Wellington's Embassy Theatre botches Hobbit pre-sales - Peter Jackson steps in Can't Post

It's a confusing story but it appears that the midnight screenings of The Hobbit on the first night were never going to have tickets available for sale to fans. Not that they told the fans that.

Now PJ has stepped in to save the day.

This reminds me of when I went to the FOTR midnight screening. Our session actually started at 12.30am as the 12.01am screening had been booked out by a local radio station for an audience competition.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.
