Wrong theater!

[ #4924 ]

I've got tickets to Episode II at the wrong theater. If I'd gotten tickets for Tinseltown in Grapevine (which is between my house and the theater we're going to), I'd have gotten the chance to meet David Prowse, the man behind the original Darth Vader mask.

      I can't imagine ruining the entire plot of AOTC in a 3" window with my computer's speakers. If I d

      • I avoid commercials for movies I want to see as well. Sometimes, however, the studios themselves give away too much in the previews IMO and, while I can flip the channel or change the radio station, I'm not gonna get up and walk out of the theatre to avoid a preview. I also avoid slashdot articles about any movies I want to see for precisely the reason that you mention - you never know when someone will spoil something.

        I think the first studio-sponsored spoiler example that comes to my mind were the pre

        • The slashdot article in question wasn't even about Star Wars. The post was a troll that sounded informative, and thus modded up.

          I had a similar experience on the Matrix. I hadn't even heard of the movie when I went to it. It was just something we went to because nobody except me wanted to see TPM again. :)

  • At least if I can't go, everyone else should find out. I'm Darth Patient [theforce.net].
