    I wonder if we're going to have any hard-core American fans flying over here to watch it one day early. Don't you just love living on this side of the dateline?

    "Yippie!"

    Now I'll have to figure out how I can line up for tickets without getting in trouble over missing school. I'll *have* to go to that midnight screening. Maybe I can convince my Film and TV teacher that I can make a lining-up documentary :D

    The great thing about New Zealand is that you don't need to line up to get tickets.

    TPM came out on Thursday, and I saw it on the Friday afternoon. I went to the movie theatre, ten minutes before it started, no line, got tickets, went into theatre. No problem :D

    For Ep1 I read that tickets for midnight were going on sale, so after work I went to the local multiplex, no queue, and bought 6 tickets for me & my friends.

    Then the next day I found out I had would be in Sydney for work during that screening. It didn't open in Sydney til a week later I think.

    But luckily I got tickets for the preview at Mid-City 3 or 4 days prior to me going to Aussie! :D

    My poor wife had to go to the preview AND the midnight opening night...

    The Episode I midnight screening at Hoyts 8 in Christchurch sold out the morning tickets went on sale, I believe. I think you had to line up to get them. Hopefully that'll be different for Episode II.

    Umm... how can I put this? "Yipee!"

    Sweet, all I have to do now is get some kids who want to line up outside the Embassy for 4 months to get me tickets.
    I'm sure peanuts will be a good enough insentive.

    well, aint that swell.

    I remember going to Hoyts the day Ep1 tickets went on sale, no one in the line.
    I thought 'they must have sold out' but I picked up the last 4 to the premiere.
    hopefully I can pull it off again...save me camping out.

    LOTR tickets go on sale thursday!

    I'm going to try and get midnight tickets for LOTR. They go on sale at 7:30am, and I can get in there at 6:40am. Hopefully there isn't too much of a line [face_plain]

    lol a line?

    on the news it showed 3 guys (in auckland) receiving pizza hut while under blankets.

    hmmmmmm unless everyone arrives from now until 6:40am (when you arrive) i dont think you'll be waiting long for your tickets.

    id love to go to the 'one minute past midnight' screening... ON MY BIRTHDAY, but some how i dont see that happening.

    got my tickets this morning, got there at 7.30 and got tickets in row K, so I assumed 1/2 the tickets were gone already. One of the guys in front of us (they'll be on One news, in the ute with the couches) bought 30 tickets.

    Yippee!!!! cant wait!

    :eek: 30 tickets?!

    the news said that instead of having the boss shout drinks at a pub they are buying tickets to LOTR for the offices! hehe

    Well, those wanting tickets for the midnight showing are probably out of luck already - the noon News on TV1 said that Hoyts have just about sold out of tickets.

    >> the noon News on TV1 said that Hoyts have just about sold out of tickets.


    A press release saying "Nearly out of tickets" is a ploy (normally used for concert tickets) to make it seem like something is more popular than it actually is, causing a rush to secure the "last tickets".

    While I have no doubt it will sell out soon enough, I find this all pretty amusing. If you want tickets to a midnight screening, you will get them if you get onto it today, I guarantee.

    It's only for the main Queen St theatre (in Auckland anyway), all the suburban Hoyts theatres (who may also hold their own Midnight screenings) haven't been given the go-ahead to start selling LOTR tickets (as of yesterday).

    I don't know how people can watch a movie at midnight. Even if it was the best, most exiting, most wonderful movie ever, I would still fall asleep. I don't drink caffeine, that's my problem.
