  • 23:43:09 Just got our tickets for the midnight theater showing of the premiere of the new Doctor Who season on the 23rd. Woo woo woo!
  • 23:44:08 It will be a few hours after it shows on TV here, but movie theater, popcorn, some extra content, people dressing up… It will be fun.
  • 23:46:02 It will be in theaters everywhere on the 25th, have been checking to see if Seattle would be one of the 12 cities blessed with the 23rd.

  • 23:51:34 Anyway. Seattle just got a showing for the 23rd… Well the 24th… in Issaquah. And we got our tickets. So we are all set.
  • 23:52:42 The official site hasn't listed the cities yet. People are just finding them on Fandango. 8 of the 12 cities have now been found. 4 to go.
  • 23:53:29 But since I now have our tickets, I'm not going to be refreshing to check the site every few hours any more. :-)
  • 23:55:09 Hopefully Alex will do well with a midnight movie. It will be his 1st. At least at a theater. He's watched one or two at that hour at home.
