Would you ever camp outside the movie theater for a release?

No need. Movies are in theaters for weeks, just go some other time.

There's really no need. I saw Star Wars, and didn't have to camp out. Maybe it's where I'm from, but with online ticket sales, there's really no reason to camp out.

With the advances in home entertainment you'd be hard pressed to get me in a theater at all, especially with prices where they are.
My couch and 55" screen at home offer far more comfort and convenience. I'll wait.

If it weren't for finals, Star Wars would have been the only one I did it for.

Throw in tickets, giant-size popcorn and pop, and no work the next day, then I sure would.

Best invention, movie theaters with reserved seats. No camping, no waiting and keep your life.

Not camp out per se, but I did spend all night in line for Episode I tickets. It was actually pretty fun because really it was just hanging out and drinking with friends.

No. I just want to walk up to these morons camping out for the Star Wars movie & say "You do know that this movie will be shown 10 times a day for probably the next 3 months don't you?".

I *have* gone early - really early - to get a place in line - once - for a really popular new release. But, in my defense, hubby had bought tickets in advance as a birthday gift & I'd been in the ER 2 days earlier & was on a *lot* of pain killers. 😱 Saw the movie again a year or so later... it was like seeing it for the first time ever! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Camping out? No.

The great thing about that other time, we got priority seating as "handicapped" cuz of ice packs & date on Rx bottle... and probably the tears falling from my glaze over eyes. 😡

I can't imagine a movie where I would think the experience of waiting even with a group of likeminded fans would be very fun. I can understand some people liking that, but it's really not me.

Nah, but I did reserve seats in VIP for Star Wars 3D... Sunday night, when it's not a zoo.
