Advance ticket sales booming for 'Terminator Salvation'
Fans of the "Terminator" franchise are buying tickets in advance of Thursday's midnight showing of "Terminator Salvation" at the Savoy 16 theater.
Assistant Manager Kya Gream said she has four prints available for the Christian Bale film, which continues the man-vs.-machine series begun 25 years ago.
"Every time we sell out one theater, we'll open up another one," Gream said. "If we have enough people, we can put this movie on four screens."
Taking place 15 years after "Terminator 3," the new film features Bale as resistance fighter John Connor, leading a battle against robots who have taken over the world.
With hundreds of "Terminator" enthusiasts set for the premiere, Gream said Savoy 16 plans to start seating people for the 12:01 a.m. show at 10:45 p.m.
"If we don't start admitting them early, we could have people lined up around the lobby waiting to get in," she said.
Gream said the early ticket buyers are enthusiastic for the fourth film in the series.
"I think people are really excited about 'Terminator Salvation,'" she said. "We think this show will do pretty well."
