Episode VII Schedule

I imagine it’s possible I could be more excited for The Force Awakens but I’m not sure how. Last night was a frenzy of ticket buying, scheduling, consulting with friends, and downed web servers. I knew I wanted to do the Star Wars Marathon, a showing with my wife, and try to get to IMAX in opening weekend. These three were necessarily mutually exclusive. Anna didn’t want to do the marathon. 18 hours leading up to the main event is too much, especially when it starts at 01:00. All the IMAX showings I could find were in 3D and, honestly, we both prefer 2D cinema. So. Minimum three showings in the opening weekend. (I will likely try to finagle more.)

In the end, I got tickets to my preferred theatre for the Star Wars Marathon for myself and two friends (also hardcore Star Wars fans), tickets for Friday at 12:30 for Anna and I, and tickets for Saturday morning at a Regal IMAX (fulfilling both the IMAX desire AND getting us a nifty collector’s edition BB-8 art ticket). Sundays at AMC theatres there’s another promotion for a free poster. I’ll try to swing that one but it will be dependent upon how I feel after three days living at the cinema.
