++ I am now in possession of the tickets for the midnight premiere of The Battle of the Five Armies. (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
I've only ever been to a few midnight premieres in my life, I think two from Harry Potter (not counting the midnight book releases) and the most recent one for Desolation of Smaug. I think midnight premieres only work best when it's a particular franchise with fans. I remember going to the last Deathly Hallows midnight premiere and there were people dressed in costumes, someone was dressed as a Snitch running around the theaters with someone trying to catch them. Some people were dressed up for The Hobbit last year, too. The only downsides to midnight premieres though, aside from having to wait in line for hours just to get the good seats, are people who get drunk and end up being loud and obnoxious, or people who end up being immature in general just to show off and be stupid. I had only one unpleasant incident during the DOS premiere, so I'm hoping it doesn't happen for BOTFA.
