    I thought I would have to wait until halftime today (around 9 pm CST) and opened my Marcus Theaters app just for kicks around 7:20 pm. To my surprise, I was just able to buy tickets from a Marcus Theaters app - EXACTLY the ones I wanted. Just wanted to spread the word for fans! :cloud9::teeth:

    I have been trying to get them but I thin Fandango's web site is getting bombarded. It's running really really slow.

    We tried to get them last night, put our payment info in twice at fandango and it went to a glitch page. Got up this morning and got them for the time I wanted right away with no problem so I guess I shouldn’t have stressed last night! Now I’m wondering what time to show up at the theater to get four seats together!

    I had similar issues.
    Fandango was probably on the fritz from the high volume on their servers.
    I gave up on opening night and was able to get the Sunday a few days after in the afternoon.
    IMAX 3D. Perfect seats too.

    I went up to the theater around the start of the game. It was surprisingly quiet. I was expecting a line. At any rate, a friend and I waited until halftime, then I go in to see when the tickets would be available, and they already were. They had been since 7:30. So, I stood out front for an hour for no reason at all. Don't I feel silly!

    Surprisingly enough, this morning I still got Thursday night at 7pm. Either we have more theaters in our area or not many people interested around here in Star Wars! My DH is happy because he wanted to see it before we left for our Disney vacation. I’m a little worried because I think I’ll have two exhausted boys for travel day :sad2:

    For The Force Awakens I spent over 2 hours trying to get the Alamo site to work - also tried Fandango. I did secure the tickets but it was super stressful.

    This time I had been periodically checking the Alamo app, and I happened to check it around 7:20 and tickets were up. I didn't even have to wait in the virtual queue. The first showing was basically sold out already (no idea how, they made no announcements and I had checked a couple times in the 7 o'clock hour before it finally opened up), but anyway I got tickets to the 10:30 showing! So much easier than last time.
