Re: August 9, 2010: "Twas the Night Before"
If there was a midnight-night-before screening of STAR TREK IV, it was very limited in terms of locales. There wasn't anything around locally here (which includes the Philly metro area) until early afternoon (the film opened the day before Thanksgiving). I have written extensively about my experience of that opening which, to this day, remains the best time I have ever had in a theater leading up to the start of a film. I'm a couple of years younger than you - I was 19 at the time.
