Twilight Midnight Movie = Pure Madness

"It's going to be Pure Madness!" That's what the lady at the theatre said yesterday when I called to see what time people were going to start lining up for the movie. She said that she heard people talking about being there at 4:00PM!!!! That's right...4:00PM for the 12:01AM showing! We all talked and even though we didn't want to be there before 9:30-10:00 we broke down and met at my house at 6:30. When we got over there, there were maybe 15 people in line so we decided to run down to Winger's and eat. When we got back up there (around 8:00) the line had a few more...but, I was feeling pretty good about our line position. We all spent the next 4 hours playing with a Chinese Jump Rope & playing a couple games of Phase 10 & Murder In the Dark. At 10:30 they started seating. That is when the phrase "Pure Madness" comes into play. Once they ripped our tickets, we were all running. Once we were in there, women were diving over seats swinging all sorts of bags, purses, coats and even themselves to save seats. (Remember that good line position?) We ended up in the very back row on the top, with an 1 1/2 hours to spare.
I will save the movie detail discussion for those of you who have seen it! =] All in all it was a fun night with the girls with lots of laughs and Pure Madness.
Next time I will be reserving seats with Jaime & Kelly. You guys are so smart!! What was I thinking?

Decided at 11:35 to go with my sister, walked in to the Spanish Fork theater and had pretty good seats... but you have all the memories, right? Looks like fun. I haven't seen Haley since highschool so it's fun to see her in a pic.

Pure madness is the best way to describe it. It was insanity. It was so not fair that we waited in line for 3 or 4 hours and some of group ended up on the front row! It seems like the time went by really fast though. Looks like you had fun!!

I want to know what you thought of it! I saw it on Friday...and was a bit disappointed in the acting skills. Thought it was a bit cheesy....some parts were good though. haha..

I am so happy to know I was not the only crazy one that stayed up that late! I loved it.

Heather and EJ said...

Yeah I think I need to see it again. I think I will like it better than the first time...I do love Bella's hair though..it's gorgeous in the movie! We should go! Or atleast go to dinner or something! It's been forever. I know I say it all the time..but we really need to get together and catch up!

Hey Jess, I am doing a little blog stalking as well! That was a fun night, I am glad I didn't take out the ticket taker guy...that would have been a little embarassing. You all still need to teach me what a chinese jump rope is and how to use it :)
