Devoted fans Can't Post

As I walked by the biggest cinema in Stockholm, Sweden yesterday evening, I came across a growing line of tents outside the cinema with happy youngsters socializing and playing the LOTR-movies/soundtrack on their laptops.. In the beginning of the line was a sign "The Hobbit. The line starts here!". Well, isn´t that devotion? Tenting outside a cinema in the freezing cold winter (it is like -10 degrees C here at the moment) to get the tickets for the midnight screening.

I am a Little too old and cynical for that kind of behavior, I´m afraid. I refuse to buy tickets before I´ve read several official reviews.

We were a couple of devoted fans in Denmark aswell! [In reply to] Can't Post

I just got home from the most cozy lineparty. We stayed out over night and the news stopped by for a chat! Wink

We got the best possible tickets for the biggest cinema in the whole of scandinavia, so I'm pretty pleased.


I'm the second guy they talk to in the video.

Wish we could have done a better performance though.

I was there! [In reply to] Can't Post

In that very line! I camped since 6.30 PM til 9.00 AM. Got very good seats for me and my pals. The atmosphere was indeed great and we dealt with the ice cold night together.

The greatest adventure is what lies ahead.

I was there as well :) [In reply to] Can't Post

But I only came around 8 in the morning.
Needed only one ticket so I desperately hoped I'd get one but I guess it was barely - some before me were already asked if they wanted better tickets at the Rigoletto instead ...
Row 2 but I GOT A TICKET! :)


and yes, it was freezing cold even for one hour! Heard that the first began camping out already on friday ...

I like this old fashioned way [In reply to] Can't Post

I just had to log on to the Internet, click buy, and I was done!

There's no fun in that at all.

Thanks for the kind words! [In reply to] Can't Post

Yes it is!
I have been growing this beard for the last two months or so! I actually start to feel more and more like a dwarf. Laugh
