    First movie I lined up for was Jackass 3D at midnight. I was in college and stupid.

    The first movie I lined up for was Star Wars. I was seven and we got in the line on one side of our town mall and the movie theater was on the other side.(1/2 a mile I think).
    I was with my older brothers, and when we finally got into the theater the movie was a third over. However in those days the theaters never checked to see if people left so we just stayed in the theater and watched it from the beginning again.

    the first movie i ever waited in line for was Adams family values. we waited for about 15 min. only to realize we got in the wrong line, and ended up being around 10 minutes late to the movie. i was about 9 so i didn’t mind to much and really loved the movie. still holds a special place in me hart.

    The Ewan McGregor (and Eva Green) film Jackson-Gray refers to is PERFECT SENSE, a 2011 BBC Films/Scandinavian co-production I can also recommend…a reasonably intelligent coping-with-an-oddly-cinematic-epidemic film that makes its points rather well and charmingly, even if for some reason it wants us to believe Green is a Scot (Connie Nielsen is her sister, and manages to come off convincingly-enough Scottish for this Yank; Green, probably wisely, doesn’t really try)…and the filmmakers don’t seem to know how to convincingly portray her as an epidemiologist as well as they do McGregor as a chef. Nonetheless, way the hell better in its compass than such films as CHILDREN OF MEN or GATTACA in theirs. (Thought I’d mention while I remembered to…still trying to recall the first film I made a big point of being on line for…did manage to see DUNE on opening night at a huge Northern Virginia theater, but that was more convenient than what you’re asking…it was a midnight show, and I’d just gotten off my swing-shift job down the street, and I didn’t have to make any great effort. The closest I recall coming to camping out in a line, and this not too close, would be the effort I made to catch the original CAT PEOPLE, and the then-rare THE GHOST SHIP, a few years earlier at the Honolulu Academy of the Arts, and I’ll always be grateful to have seen CP for the first time on a theater screen with full-speaker sound, so as to fully appreciate the effects employed (THE GHOST SHIP turned out to be the worst of Lewton Unit horror films, laughably goofy, but still amusing enough, if not even beginning to be a patch on CAT PEOPLE, by a margin the best of the mostly excellent bunch).

    As a child, I remember lining up for was Star Wars. As an adult, I’ve lost my patience for standing in line unless it’s REALLY worth it! 🙂 I lined up for Independance Day and it was definitely worth it! I WILL line up for anything with Skeet Ulrich in it!!! I think I just might be his biggest fan! Now I’m an Amelia fan too! She’s funny, beautiful, and an amazing writer! I can’t wait to see Point Mugu, The Girl on the Roof, and all their future projects! I want to win that DVD & Blu-Ray set! PLEEEEEZ draw my name! 🙂

    Waited in freezing cold for Francis Ford Coppola’s Bram Stoker’s Dracula only for it to sell out before we even got to the ticket window. It was another couple of weeks before I got to see the awesomeness that was Keanu Reeves attempting an English accent.

    When I was a child I loved Harry Potter and I waited for hours in the cinema to see it as quickly as possible. After I saw the first Harry Potter movie, I couldn’t wait to see the next one. I only stand in line for a movie if I know it’s really worth waiting for. Now I’m waiting for “50 to 1” to be released here in Hungary. I will be the first one who buys a ticket! Especially since Skeet is in it, it can only be a great one. Waiting this long is so bad! I’m sure I will be in the cinema on the first day of the local release. I know it’s weird, but if a movie is very special for me, then I would travel abroad just to see it (if it doesn’t get released here). I love all of Skeet’s movies (my favourite is “Scream” series). He is a very talented actor. I’m a huge fan of him and I wish I had an autograph from him.

    The first movie I remember having to stand in line and wait for was Grease with Olivia Newton John and John Travolta. Oops, I’m showing my age.
