the works by one of the Indy Knights? If not, could it be (hint, hint Shara)?

    Thanks.

    That sounds really cool. Me & my buddy Mark will be gettin ginto town Thursday evening. Maybe there'll be a midnight showing. Everybody would have to wear their SWC2 passes so we can recognize each other. If not Thurday, I know I'd be up for a Friday night showing.

    When it gets a little closer to C2 I'm going to look into if they might have a late showing. They would need to be made aware that there is a huge Sci-Fi/Fantasy related convention right next door anyways. If all else fails, I do know someone who is a General manager at a movie theatre, but it is a bit of a drive.

    so yes, Tobey-Wan, I'm going to look into it. Knowing movies theatres (because I used to work at one), they're not going to plan this far ahead of time. I will try, though, in a month or so.

    Great. We'll be coming into town Thursday night as well (there will be 2 or 3 others with me) so a midnight showing would be cool. Friday or Saturday would work okay as well for us.

    Thanks Shara, I know you're probably really busy along with the other Indy Knights getting prepped for the celebration.

    Sounds like what happened at the Gateway SF/Fantasy convention in St. Louis in 2000. The convention set up a special showing of "The X-Men".

    Well, i highly doubt that WotC/LFL will set up a screening for the C2 attendees. It would be a conflict of interest. I'm sure if the movie theatre knows far enough ahead of time, they'll make sure to have a late show. But I'm sure they would have a late show anyways, just don't know *how* late it would be.

    Cool. I was planning on seeing it when I got back, but if there will be a showing of it that many people from the Celebration are going to, I'll go. :)

    Great idea Tobey-Wan! :)

    There is a 14-theatre theatre located on the top floor of Circle Centre Mall, which is right next to the convention center. The theatre itself is about a block or two away but it's a nice place.

    I highly doubt I will be thinking about Spider-Man at SWC2.

    I will see it some time when I get back home.

    I'd rather see Spider-Man on Friday night rather than midnight Thursday night/Friday morning. I plan to come into Indianapolis on Thursday and would rather be well-rested for the start of Celebration. It'll probably be the only night I get a full night's sleep. ;)

    *giggles* You know I'm getting giddy just thinking about C2 and AotC.

    I hope the Starbucks at ICC stocks up on white chocoloate! Oh well if they don't, there's two more Starbucks within 4-5 blocks of the place that I'm sure can accomodate MysterySith and I nicely :)

    I've been living on Starbucks lately, I should cut down and save a few bucks for SWC2 ;)

    I keep getting to excited for STAR WARS, I almost start to do the R2 happy bounce.

    I'm as psyched about CII as anyone else, but the convention center closes at like 5:00 PM. Might as well do something constructive during that time like watch Spiderman! If there's something SW related going on in the evenings (Fan Force party, etc.), I'll be there since I can always watch Spidey when I get home.

    Maybe this isn't such a big deal for those who didn't grow up watching the Spiderman cartoon on Saturday mornings back in the 80's. All I know is first the X-Men came to the big screen, now Spiderman. Shouldn't a live action GI Joe and Transformers be coming soon?

    It would be a cool idea to go see Spiderman as an event. I agree that LFL or WotC probably would not be in sponsorship of it though. But there should be room parties going on. Anyone heard of any besides the proposed FanForce party?

    You know Indianapolis might have the highest attendance for Spiderman in the country. I know everyone wanted to see it back at Comic Con in San Diego.
    I think it's a great idea to get attendees to go en-mass. ;) Another way to get TF.n/Fan Force and Star Wars a little MORE attention!

    I too am 'giddy' with excitement! ;)

    A bunch of us from CA will be seeing Spidey, most likely friday night. If we could hook up with other fans, awesome. However, SW must come first. As far as we know, there are no official events that night (like the concert on sat) but if something comes up, Spidey's not a big deal. I do have to stick up for the webhead tho. This is my second most anticipated movie of the year.
