If you were anywhere near the internet over the last couple of hours you might have seen the hysteria.
Star Wars tickets are on-sale! Yep, we're pre-ordering movie tickets now.
Which is a little bit silly in some ways, but in others makes total sense. Take iMax in Darling Harbour for example. Just over one hour after going on sale, all tickets for the first midnight showing of Star Wars: The Force Awakens are completely sold out. If you had dreams of watching Star Wars: The Force Awakens on the super massive iMax screen the second it was released, that dream is now dead. Pre-orders: absolutely essential in this case.
By all reports it was very, very difficult to get a ticket. The iMax site couldn't handle firepower of that magnitude, which made for a lot of disappointed Star Wars fans.
That being said, the iMax storm appears to be over. The site seems fine now. And — at time of writing — if you don't mind waiting until 3am, tickets for the iMax showing in Darling Harbour are still available. In fact, tickets for most (non-iMax) midnight showings are still available as long as you're not too fussy about your seat.
