I think the policy is that you can't show the film before Thursday. Anyways, it's not a worldwide release date, and no matter when you show it, there are still going to be parts of the world who still can't see the film. So it's not like you're avoiding anything by not having the midnight screenings.


But I guess I'll do like I did in 99, go at 9 pm and buy a pair of tickets. :)

Yes, there ARE midnight showings.

I encourage everyone to call their local theater, such as Hango and myself have done.

When Episode 1 came out my local cinema showed the movie at 12:01 on the Thursday to counter any issues with the screening dates.

My local theater (which is not part of any chain) plans on a midnight showing. Even if LFL puts the rule down, I bet this place will ignore it and have it at 12:01 . . . at least I hope they stand strong! :D

Who is Lucas to tell them not to do a midnight showing? If the clock reads 12am or anything after that, it is May 16. Just because its not May 16th in Cambodia or some other country doesnt mean jack. Let us see our movie!!

He'll do midnight movies because he wants to crush the weekend box office record.

It looks like it depends on the theater, some will, some won't.

Well, there are some around here that are doing the midnight thang, I am just glad those rumours about LFL trying to squish them are not valid. Or are they?

Not sure if I'll hit a midnight screening, I hope to but if I don't it won't bother me too much. ;)

I looked on cinemark.com and it seems that there will be plenty of theaters that will show them at 12:01

Some of the Clearview Theatres are having the Midnight showings. Just check their web-site to find out which ones.

Got my tickets for a 00:05 showing a few weeks ago, & the beauty is........I, & all other UK fans seeing the midnight madness, will have seen the film & be at home tucked in bed whilst you North American types will still be queueing. Oh that sure beats the 2 month wait we had 3 years ago. Headbutt or no headbutt gotta love them apples:>
