Tron: Legacy in 3D!!!
After discussing the idea with some friends, I've decided to change the location from the original idea of the IMAX to the Showplace Icon. This is a benefit in a number of ways: almost all the good seats at the IMAX were already taken; the Icon is really, really nice; and parking is free at the Icon.
The Icon does assigned seating! I have already bought tickets for a few of my friends (they know who they are). The tickets I've bought are for seats E9-E15. Please try to buy tickets close to these seats if you want to sit with the group. You are responsible for buying your own ticket. Obviously, buying a ticket on-line is the way to go. Tickets are $16.
To buy a ticket:
Click on this link to go to the Showplace Icon website.
Confirm that it says "Friday, December 17th at the Chicago, IL Showplace Icon" under Showtimes and Tickets near the bottom.
Click the 7:00pm time under the ICON Reserved section. NOT the VIP Premium.
Enter how many tickets you want and then click "Continue Checkout".
The system will automatically assign you a seat. You MUST change it if you want to be by the group! Near the bottom of the screen is a "Change my seats" link. Click it.
It will ask if you want to change your seats. Click Yes.
It will then show you the available seats. Choose seats as close to the group as you want. When done, click "Continue".
It will then take you to the screens for paying for the seats.
I plan to be at the theater at 6:30pm, hopefully sooner - depends on traffic and work. I'll stay out in the lobby for a while, but since the seats are assigned, you know where to find me. :-)
There may be an outing to a restaurant to get food after the movie. Let me know in the comments or your RSVP if you are interested in doing this.
