I felt drained and like a piece of **** after doing the Cornello trilogy in theaters

How does one find a theater that does reserve seating?

I really don't have to have to stand around in line.

I went on Fandango and found the local theaters. Look for the movie and it will list out what type of theater it is and if it has reserved seating. If it doesn't say reserved seating there is none.

Oh what a glorious day!

In May1977, I raced off after school to the movie theater to see a movie that all my friends told me was "Super Cool!" And they were right. Probably saw it like 10 times that summer. But the one thing I never did was see it with my dad. I didn't know it at the time (being 7 years old) that my dad was sick. I just thought he was busy and always tired. By November his time to be with the Lord had come.

I never got to see Star Wars with my Dad.

Now my 11 year old son and I have seen all the movies, played all the games, dressed up for Halloween, but we never have sat together in a movie theater with shared anticipation of a new Star Wars movie. I had a moment this morning as I was getting dressed that I pictured me, my son, and my Dad, watching "A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away..." flash on the screen. It was like a whole truck load of onions that was coated with massive amounts of ragweed was dropped in my living room. Tonight will be special, regardless on whether the movie is any good or not.

Enjoy the day gentlemen. A new era of memories awaits us all. May the Force be with you.

'Bout ready to call my work day over and start getting ready for my 7:00 showing. Get a light lunch... probably go for a run... get out the door in time to eat an early dinner and get in line or my seat around 4:30 or 5:00. My wife will show up closer to movie time.

This isn't life changing or anything, but it's dang cool and I'm psyched! Hoping my theater is full of people ready to have a good time and clap/cheer throughout the movie!

EDIT: I forgot about nap... my goal is to get a good old fashioned early afternoon nap in too!

Honestly, so far it hasn't been as bad as I was expecting it to be, granted we still have the OT and then TFA, but I got a few good naps in and nothing is going to keep me from being excited when 7:00 rolls around

Agreed with DG. Hasn't been bad at all. Decent breaks between movies and everyone is still going strong. Applause has grown with each movie. If I tried to do this at home, I'd get distracted by having to cook lunch or I'd play Battlefront or something

And damn I forgot how much a little ***** Anakin was and it almost ruins Darth Vader for me. A 4 year-old could convince him to execute puppies and jack it to tentacle porn.


That said, I also forgot how bummed Order 66 made me fill for Yoda and Obi-Wan

Been a long time lurker on this thread. But I think I'm going to join the party and pull the trigger on tickets here in Cinci at a 10:05 showing.

I wish I had signed up for the Marathon. Maybe we can have a TexAgs group meet up for Rogue One??

Order 66 is a huge bummer... John Williams makes that part of the movie worthwhile, imo.

Maybe your dad will show up as a force ghost at the end.

I can't believe you two posted that crap. I've tried so hard to stay away from anything outside the trailers, and this is supposed to be my one safe spot on the internet.
Does this ruin the movie for me? Of course not, but it will take away from that part.

On the bright side, I was in mobile and don't have autoload for images turned on, so I avoided the minor spoiler.
