I’m not going to lie: I’m more excited about the new Star Wars movie than my kids. I blame myself and the decision to let them see the three miserable prequel movies, but so be it.
If your kids are enthusiastic Jedis, here’s what you need to know to avoid disappointment over sold out shows on opening weekend:
- The official opening day of the Star Wars movie is Friday, December 18th; however, it will begin showing the evening of Thursday, December 17th.
- The closest theaters where advanced tickets are available are the Bowtie Majestic, 118 Summer Street, Stamford; Bowtie Royale, 542 Westport Ave, Norwalk; AMC Loews Port Chester, 40 Westchester Ave, Port Chester. You can buy tickets at these theaters through Fandango.
- The movie will be available as a regular film, in 3D, and in IMAX 3D (only at the Loews Port Chester location).
- Ticket sales website briefly crashed yesterday with excitement over the new trailer, but they’re back up today.
