Hunger Games

Jonah and Courtney both attended the midnight premiere of the Hunger Games last night with several other friends from South Warren.  Based on the popular three-book series, the movie theater sold over 900 tickets for the midnight movie.  It was sold out months before the movie.  Luckily Phillip bought their tickets when they went on sale back in February.

The kids arrive at the theater around 8:45 but kids had been there since 5:00.  Courtney said that they let everyone enter the theatre around 10:00, but the movie did not start until, YES, midnight.  Courtney said that the theater employees sported "Hunger Games" T-shirts, and they led the audience in "Hunger Games" chants.  Phillip, oh how I love the man, set his alarm and picked the kids up from the movies around 2:30 a.m. and seeing how the premiere was on a school night the kids had to be up at 6:00 a.m.  Yes, they were ALL tired but made it through the day, I think.

Blessings to all~
