There are some theatres that are showing it already to employees and limited numbers of guests. A friend invited me to see it with him on Sunday night (he has a Masters in Education but still works at a theatre ) but I got drug to a stupid opera with my GF. My local theatre is showing it tonight at 12:01 again I know that.

Re: The Dark Knight Megathread (USE THIS! Love, the mods)

^ I'm sorry to say that I didn't and I wish I had gone. I'm still kicking myself over it. I was especially kicking myself over it when I watched a few of the online clips on Yahoo this morning. Then I was slamming my head into the desk. I must have hit too hard because now I can't do math...

How do people fail so royaly at telling time? (And this is directed towards those who put the times on the kiosks.)
The two theaters near where I live that do midnight shows typically list the time as 11:59pm, rather than 12:00 or 12:01 am, specifically to avoid such confusion. For example, even though I'll be seeing it at the very beginning of Friday, the listed time is 11:59pm Thursday night.

^ The theatres in Pittsburgh are doing something similar. The official start time of one is 11:59 Thursday. The other times are 12:00, 12:01, 12:02, & 12:03.

I saw this yesterday afternoon, and I have no words. Suffice to say, it blew my mind!

Maybe the silly award talk will die down by the end of the year when the real Oscar bait comes out. But, what Heath did in this movie is like nothing I've ever seen before. The way he'll be remembered for this role will be worth more than the statue.

The problem is that every negative stereotype about Oscar voters are true, such as their very short attention span.

Indeed. It was something extraordinary.

Man, i need to see this movie again. Like NOW! Watch for a scene where Eric Roberts' character is dropped a short distance to the ground. Im fairly certain, but I think I felt the entire cinema grimace.
I thought he was someone else. Can't believe that I didn't notice it was him. Like you, I will see this again over the weekend.

My brother and I are going to see the midnight showing tonight (provided we get there in time to buy tickets, anyway). Less than 24 hours! I'm so ridiculously hyped I can't stand it!
