Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix movie tickets sold out

Posted by Patrick on 1 Jul 2007

Yes, that’s right. No, not nationwide silly. But here in Denver, at the theater I prefer to visit for movies of this .. well, magnitude.. tickets for the first day’s complete showings of the coming movie Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix sold through online presales sites and from the box office itself are now completely gone.

What does this mean? Well, first of all it means (I hope) that there won’t be a block-wrapping line of freaks who both 1) love the story in a fanatical way and 2) don’t understand the concept of advance purchasing. Long gone, I hope, are the Star Wars: Episode III Times Square lines thanks to folks like Fandango, who will serve you up an online will call ticket with the quicks as long as you pay an extra dollar. And let’s face it, what’s $1 versus the $12 you already are paying, but so that you don’t have to stand in line hoping to get tickets. You’ll spend $4 on a drink and $6 for popcorn, on average, so don’t be miffed away by a $1 convenience charge.

And, yes, I have my tickets.
