Midnight in Morgan City, with three half out of their mind kids...lol

Adrian, myself and his best friend Steven and his little sister Harley...went to The Half Blood Prince midnight showing last night...and we had a great time....at first it looked like we were the only ones who dressed for the part....but they have about 3 more teenage guys and one girl who dressed in uniforms...if you call them that....I'm sure Professor Umbridge would have something to say about that...lol...Collapse )

Not everyone has seen HBP yet - so under a cut!


As always - this is one person's opinion in bullet points. Not rife with profundity or deep insight, that would require more time and another viewing. =D

OK This is it!

LJ has eaten this a few times - so if this sounds like I'm crazy... it is because I am.

Half-Blood Prince tickets are on sale now. www.movietickets.com for the Jul 14th/15th midnight show.  IMAX will not be an option because WB is FUBAR'D.

zerone45 already has her krewe organizing for Clearview 12 with a dinner/cocktails at Serrano's Salsa Co.

Clearview being in the mall should give us a/c for the long line of waiting (because you know there is going to be a line to Egypt) - Elmwood... not so much.

Time TBA - offer your suggestions below. :D

Saturday Squee - Jul 18th. Time: TBA (make suggestions below)
                                                 Theatre: Make suggestions.
                                                 Meetup: Make suggestions.

(See a pattern? :D)

Ya'll know what to do!

HBP Post

Hello darlings,

I just looked at my little calendar and... OMG! HBP is finally getting closer! Just about a month away! YAYS!

The lovely Jeny (whose lj name I've forgotten as I'm typing this away from my computer) has already tried to find out when tickets might be going on sale, the smug ticket boy(tm) was apparently surprised that someone would want tickets this far in advance. Muggles, can't live with them - can't turn them into ferrets. Le sigh.

So...We have two independent plans.

Plan #1

Midnight release party at AMC Elmwood 20
I'm presuming they will be having the IMAX 3D version at midnight; but right now - who knows. Muggles and logic, oy.
Of course, we will always have the regular version - but we can jump off that cliff when we get there? Right? Of course, right.

Plan #2

Saturday SqueeFest Part Deux
Again - depending on the IMAX schedules. Since this is on a Saturday, please lets not go at the buttcrack o' dawn - sleep is our friend? Yes? For OofP, we did nosh beforehand and a 7pm show. Does that still sound like a good idea? Any other suggestions?

Meet-up Locations

I have a very very small list of the places in the immediate vicinity of the theatre. There are also a metric ton of fast food joints and several other places I'd just flat not remembered; so if any other ideas come up - let me know and I can edit the list. :D

Money Legend Breakdown:

(Note: does not include adult beverages or taxes)

$ 10 bucks should cover you
$$ 10-15 range depending on how you order
$$$ 20 should do it (more or less)

(Louisiana) Copeland's of New Orleans 1001 S Clearview Pkwy Harahan $$$
  New Orleans Hamburger-Seafood 1005 S Clearview Pkwy Harahan $$
(Sushi) Sake Cafe of Elmwood 1130 S Clearview Pkwy Harahan $$$
(Generic) Applebee's 1220 S Clearview Pkwy Harahan $
(Louisiana/US) Zea Cafe 1655 Hickory Ave Harahan $$$
(D'uh) Wow Wingery 5359 Mounes St # H Harahan $
(Sushi/Japan) Kyoto Two 5608 Citrus Blvd # A-B Harahan $$$
(D'uh) Reginelli's Pizzeria 5608 Citrus Blvd # C Harahan $$
(Greasy Spoon) Fat Hen Grill 5708 Citrus Blvd Harahan $

This is the part where I say "speak now or forever hold your peace".

Hey, Hi, Hello

I know alot of you have seen this already but can you believe it is going to be next month alreayd....I can't...my son is dressing as Order of the Phoenix Harry with a gray Hoodie,red t-shirt, jeans and chucks...any one else dressing....this is really exciting about the movie,...it really looks absolutely awesome.

Dusting off a plot... maybe...

I know this is rather early - but anytime you try to get a group of people together for something, it takes a bit of time.

As everyone knows, Half Blood Prince is coming out on July 17th. The Covington theater no longer has an IMAX screen but AMC Palace 20 does.

Would anyone be interested in attending:

A midnight group viewing on opening night (dinner opt possible too)
A Saturday get-together (w/ dinner opt possible too)
Something else I will post in comments
