Just got home from Virgin, got my movie poster (it's huge and glossy and sooo pretty) and a shiny pink wristband to come back later.

The people at the front of the line got there at 11 last night. I got there around 8:20 this morning and still got my stuff, so I'm happy.

Going back for the 4:00 signing. Woohoo!!!

Yeah, God love their little souls. re: I got my Rent movie poster and wristband!

liotte, I'd go with the poster. Think of it in terms of value. I am guessing it would be cheaper to get a cast signed CD on eBay or something like that than it would to get a poster.

A signed movie poster is a really nice piece of memorabilia.

yea now that I'm looking at it, the highlights cd cover is kinda teeny, not much room for autographs. I think I'm gonna go with the poster.

I might go down there now and see if they have any left.

Do you guys know if I get there at around 11:45 if they'll have any posters/wristbands left?

they might not have posters but I'm pretty sure they'll have wristbands.

Hm...well I really wanted them to sign a poster, but I didn't think I'd be able to get down there. Any suggestions?

I got into the store at around 9:40 and they still had posters left, I just don't know how many. I think we were around #115ish and they supposedly had 200 posters. There were at least 50 people after us and I expect people kept joining the end of the line. Don't know if that helped...

I got there around 8am and also got my wristband and poster. Maybe I saw you, liotte, even though I didn't know it. :)

Since the CD doesn't actually come out until tomorrow, we actually all got giftcards for $16.25. I wonder if I can use the card for something else since I have the full 2-disc soundtrack or if we have to buy the highlights CD. Hmmmm...

I'll be bringing my poster to the signing so hopefully I will see you guys there!

I think the gift cards can be used towards anything. But it's kinda weird because they'll have to have at least 500 cds without the inserts in them.

So do you think that one could go there now and still get a wristband?

I can't get there until at least 4:15. I can't decide if it's even worth it to try.

I wish I could make it, but unfortunately I am stuck here at work for the rest of the day! Have fun everybody and as a side note I would definitely get the poster signed over the CD - much more fun to display!

Was planning on it, liotte. re: I got my Rent movie poster and wristband!

And if it's no good, I'm sneaking in, finding Adam, telling him he blows my happy little mind and going home.

Question: I have a poster on my wall. Can I bring that?

I'm opting for the CD. My fiance and I are trying hard to turn our apartment into a place where the 30+ live instead of a dorm room. NOt much success though. My Rocky Horror poster signed by Terrence Mann is still hanging in our living room and my Tick Tick Boom poster still looks pretty in our kitchen - heh!

Gonna try and bring the OBC recording and see what happens. I have everyone but Taye and Jesse. I've lost hope trying to meet Fredi.

But am I *allowed* to bring a poster that I didn't get at the store? Like, if I take it off of my wall, roll it up and stick it in a tube, it's okay to bring? I'd love to have that signed.

is it the movie poster? I really don't think the people at virgin would know the difference if it looked reminiscent of the posters given out, and ofcourse, if you had the wristband to get in.
