What to know as you head to see Star Wars

Posted at 8:15 AM, Dec 17, 2015

If you are a Star Wars fan, you may be headed to the theaters Thursday evening. Many theaters are sold out but if you have a ticket, the force is with you.

AMC and Regal Cinemas are showing the movie beginning at 7 p.m. going throughout the night, including a midnight showing.

Star Wars fans may be inspired to dress up. But some word of warning: follow the rules. Regal and AMC say patrons with masks, props, face paint or weapons, including lightsabers will be turned away. They will also have a bag place policy in place.

One place that does not have costume restrictions is the Transit Drive-In. They have 1,200 parking spots available and it is a first come, first serve system. Owner said to come early because they are expecting a large crowd. They are also showing the movie as double feature so you get two for the price of one.
