it was the July 2nd first screening.
I remember that I showed up at least 2 hours early to get a good spot in line. There were probably 50 people in front of me in the line. I was with some friends and further closer to the front of the line was Optimus Prime. Yes a guy who took the time to make an Optimus Prime costume.
Anyways, it was probably the best theater going experience ever. The audience was obviously filled with hardcore fans. Nobody kicking the back of your seat. No obnoxious audience members who wouldn't shut up. And the cheers and laughing came at the appropriate timing. People just wanted to make sure that it was their best viewing of the movie ever.
We all cheered at the following events:
"BB arriving as the Concept Camaro"
"Each Autobot Protoform taking their ALT modes"
"Bonecrusher taken out by Prime"
It was an awesome experience and it seemed like everyone was pleased.
It wasn't just about watching a movie, it was the the whole event as a package in a theater full positive energy that made the experience so fun.
