To make sure the movie wasn't sold out, I bought the tickets online. And we got there early--about 4:20. There was a line, of course, but they let us line up inside (a plus since I wasn't wearing sunscreen) and the line wasn't terribly long. When we got into the theater, it wasn't full.
The movie was long (brilliant, but long), and we got out near to 8 o'clock. There were security guards along the line (there were no security guards for us). And that line that we had been in was now along the inside of the lobby, around to the doors, and out the doors. It didn't curl too far out the doors...well, at least not that I saw (and I wasn't really looking). I'm sure that the 8:whatever showing was packed.
I learned something yesterday. 5 o'clock showings are good. Well, not on the weekends, I suppose, but on the weekdays they're ideal.
