Midnight Showing or Sunday Afternoon?
Fri, 11-04-2011 - 2:08pm

All my friends are going to the midnight showing on the day it premieres. For several reasons, one of them being that I have a small child and my husband has to leave super-early in the morning so I can't live on just a couple of hours of sleep, I can't go with them. I'm trying to talk at least one or two into going on Sunday afternoon, but they all want to be part of the hype that night. I don't blame them, I guess I'm just sad I will end up going alone. Am I the only one going on Sunday afternoon?

That stinks---can you maybe talk them into a 2nd show? I'm always up for seeing it again and again! LOL

I always go at midnight with my sister and her friends. However this year I have an infant so they're coming to my theater so I can stick closer to home. The only down side is that we're heading to Hershey Friday afternoon. So I'm going to the midnight showing (12:01 to be exact, lol) then come home, sleep for a short period, then wake up, work then leave for Hershey - a three hour drive. :/

I'm opting for the Sunday afternoon showing, too; it's a better fit with all of our work schedules. I don't think I'll miss the premiere hype, 'cause dd manages to bring enough hype to it anyway! LOL

I'm thinking I'll probably go on Friday evening. No midnight show for me due to work, but I don't want to wait too long either. ;)

I bet you could talk a couple of them into going again, with you! I'm planning on being at the premiere but I know I wouldn't turn down an invitation to see it again...and again...and again! LOL

Not at all! Midnight is like the middle of the night to me these days! :smileyvery-happy: I'm very excited for the movie, but I can certainly wait a few more hours. I value my sleep too much!

That's probably when I'll be going. I'll miss the hype but also can't stand a crowded movie theater!
