Opening-Weekend Movie Crowds

Do You Love or Loathe Opening-Weekend Crowds?

I know that the mere mention of crowds can strike fear into many a normal person's heart (and let me tell you, that person should never go to Comic-Con!), but the rush of seeing a highly anticipated movie the night it opens can be a lot of fun. There's always a certain energy in the air, and the crowd is all kinds of enthusiastic, which makes a simple trip to the theater feel like much more of an event.

Then of course, there's the other side of the coin, which a lot of people have experienced with The Dark Knight. The nightmares include massive lines that you have to be in hours before the show starts, chaos at theaters ill-equipped to handle so many people, too much talking, etc.

So where do you stand? Do you love the energy of a crowd during opening weekend, or does it ruin the experience more times than not?
