  1. It doesn't make sense that you would have to camp out still if you get a numbered wrist band on a first come first serve basis!!!! Why would they want people camping out on the sidewalks while the film festival is going on when they can just easily give you a wrist band and tell you to come back Thursday morning to line up in the order that your wristband is in??

  2. what would happen if we did do that? ^^^^

  3. anyone that was there, can you let me know if you are allowed to leave and come back or if you HAVE TO camp out?

    and is there ever any fans allowed into the movie, maybe through contests, local radio station, etc.?

  4. Was there and was very disappointed in how people behaved. Lining up began way before 6AM, I heard some say as early as midnight? We had arrived Saturday thinking that would assure us a pretty good place in line. Not so much! Lining up early was not permitted supposedly. We went down to check around 3:30AM only to find the street filled with people. :( We took our place pretty far down the road and many joined after. At some point after 6AM when Special Event Mngmnt. people arrived and tried to begin organizing the people, everyone (these were grown adults remember) began running towards the front. The mngment folks could not control the 'fans' even after repeated threats to not hand out tickets. Consequently those of us that attempted to listen to the organizers ended up at the end of the line. So after traveling 2000 miles and spending a great deal of money to give my 13 yo daughter a time she would never forget, we were quickly reminded of how rude the general public can be. We did receive wristbands, however the numbers did not allow us a very good position on the carpet. We still had a great time and were fortunate to have a Twilight Mom near who was kind enough to take my daughter's book and have it signed since we were not in the front row. Not exactly how we had planned it, but we certainly learned a lot and will remember it the next time......and there will be a next time!
