I have only been to one midnight showing of a movie.  That was “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” the highest grossing midnight showing ever.  It was set up to be a perfect night: an advanced screening of “(500) Days of Summer” at 7:30 and “Harry Potter” at midnight.  But unfortunately, getting to the theater an hour early was not enough to get into the advanced screening.  So my friend and I just kind of hung around, but around 9:00, I could feel my eyes starting to close.  I dashed to Kroger and stocked up on Emergen-C and Diet Coke, and I lasted until 3:30 A.M. when I climbed into my bed.
