Hi there I just need someone to clear up some confusion here. I wanted to know if AOTC comes out May15th midnight to carry over to the 16th or may16th midnight to carry over to the 17th??? Which means do I stand in line at 9pm on the 15th or do I stand in line on the 16th?? Thanks

What my local cinemas did for Ep1 is that they showed it at 12:01 am so as not to earn Lucasfilm's wrath by showing it a day earlier.

Get in line at 9pm or so on the evening of the 15th. When the clock hits 12:01 it is officially the 16th and theaters can show it without fear of repurcussion from the deity that is George Lucas. Have fun!

i need to check with my local AMC theatre, cause i just got advance tickets that say 12:01 a.m.,May 15th. That would be on a wednesday, unless it was a misprint, computer error, or they consider anything after midnight to still be on the wednesday business day. i'm confused.:confused:

I have the same problem that you do derek. My tickets that I picked up Friday say that the movie is at 12:01 the 15th. By my count, this means we line up the 14th for the midnight 15th showing. I thought that it was opening every where on May 16. I went to the AMC website and they say that the movie opens May 16, with advanced showings on the 15th in select cities. I am confused too. I think I will go to AMC where I bought my tickets and ask them for some clarification.

This is the way I asked for my clarification: "So, this is the time between May 15th and May 16th; that midnight, right?" I got a yes, even though my tickets say May 15, 2002.

I'm going to charge people $.25 per person if they wait on the 14th-15th; I'll make a fortune! :p
