I'm kind of surprised there isn't already a meetup for this. Since there isn't, I'm proposing one. The Hobbit is opening Friday the 14th. Let's meetup and see it.
I think it'd be cool to see the High Frame Rate version, and there's a 6:00 showing Friday at AMC Boston Common.
This will be a friday evening show on the opening day of a BIG movie, so I'd assume it'll sell out and fairly early. It's probably a good idea to buy tickets online asap: http://www.fandango.com/thehobbit:anunexpectedjourneyhfr3d_160262/movietimes?location=02111&date=12/14/2012
I'll be in the lobby starting at 5:30. I'll be wearing my red fedora, so it'll be easy to find me. We can maybe go out for drinks/food afterwards.
