    Me... I started waiting at 4 for a pre-screen at 7:30 ; brought a couple Scout /Legend class in my pocket and opened a misb rts legend starscream. no one really bother me... as the girl behind me was playing on her PSP waiting for her boyfriend to show up.. while the group ahead of me was chatting.

    Bought advance tix for the 9pm showing a few days ago. Got to the theater around 7:30, the lady at the theater entrance said we could already go in (I thought ''oh now, must be filled up). There was maybe 20 people in the room, but I was able to get my usual seats with my girlfriend. Was really smooth, no waiting in line was a plus.. just got the seats and ate popcorn. Played Angry Birds and Words with Friends to kill some time.

    I fought tooth and nail for parking in Boston. Which is impossible as it is. Having a movie release only makes it worse.

    Waited in line for 2 hours. We were close to the front, and within minutes of our arrival the line got exceedingly long. Some guy near us asked my wife and I if we knew who the Dinobots were, because he was trying to prove to his friends that they weren't just some obscure characters that only he knew of.

    There was a lot of Transformer shirts there, obviously. Some guys up front had chairs and a table so they were obviously campers.

    They started letting groups of 30 in every 3 minutes, presumably to keep the flow of people into the IMAX theater in check. They've never done that before; my guess is they did it because when they started letting people in, a bunch of dip shits ran screaming and hollering down the winding path and into the complex. If everyone did that, it wouldn't have been fun and everyone would be fighting for seats. I can understand the excitement, but come on.

    What I did in order:
    Arrive
    Go in the theater
    Buy a ticket really easily as there is no line
    Say bye to my mom
    Take a seat... 30 minutes early
    Go to the bathroom
    Take another seat
    Go to the bathroom again
    Take another seat again
    Watch the movie

    Got to the theatre at 10:50 , picked up my tickets for the 12:01 showing. And went inside. Lady told me to wait in the line. It wasn't until 11:44 that I noticed she put me in the wrong line ! She sent me to the 12:30 2D line! Me and my friend ran to the right room and it was PACKED. We had to get the bottom seats, but a group moved so we could get the best kd the bottom seats.

    Here's what I did:
    1) got a meal from the restaurant across the road (popcorn can bugger right off)
    2) went into the cinema
    3) went up a large flight of stairs to the screen (yup, my cinema has many storeys)
    4) went to the bogs.
    5) after getting into the show room, I checked out the insanely attractive lady sitting two rows down from me
    6) then the movie started

    9:00 showing. Got there around 7. We were first in line. Lots of people started showing up shortly after. They let us in to sit down around 815. Watched the movie. Loved it. Plan on going to see it again tomorrow.

    My wife, he sister, and I went to the sporting goods store next to the theater to buy bike tires, put them in my wife's sister's jeep. then went to the theater to meet some friends. We bought out tickets the day before so we were able to go in right away. We were the first ones in. By the time the movie started it was packed.

    Brought like a whole bunch of DOTM Deluxe and voyager pics and gave each one to my friend who was in line with me, which made the wait in line bearable for them, pluse they got a better appreciation for the characters...

    We walked in and sat in our reserved seats.

    Though once the Paramount logo came up, I chugged the Red Bull shot I got from a TF3 crewmember during their first weekend in Chicago. Tasted awful, but it seemed a fitting way to start the movie.
