Hundreds of fans camped out in downtown Los Angeles at LA Live over the weekend, just to be the first to purchase tickets to the advance screening to the Michael Jackson This Is It movie.
They began lining up early last Thursday, and continued to wait until midnight on September 27th, when the tickets went on sale. The first 500 people in line also received an authentic, one-of-a-kind This Is It lenticularly-printed ticket inspired and designed by Michael Jackson for the London concerts.
The film, featuring footage of the King of Pop rehearsing for his London concerts, will be screen exclusively at the brand new Regal Cinemas at LA Live on October 27th.
This Is It captures the singer, dancer, filmmaker, architect, creative genius, and great artist at work as he creates and perfects his final show. Kenny Ortega, who was both Michael Jackson's creative partner and the director of the stage show, is also directing the film, which is being produced by Randy Phillips, Kenny Ortega and Paul Gongaware.
The new facility will boast the nation’s most state-of-the-art and technologically advanced theatres. All 14 theatres will feature digital projection and sound systems along with high gain screens, high-back reclining seats and retractable cup holders guaranteeing the ultimate comfort for the best movie experience. The Regal Cinemas LA Live Stadium 14 will also feature an 800-seat premier house with a private entrance and lobby in addition to a grand spiral staircase leading to the premier theatre’s balcony level.
