HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS: PART 1
The picture above is of the line outside of the premiere of New Moon last year. I can remember myself sitting outside of our theater with some friends. It was really cool to see a friend show up with some snacks and drinks while we waited. We played card games to pass the time and got pretty jacked up when they let us in.
You need to lead out this summer and love on your kids.
You know you’re going to hear about them standing in line for the premiere of Eclipse, Ironman 2, and Harry Potter so go to them with your team. Here are a few ideas.
PRE-LIST – Pass out a card for a couple of weeks with all of the summer movies on it. Ask them to indicate which movies they are going to stand in line for on opening night and where they will go to see them. Put together a team with a cooler stocked full of drinks and food. Go to the different theaters and bring them some grub. They are going to be soooo glad to see you. Any friends they are with will instantly love you.
LINE PLUNGE – Just put together a team and decide that you’re going to drop drinks and a snack to everyone who is in the line no matter who they are. As you hand out refreshments hand out raffle tickets and with a megaphone give away some prizes. At New Moon last year every person in line was a student…. CRAZY!
JOIN IN – Just go with a group of your kids and be with them. This is easy and makes total sense. You’re gonna be in line for a few hours at a premiere and this is an incredible opportunity to love them.
