Use the app. Unfortunately the theatre I'm trying for isn't up yet.

For me, local chains are not up yet but Regal and AMC are ... wonder if the locals fear retribution a bit more than the big chains.

I got 4 reserved seats for the 17th @ Irvine IMAX 3D which is at least the best IMAX around...I will see it in a big 2D screen later...

I'd see this at the Mann's Chinese IMAX but they don't get Disney films because they're across the street from the El Capitan. I'd love to see this on the IMAX laser system.

Tickets acquired. Now I just need to get some power convertors to deal with this hype!

I'm going to guess that the theatres and times are listed but they haven't put them up for sale yet. I wouldn't trust anything with all theatres and ticket sites crashing now.

Don't believe the hype. Remember when dorks lined up for months to see The Phantom Menace? I bought tickets to the midnight screening at a nearby multiplex around 5:00 pm the day of the screening. This was in Los Angeles.

Chinese IMAX is showing it and it sold out pretty fucking fast. 200am and 500am showing are all sold out too. I think the next available showings are on Sunday.

Of course not. It wasn't really shot on IMAX either. But the studios sure want you to buy up those 3D and IMAX tickets at premium mark-up.

Waaaaah? Wow, I think that's the first Disney released film to be shown in the Mann's Chinese in years. None of the Marvel films have been shown there to my knowledge.

I'll catch a 2D showing at a less insane theater and then if I like it see it in IMAX a few weeks after release.

Exactly. This thing is going to be on so damn many screens that everyone will be accommodated. You may not get into the preferred opening weekend showing, but so what.

Re: Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015, Abrams) S: Hamill, Ford, Fisher

Crap. I think the interweb is crashing! Had tickets in my cart for an Edwards Marquee IMAX (reserved seating) and my cart crashed. Was able to score 4 VIP+ (18 and up full service balcony) at a Santikos theater for a Friday showing. Now trying for Alam0 Drafthouse for Saturday for the commemorative glass/magazine.

Sheesh, what's it going to be like after the trailer airs and tickets "officially" go on sale????

There's going to be a new Star Wars movie? Would have been nice if someone said something. Will there be many merchandise on sale? Haven't seen anything.

This is ridiculous. I mean... I know the demand is heavy... but it's not like they weren't given a heads up for this. They should prepared properly.

I ordered tickets through Fandango.com but never got the confirmation page. I did get a confirmation e-mail and my credit card was charged so I hope everything went through OK.

Fandango and movietickets both kept crashing on me. Luckily there's a local premium chain that sells tickets on it's own website (with no service fees!). Scored 2 reserved recliners for their large format Atmos screen on the 17th at 10:30

A friend bought our tickets tonight at the local Warren Theater (nicest in our metro) and when he left they were sold out from Thursday (7, 9 & 12) through Sunday.
