What's The Longest You've Ever Waited In Line For A Movie?
August 8, 2022 5:05pm CST
I read a few people talk about how long they waited in line to see the movie, "Grease", and how it was worth it, etc etc... I've never had to wait in line for a movie? Have you? If so, how long, and which movie? A friend and I saw "Fahrenheit 9/11" the day it came out, and it was busy, but we didn't have to wait.

To be honest, I've watched most of the movies I've seen from the comfort of my home. I never was much of a movie-goer, just don't have the patience for it. I have seen movies much later on at the dollar theater and at home, and it was every bit as good as seeing the movie when it was first running in the more expensive (and long-lined) theaters.

I waited in line for two hours once for a movie. 1977 Star Wars. My parents had a cabin in northern Wisconsin. We would be there every weekend and most of the summer. I had seen Star Wars in Minneapolis when it opened. There was no line to wait in as the theater ran it on four screens. Later in the year, the movie finally made it into the Webster, Wisconsin theater. Seating was around 100. I went with some of the local kids that were excited to finally see the movie. We got there well before showtime for the 7 o'clock showing. It played twice a day. 7 and 9pm. We saw a short line and rushed right up. Apparently, the place was already full so the line we were in was for the 9:00 show. It's the only time I can remember standing in line for a movie.
