We got to the midnight premiere 4 hours early. Usually we only go about 2-3 hours early. We were literally almost at the end of the line! I couldn’t believe that some people had waited up to 8 hours! There was also a showing at 12:30 am in a non-3D theatre and that line-up was tiny. I didn’t really want to see it in 3D because I’m not a fan, but when I bought the tickets that was all that was offered. Of course I dressed up! There was many people dressed up, including a Hagrid, Bellatrix and a couple of Death Eaters.
When everyone was let in, there was the frantic rush to get seats. By the time we got in only the bottom section was available so I went to save 3 seats at the upper row of that section. I was standing in front of 3 seats saving them while my friends looked around for anything else, and the group beside me didn’t calculate their seats right and asked me to move over one. We were already pretty far over on the side so I didn’t want to, but before I could reply I was pretty much forced over! They just plopped their stuff down on one of my seats. Two seconds later they said they needed one more seat and forced me over one more! By now I was right at the edge and it was definitely not a good view. My friends came back and were pretty mad.
