AMC theaters have started to pre-sell Dark Knight Rises tickets in select cities
I'm not sure how many of you are looking forward to THE DARK KNIGHT RISES this summer ( I jest), but apparently someone over at the AMC cinema offices picked up on the fact that fanboys like to get in on movie screenings as early as possible, as they have started to sell opening night midnight screening tickets in a handful of major cities across the country already, according to SlashFilm. For now, the tickets seem limited to cities like San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles, but let's see how this plays out.
As it turns out, some AMC theater managers polled some fanboys back in December of 2011, when they were showing the 6-minute prologue from TDKR before the IMAX showing of MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL, and it turns out that many of them claimed to be interested in purchasing TDKR tickets way in advance (seriously folks, how did nobody pick up on this before today??). Needless to say, the midnight showings in those cities were sold out in an instant, even though the film technically won't be released until July 20th. So you see fanboys... we can make a difference in the world of movies. The image above is a picture of an early New York TDKR ticket purchase. Do you like this new option to buy tickets early?
