What happened to the guys on line in front of the Chinese Theatre?

Did they ever give in and leave?

I thought they were there cause they were convinced ep III would be showing there (since ep I and II were supposedly NOT going to be shown there but actually were shown there).

wait wait wait.. they were there to protest that it wasn't being shown there? I thought it was all for charity?!?!

I still laugh when I think about when they were certain they would show it.

Someone else on this board also mentioned they got to see some version that was 10 minutes longer or something? But I haven't been able to find any news articles on it...

They've decided to stay in line awaiting the opening of "Buckaroo Banzai Vs. The World Crime League".
