Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow: Part 2  
I FINALLY got to go to the midnight premiere for a Harry Potter movie. I've wanted to go for a long time, but there was always some reason that I couldn't. This was my last chance, though, so I was determined to make it work, damnit. And I did!

It was on of the best experiences of my life. The theater was absolutely packed. I've never been to a movie with that many people. The atmosphere was fantastic. It was obvious that everyone there loved the franchise, and it made me feel like I was part of something, like a little community. People kept shouting out how much longer it would be until the movie started, and every time the entire audience cheered and applauded. Just before the movie started, an employee came in to "tell us the rules." There were only two. The first was that no one was allowed to use their cell phones, which was understandable. The second one, though, I felt was ridiculous. Apparently, we weren't supposed to talk. Like, at all. If we did, we'd get kicked out without a refund. I felt like I was in school, getting told off by the principal. I don't know about everyone else, but the reason I came to the midnight premiere was to have an experience. I didn't come to sit quietly and watch the movie whilst pretending that no one else existed. I came to watch the movie with other people who loved it as much as I did. Needless to say, no one paid much attention to this second rule.

I've come to realise that watching a movie with a large audience makes it so much better. The best thing is to hear everyone's reactions. Whenever something particularly awesome happened on screen, the entire theater would break out in cheers and applause. I really loved it, and I hope that someday I can go to another midnight showing. I'm looking at you, movie version of The Hobbit.

I also have a bit of a story about my costume. I have a Hogwarts robe. I've had it ever since I was in sixth grade, which was in 2001. I wore it to the movie, obviously, but I didn't have a uniform to wear under it. I decided to pick out clothes that I already owned that looked as close as possible to something that might be worn in the movies. After I got to the theater and was watching the movie, though, I realised that I had accidentally dressed up as Neville Longbottom. It was pretty awesome.

Oh, I'm so happy for you, honey!

There was no rule about silence in our cinema. I mean, it's weird, isn't it? Lol, silly people, thought that Potter fans could sit quietly during the very last movie.
Lol lol lol, I remember that some people were sobbing while that scene when Harry "died". And I was like, "Hee-hee-hee, and I read the book, fuck yeah!"

Also, you're cool! Wearing a Hogwarts robe. From what faculty? ;D Or it was just a robe? *ba-hahaha, I remembered Ron's ceremonial robe xD*

We had a bunch of cheers at our theater, especially for Neville. Everybody loved him! They also loved when Mrs. Weasley killed Bellatrix. I didn't notice a lot of sobbing, but I got teary-eyed a few times.

I bought my robe a long time ago. I bought it at a local store as a Halloween costume. It has the Gryffindor crest on the chest. It's pretty awesome.

Oh, right. We all liked Neville very much, too! :)
When Bellatrix died, me & my friend applauding and grinning like mad. I said, I was waiting for this from the fifth book. I. surprisingly, didn't cry or anything. But I feel so sad from time to time.

Gryffindor. Yay! :D I believe that it's awesome ;)
