I saw the new Star Wars film this afternoon. I'm not going to say a word about the film itself, just the experience, as it was a number of firsts for me.
This was the first time I purchased movie tickets in advance. I bought four regular tickets for today's noon showing about a week ago, and paid via Paypal. Because it's a Tuesday, the tickets were only $7.99 each.
This was also the earliest I had ever arrived at a film. The showing was at noon, but we all got to the theatre at about ten minutes to eleven. Only three people were in the theatre, so we put our jackets on four amazing seats and grabbed some grub at Tim Hortons. By 11:30, the theatre was jammed.
I had been dodging online spoilers for weeks, and I'm pleased to report I went into this movie knowing nothing more than you'd know from the trailer and poster.
Sweet nostalgia FTW!
