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.
