so the last HARRY POTTER movie opens tonight at midnight. I was gonna go see it. I see most midnight shows. well...there are 13 screens at my main theater, all 13 are sold out for midnight. there are 18 screens at my other local place, 12 of them are showing the movie in its various guises, and all 12 of those are sold out as well. they're now offering shows at 2:45 AM. Now I'm not a big HP fan, so I'm not going to wait around until 3 AM to watch a mildly entertaining, watered down fantasy flick. but WOW I've never seen such a popular midnight show. this blows away the popularity for any of the LotR or SW movies (both fun events for midnight shows in their own right).
Life ducks, and you sigh.
