I try to avoid Hollywood & Highland as much as possible but now I might have to go by and snap some photos of this line. According to Boing Boing not only are they already lining up, but the are answering the payphone:
“Jess sez, ‘Star Wars fans are already lining up at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles for the Episode III premiere in six weeks. Perhaps more interesting, however, is the fact that they are apparently answering the payphone outside the theatre. Give them a ring at (323) 462-9609 and see who answers.’ I just rang it and the guy who answered it did a great impression of someone answering a pay phone in line for Star Wars — so it may even be true!”
I haven’t called myself yet, but that’s because I’d probably end up trading ANH or ESB quotes with whoever answered and that would be just plain sad.
UPDATE: OK, so after I saw the comment here that Episode III is being shown at Arclight NOT Graumans (and a few people e-mailed me the same thing) I decided to call. The guy in the line who I talked to said they have spoken to Grauman’s and have been told that regardless of what has been reported so far there is a 70% chance the movie is going to be at Graumans, not Arclight. He also asked me to post a link to their site liningup.net where the are posting more info.
UPDATE 2: It’s officially NOT playing at Graumans. More details in this new post.
