COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” has already become the best-selling movie of all time on Fandango.com. And today, at the AMC Lennox 24 fans sported costumes ranging from Jedi to Sith Lord. Hundreds of guests arrived hours before show-time and camped out in front of the theater in order to get the best seats in the house.

A couple of fans said, “We’ve been here since 1 a.m. this morning because we purchased ‘Marathon’ tickets, so we’ve watched all six of the movies before Episode 7 tonight.”

AMC expects a sold-out crowd for all “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” show-times, and they encourage fans to arrive early.
