It looks like Wellington MAY have a line party. We held Welly-moot (the meeting of Wellington's Tolkien enthusiasts) at the Embassy Theatre yesterday. I spoke to the Elly, the manager there, and asked her when Hobbit tickets to the December 13th opening would be available. She said at 12:01am Nov 7th (online), and 09:00am next morning (physical box office).
Then I asked her if she would consider opening the physical box office at midnight as well, and she said she'd consider it IF she got enough demand for it.
So: please, if you know anyone in Wellington who wants to stand in line for the world's FIRST official tickets (keep in mind our midnight happens an hour before anyone else's midnight!!), get them to send an email to Elly, the manager of Wellington's Embassy Theatre, at firstname.lastname@example.org with a subject of "Please open the Box Office at 12:01am, Nov 7th for Hobbit Tickets!".
If it opens, I plan to be there on the night - let's see how many others we can get to join us!
Elly is a very nice person, and TOTALLY enthusiastic about The Hobbit, so please be nice to her when you email her!
We need the fans to show how important this is, so please DO email her!
