I casually threw out the idea on Twitter that an impromptu Central PA tweetup for the Star Trek movie permiere would be fun. A handful of people replied back that they’d be into it, so I decided to throw out some words and see what sticks.
Although the “official” premiere is May 8th, a handful of theaters — AMC, Cinema Center, Great Escape, and Regal — are all opening the movie on Thursday. I’m thinking the 7pm Thursday (5/7) showing at Great Escape would be ideal. As much as I prefer Cinema Center, their sound & optics just aren’t up to the task for action movies. The only catch is that given the obliterating hype surrounding this movie, there’s likely to be a long line and tickets are pretty much guaranteed to sell out. Anyone coming along should buy their tickets as early as possible, and should plan on a long line getting into the theater.
So what do y’all think? Meet at Fuddruckers at 5:30 for the 7pm showing at GE?
