I won't spoil the movie for anyone, although I can not tell you how difficult it is not to do so. It is almost physically painful not to say..... stuff. It was so awesome that I would go see it again. Even at nearly $20 for two tickets.

 

Just, if you are a Star Trek fan at all and care not to have the movie spoiled you should go immediately to see it. I am guessing that in the next 24-48 hours the plot will be all sorts of all over the internet and you'll end up having it ruined unless you swear off technology.

My daughter works at a theater in AR and takes her dad, step-mom, bf, friends.... and even sometimes her sister to the movies usually 2-3 times a week. After working there I'm not sure she'll ever be able to give up working for a theater the way she talks about it. She may end up keeping a theater job at least part time a day a week for many years to come just for the perk.

I cant handle movie theatres (too many people in a cramped place) so I've never seen a premiere. 

I hate crowds and noisy film watchers too.

Because I taught a course called "Themes in American Film" for a few years, i liked to  go watch all different film  genres and I used to go to this funky little theater called the Spectrum n Albany and at 3:30 PM, they had a matinee  and I could sit and watch movies ALL BY MYSELF!! No one was there. Got my absurdly overly- buttered popcorn and a giant root beer and for $5.00 I saw everything new. (yes, it was the stone age and the film made a noise as it ran)  ah, the good old days! . It was this movie lover's heaven.

it's $14. per person around here, so we usually wait until it is on redbox for a buck because it won't take long.

OMG , I just recalled one of my Lucy Ricardo student teaching moments when I showed a film called Walkabout

and never noticed in the darkness of the auditorium that the entire 2 hours of film had spooled off right onto the floor. Those wonderful

boys helped me rewind that thing before the head honcho came back LOL I was 21, curvy and cute, so it probably helped.

I get to see it tonight!!!!

 

Can't wait...felt a bit -- hell I felt like shit the past two days -- woke up feeling great, so off to pedal by several of the bike to work aid stations for National Bike to Work Day (ie Trick or Treating for adults on bikes) and then take care of daily stuff....then at 5:30pm son is treating us to free tickets....Hubs has a bit of work to do as son has been asked his opinion of the glutenous food in the fancy "cantina" of the new theater -- lol -- he is training himself to not have a nasty look on his face when he answers -- so hubs is going to eat all three gluten options for research purposes ;)

 

Off to pedal -- if you can consider riding a bike for an errand or to/from work if you live within a reasonable distance of your place of work.

Some movies must be seen on a large screen with the sound blasting all around you.  We rarely eat out anymore, so we can spend the bucks on movies.

You have to see my big ole TV with the home theater surround sound. I get blasted pretty good. :lol:

Well you may have just talked me into seeing the movie again. I was so excited about it and counting down the days until it came out, was ready to actually go to the theater (last movie I saw was Orphan when I was pregnant with my 3 1/2 year old), but then interviews with J.J. Abrams came out and I just couldn't justify spending the money to see something that the director most likely ruined, but I may have to give it a shot. No matter what I would have seen it eventually because I have seen everything Star Trek.

 

I actually think I may have converted my Star Wars is better, wouldn't even watch Star Trek hubby so us and my two girls all love it. TNG is a favorite for hubby, 6 year old and me whereas the youngest likes TOS best because she loves Spock and tribbles. Both girls asked me to use my ball shaped cake pan to make them a tribble cake for their birthdays this year and youngest takes her Star Trek book of opposites to bed with her every night.

I totally agree. This movie has made for theater action. The only reason we go to the movies pretty regularly is because of the $1 theater. It is very rare for us to make a "real" theater exception. The only other opening day movie we ever saw together was Alice. I also went opening day to Beauty and the Beast 3D and went to the sing-a-long when they had that a few years ago. My parents didn't take me when I was a kid and idc how many times it comes back to theaters, I'll see it again and again and again.....

 

There is nothing like an action movie in a theater though. I don't pass up the chance if I want to see it since we have a cheap theater here, I just have to wait longer.

 

Got to see it tonight :) I'm SO marrying Khan. KHHAAAAAANNNNN!!!

 

IT WASN'T ME!!! But to be fair, if you didn't hear the rumors in the past months about who it would be you probably weren't watching any news at all about the movie.
