Warwick fans turn out in droves to watch force awaken
EAGER for the first screening of the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie, Warwick's Twin Cinema had a line of fans waiting from 9am yesterday.
Warwick Twin Cinema owner Michel Kairouz expects the film to be the biggest of the year.
"The first two or three weeks will be extremely popular," he said.
"The movie will be here for a month, and maybe beyond, depending on how it keeps performing."
Star Wars will be screening five times a day for at least the first week with sessions at 10am, 12.45pm, 2pm, 6.15pm and 9pm. Despite a lack of interest in a midnight release, Mr Kairouz said there were plenty of fans waiting for the first session at 10am.
"We have about 50-60 people here all keen to get their first look at the new movie," he said.
"You don't get much bigger than Star Wars.
"There are plenty of people who saw the original series and want to see the next chapter as well as a new generation of kids."
- From today until Wednesday daily session times for Star Wars: The Force Awakens are 10am, 12.45pm, 2pm, 6.15pm and 9pm.
- Tickets cost $8 for children, $9 for concessions and $11 for adults.
