Default How many times are you going to watch GL the opening week?

If there is a Thursday midnight showing I'll be there! Then I'll hit it Saturday and Sunday. Then I'll hit it again the next weekend. I'll probably even choke down the extra $$ for the 3D...even though it wasn't filmed in 3D.

So I'd like to see it at least 4 times. How about you?

I will see it in the theater exactly once. (And that may not even be opening week. With three young kids, movie outings without the kids need planning.)I have never seen a movie more than once in the theater (with the possible exception of drive-in movies that our family would go to on vacation sometimes, where we didn't care exactly what was playing, it was more about the experience).

OK, I saw the Original Star Wars Trilogy twice, once when I was a kid, and once when the Special Editions came out. And I saw the Toy Story 1&2 double feature in 3D, but that was more for the benefit of my son, who hadn't seen them in the theater, and had NEVER seen a 3D movie.

I'll be going to the midnight opening showing with my friends, then again that opening weekend with just the wife.

If it's REALLY good, I'll go again at least one more time while it's in the theater.

Cool

AT LEAST TWICE! I've been waiting for a GL movie for AT LEAST 20 years, so I'm going to see it on the big screen as many times as I can!

Probably once. If some other friends are going, I'll go to the midnight showing. If not, then I'll wait for the cheapo theater.

I'm going to see it as many times as I can. Because I'll have my whole life to watch it at home, but the experience of seeing it in the theater is something else.

This. Inception, Dark Knight, and Scott Pilgrim all got 1 viewing from me as well. I don't expect GL to be the odd film out.

I'll probably see it once for every day of the weekend. My wife saw LOTR likek 9 times in the theaters, I imagine this'll be a similar situation for me.

My record for most times I've seen a movie in the theater is seven, for Revenge Of the Sith and Return Of The King. So I'm gunning to break that record with eight for Green Lantern.

I did about 6-8 for Spider-man so depending on this films quality I may have to break that.

Only once, for the fact that I like to watch and enjoy the movie and take it all in. Enjoy that experience. And then wait till it comes out on DVD to re-experience it.

It doesn't have anything to do with money, I just want to tire of it too quickly.

Wait, what? Doesn't "working in a theater" imply that you actually have to do some work? How could you do your job AND "watch every show of the day and not have to get up except for bathroom breaks"? Maybe I need to get a job in a theater!
