    I have created a "line party" page on a LotR website. This forum is listed as the official place to discuss the "line party", so we might be getting some new people over here talking about it. You can add your name to the line party by going [link=http://www.theonering.net/movie/lineparty/displayList.php?id=256]here[/link]

    In this thread you can discuss whatever you would like pertaining to opening night for The Two Towers. If Loews would work with us, perhaps we could have a costume party with the winner recieving free movie passes. I know, I know, that's a really big maybe, but you never know.

    I really REALLY hope I can make it, but im not 100%, I will see it opening day, but maybe not opening night. Opeing night is A.The night of my birthday and B.A school night :( . But heck, maybe dad will be cool about it and let me go. I sure hope, im SO excited for TTT its not even funny.

    Well, apparently the manager that is in charge of 'openings' and such, a lady named Lisa Bliss, is not in, and will not be in until Monday.

    Grr.

    I saw an add for the opening of James Bond at Loews where they are charging $20 for the movie, a buffet and live band. If they can do something like this for James Bond, then I would say it is looking good for The Two Towers. If anyone hears anything please post here ASAP so everyone who wants to go can get tickets.

    (ok, now that midnight tickets won't be going on sale today I am moving my 'today' thread to here with the messages. Just continue any discussion here.)

    I know that we have another thread about this, but I just want to make sure everyonoe who is interested gets a chance to see this before it might be too late, and then this thread can be deleted or moved. Tickets for The Two Towers will be on sale today (Tuesday) after 6pm. As usual, when I called Loews they were not able to confirm if the show times will include a midnight showing, but I will call back later to find out. Again, if they are only selling tickets for the showings during the day, it's a safe bet that tickets for a midnight showing will be on sale at a later date and Loews is just trying to sell out opening day before they announce it.

    =============================================

    It looks like Loews is going with the old "we aren't having a midnight showing" routuine right now in order to trick people into buying tickets for opening day and then having to buy more if they want to see it at midnight. I HATE them. I am confident that tickets will be on sale for midnight soon though and perhaps the padawan in charge of this will be able to find out more info.

    Okay, just talked to my master who just talked to Lisa, the lady in charge. We were afraid that perhaps they would not talk to me just because I sound like a young child (no offense to me.. none taken ^_~)
    They are getting approval for the Midnight showing this Friday, tickets should be on sale either this Friday, or this weekend Sat-Sun-Mon.

    Ok, I will keep tabs on them just in case they get "approval" before Friday.

    Just out of curiosity, is one person going to get the tickets and be reimbersed(sp?) for them, or is it everyone for themselves? Just wondering.

    Midnight tickets are NOW ON SALE! I know, I know, they said Friday but Loews is Loews. They have a buffet showing with normal tickets priced at $20. If you want the VIP tickets please email or PM me and I will give you the info. Some of you I will PM on my own.

    You can't by tickets for the midnight online, at least I don't think you can. Don't wait too long or it could be sold out.

    Yeah Fluke ~ sorry I couldn't post sooner - it seems there's a higher power than Lisa at Loews = goes by the name of Jim. I told him we had between 30 - 60 people interested in the buffet and midnight showing and if we didn't have answer by today we were going to Distinta = I got a call back within an hour saying they were doing the midnight thingy :D Guess money does talk :D I just didn't get a chance to get online last night sorry = my bad

    Well, I for one am glad Loews appears to be listening. Looks like they are finally grasping the idea of customer satisfaction.

    Fluke count me and my fiancee in. If you can get tickets for me great, if not, please PM me with the info today by 2pm. (I'll be getting out of work early and will be out of the city for the holiday, as well, I won't be on the boards til next Monday.)

    Okay, I already reserved mine on Wednesday. This is how they're doing it, in case you guys aren't familiar with the way they're doing it. They did it the same way for Ep. II.
    You can call with your credit card/visit with credit card or cash..
    Once you call, they will ask for your last name, first, and a telephone number.
    What they do is put however much you paid (as in $20, $25, whatever) in as gift certificates in their office. Come opening day/night, check in at their service desk, and they will give you a bracelet/ticket (at least, that's how Ep. II was) and then you can go up to the buffet starting @ ten, movie starts @ midnight. Be early in line for good seats. ^_~
    I'm figuring out a meeting place. The back of the theatre facing the smokestacks sounds good to me. What say you?
    My friend Lynn & I already have our tickets. :)

    If I decide to go to the midnight premire (which looks like a 99.9% chance that I will (trying to figure out how I am going to get home), then I will be buying my ticket on Monday. Hopefully see you all there.

    Okay- everyone who's getting tickets.. where & when would you like to meet?
    I'm suggesting the back of the theatre at about 9:45. This good for all of you?
