It’s almost upon us – that annual entry in the Star Wars saga that we’ll probably see until the earth crumbles under the heat of an expanding Sun. But with a new Star Wars comes a rush for movie tickets – here’s when and where to score yours.
Update: Tickets are live through Event Cinemas now. There's a new poster as well:
When Do The Last Jedi Tickets Go On Sale?
The only "official" information we have is that tickets to the Last Jedi will go on sale Tuesday afternoon, October 10 at IMAX Melbourne. No exact times have been announced yet, but IMAX Melbourne have stated that tickets will be available once the trailer drops - which we expect to be at approximately 12pm AEDT.
Three sessions will be available to IMAX Big League Members only – the first two sessions at 12:01am, December 14 and 3am, December 14.
A third session at 6pm, December 14, will also be available. To purchase these tickets, you will have to be a member of the IMAX Big League, which costs $30 per year.
All the information can be found on the IMAX Melbourne Facebook page. IMAX will have sessions every three hours from 6am to 11:58pm, December 15 for the general public to buy tickets to.
Want a closer estimate? Fine. I spoke to a source in the cinema industry this afternoon who revealed that the tickets will go live at 12pm, October 10. That's tomorrow.
As we are currently expecting a trailer to drop during the NFL broadcast tomorrow, it would make sense that the trailer will be shown immediately before the on-sale time.
Until an official announcement is made, it's worth keeping an open mind, but I would be frantically searching for that refresh button come midday tomorrow.
When Is The Last Jedi Released In Australia?
Australia will be able to see Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi on December 14, 2017. So you'll be holding onto those tickets for two months!
Good luck in the scramble for those premium seats!
