    After work today, I was shopping for my transformers Generations/ Classic/ Universe toys (found none of them). I was waiting for a ride home, so I I decided to go to the movie theatre and see if they are selling advance tickets to the midnight showing of Transformers Dark Of The Moon. I took the stairs and was really pooped out, I ask them if they are selling the tickets, and they are selling them now. So I asked for one admission, and there was something else about the advance ticket...


    BIG SURPRISE!!!

    It's never happened before from the last 2 Transformers movies I went to, but I got to choose which seat I want to sit in during the movie. So, no matter what time I line up for, that one seat is reserved for me. They even told me the best seat in the theatre, but I chose the seat beaneth it.

    I wouldn't consider being able to reserve your seat at a movie theater THAT big a surprise. Included exclusive toy? Yes, that would be a BIG Surprise. Able to reserve a seat at a theater but only if you buy advance seating? Not as much.

    And why on Earth would you not go for the best seat in the house if the people explicitly TELL you what it is, instead going for the one right below it? That just makes no sense to me.

    I've never gotten to pick my seat.
    I am trying to get tickets at the AMC theater since I have a gift certificate there but it doesn't say 3d next to any of the showtimes, plus it says the run time is 1 hour 39 minutes which we know is wrong, right?

    Here's what I did, Yesterday I went online to see if the tickets were being sold yet.

    I never even knew I could reserve a seat. I would have thought I would have waited in line since 7pm like last movie. And the first people who were in line were standing since the mall opened.

    OMG i was also surprised by that! last time we booked tickets for ROTF, i had to get my lil cousin to run up the SEATS to get us a spot, was so funny we were psyching him up for it, and sure enough, we got decent seats. Luckily this time there'll be none of that, first in best dressed ^^

    Moral of the story, bring ur cousin with you just in case.

    The only problem is about the moral is, Out of my entire family and relatives, I'm the only one who likes Transformers, because I'm actually in a family who are Star Wars fans.

    I'm thinking about driving 40 minutes to a theatre showing it in 2D for the midnight opening. I want to see it in 3D, but 3D hurts my eyes. I wouldn't enjoy DOTM if I saw it in 3D and I don't want that. I already have my midnight opening ticket for my local theatre, but I'm seriously considering refunding it and driving to the other theatre

    You sound like my sister, she hates 3D movies. She always wants to see it in 2D no matter how for the theatre is. She really wants to see Harry Potter in 2D, but so far there are no theatre that have it. And let me tell you, all the theatres in my area, All the DOTM Movies are all 3D.
