    Fandango has movie tickets on sale for "The Muppets" already. I had really wanted to see the midnight showing the day it comes out, but can't find any theaters in my area that are offering it. Does anyone else have this problem or is it only my area? :grr:

    Have you tried looking at Nov 22 dates? One place near me has one listed for 12:01 am (odd).

    Yup, I've checked both dates. The first showing I can find is 10am on the 23rd. :(

    I have tickets for a showing in Maryland at 12:01 a.m., Nov. 23rd...they list it on the 22nd on Fandango as a late Tuesday night viewing.

    Anyone in the Chicago area with a car want to go see it at midnight in Skokie or Niles? I don't drive and no city theaters have midnight showings. :boo:

    I'm in Chicago, but I'm holding out to see if any theatres start releasing times in the near future.

    AMC Van Ness 14 in San Francisco has one Tuesday night at 12:01 am and I think the Downtown Disney one does too.

    As a commuter who's public transportation system prudishly stops service before 1 AM, I'm unable to get to a Midnight showing. So I'm going to have to have a complete blackout from this site until I see it Wednesday. Opening day still counts, right.

    The Muppets Fan-a-Thon has announced early screenings. Maybe somewhere close to you will have an early showing! A lot are this Saturday.

    "Close to me" still requires public transportation.

    I could get there no problem... coming home however is another story.

    Trust me, I HATE the public transportation system over here enough as it is. Plus I'd be afraid I'd fall asleep during it that late.

    The early screenings seem to be around 10 a.m. for most cities I've been seeing on that Fan-a-Thon site for anyone out there looking to try and see it this weekend. Unfortunately, my wife is out of town and I promised I'd wait to see it with her. We think we might be getting an early showing Monday night, and will still hit up the midnight showing.

    Midnight tickets haven't gone on sale yet, but, then again, neither have normal tickets. The curse of living in Oregon's Rogue Valley, it takes forever for things to get going around here. I heard tell that tickets should go on sale a week in advanced and considering there was a midnight showing for Eat, Pray, Love two summers ago, I have faith that we'll get a midnight showing of The Muppets.

    I've started recruiting people to go with me. I'm only allowing people along so long as they understand: A) I'm going to cry a lot, B) I'm going to be excited to the point that I will be terrifying, and C) If they say one bad word I will hurt them. It's actually funny, because there are quite a number of people that have asked to go with me. I think they assume if they go with the resident Muppet nerd of our department they'll have a better time. :)

    Oh, yeah, if people are planning to make fun of you, then don't let them come along. If people can't respect your admiration for something so incredible as the Muppets, then they don't deserve to go with you.
