Had vacation to burn so decided to take the day off (18th). Taking the wife to an 11am showing at a brand new Alamo Drafthouse that just opened in town. Cool thing is their lobby was designed with a Star Wars theme (see link). laugh

It's not IMAX but it is Atmos so since there is technically only one true IMAX scene in the movie I can live with that.

I won't be watching it until the 21st at the earliest. Pretty much every even moderately decent place around me is sold out until Sunday, and I am going to be busy on Sunday. I took the week before and after Christmas off so I am thinking about going on the 21st while my wife is working and 16 year old daughter is in school.

She really wants to see it with me, but she hasn't seen any of the previous movies, and I don't see how there is enough time with her schedule to see them over the next week, even if we just focused on IV, V, and VI.

Most of our theaters are sold out for the first week - so I'm happy to wait until the crowds die down.

Yeah, I can wait, but I will probably stay off of Facebook and the like so that people don't spoil anything for me. I just want to make sure that I get a chance to see it at a large format theater (Have to drive about 1 hour and 15 minutes) before they kick it off to the "regular" screens. Although, being that it is Star Wars, I would bet that it would be in large format screens for at least a couple of weeks. Of course, then we hit Christmas and I will be out of town, and not in the right direction...

The company my wife is an exec at is hosting a private screening on Dec 19th, so I will be at that. My youngest and I are currently watching the original 6 movies in Episode order 1-6. I have watched in both episode (1-6) and release order (456. 123) and I must say I enjoy the episode order more...in case any one wonders! smile

So much is lost with release order and so many oddities.

Machete Order is best. 4,5,2,3,6 (skip 1).

Yeah, I may do that with my kids. I still think Revenge of the Sith is too intense for them, though.

Awesome, my theater made Wired's The 7 Best Screens in the US to Watch Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Cool video of the SW lobby theme.
