Watchmen Movie Ticket Sales, Watchmen

Do You Buy Movie Tickets in Advance?

I'm old enough to remember the days when buying tickets before a movie's release date meant getting in the car and going to the theater to purchase them. Which, in retrospect, seems really inconvenient. Sigh. I love the Internet.

Nowadays, the bigger the buzz around a movie the more people will rush to buy tickets in advance — especially with the convenience of getting tickets online. I have friends who bought their Watchmen tickets days ago, and apparently they're not alone. Fandango said that sales from advance tickets to the highly anticipated movie "represented 90% of its advance ticket sales for this weekend." Dang!

What do you think of buying tickets in advance? Seems like the thing to do to be absolutely sure you'll have a seat on opening day.

It depends on the movie and the time I want to see it.

Nope, I'm not a fan of going to movies the day they come out. I hate being in a packed movie theater. It's annoying.

It depends on the movie.

If I feel I'll have trouble getting tickets, yeah, I do.

Only when it's a really big/popular movie that I'm dying to see and don't want to risk it being sold out...I did for Twilight.

we pre-ordered our dark knight tickets when we saw it in imax. But other then that I don't, just isn't worth it to me.

I'll occasionally order tickets the day of, but I've never ordered further in advance than just a few hours. Maybe I'll consider it for when I go see Watchmen on Sunday, but probably not.

I usually pre-order unless it's an independent theater. The lines in Manhattan are psychotic.

I don't like being in a jam packet movie so I will go to the theater and closer to show time and if its sold out or packet I don't go to the movie.

I have never pre-ordered tickets. However I would if the film had insane hype and I was going to see it sometime between the release and two weeks. I plan to see the Transformers sequel this summer, so I might have to pre-order (not sure yet. :shrug: )

I did (twice) for The Dark Knight in IMAX because I knew it was going to sell out the first few days... thats the only reason i would though, big movie (and if its in IMAX or 3D, you know "special" ha)

I have a few times. But they add on an extra charge for doing it so I rarely ever have bought in advance.

I haven't been to the theater in years. Probably about 3 years now. So I just don't buy tickets at all. ;)

there are times that i do buy in advance, but a majority of the time i just wait until the time that i want to go. when i used to live in Florida, there was this one AMAZING movie theater that i would go to and you kind of had to buy tickets in advance since they were sofa seats and seating was always limited.
