Who else saw the first screening(s) at midnight?

Who else went to the theatre at 10 p.m. and waited in line from 11 p.m. that snaked down two stories of stairs to the main floor of International Village?

Who else stayed until the credits were done and cheered at the sight of the credits, “Filmed in part at Vancouver Film Studios“?

Who else will have to suffice on four hours of sleep on Friday’s workday….?

Yeah, it rocked.

    I’m okay for sleep, thanks to not going to the show, but did you stay long enough to see the post-credits easter-egg scene?

    Yes… my companions who know more than I do did not budge from their seats until the credits stopped rolling and we got that little clip. Despite what is said about it being the last movie, it provides further opportunity for more sequels.

    Thanks for the tips about the “filmed in part at Vancouver Film Studios” and the easter egg scene (from Ryan). I’ll definitely be staying for that. I missed the alternative endings for “28 Days Later” a few years back and ended up having to rent the DVD to see them (not really a worthwhile investment, but at least I satisfied my curiosity).

    I was there, in theatre 9. we were across from the elevators in our lineup from 11 on.

    i was good at work until about 4 pm and then started to waver. and then after work i headed out to dinner and a play. wavered at the play too.

    knew about the easter egg scene. my friends weren’t going to stay, wouldn’t believe it was really there but i refused to budge. it was worth the credits.

    only got seats in the back row of the upper balcony in the side. actually had a great view but good luck being in competition for one of the posters.
