Buying Tickets to see Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith

I'm watching Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith on SpikeTv. Only six years ago, I went to Neshaminty AMC at 9:00 AM to get tickets to take Timmy for the 6:00 PM show, which was the earliest that wasn't sold out.

His eyes lit up when we pulled up to the mall and I held up the tickets for his mother, him, and me after I teased him it might be tough to catch a show on opening night, May…
