Hello! If you are nervous about going to a premiere for the first time. Don't fret! I have decided to create Top 10 Movie Premiere Tips to ensure you have a fun and enjoyable night!

(These are in no particular order)

1. If you want a top quality looking auto, get hold of an 8x10 pic and take a silver or black sharpie pen. If you don't, just take a wad of index cards with a biro or felt tip! - remember the celebs usually don't carry pens!

2. Take a camera! - if you want to remember this day for the rest of your life, take pics of it! Otherwise, you'll have to settle for little press pictures on the internet - and that is boring!

3. Take a friend - it's always so much more fun with a friend!

4. Bring your own food and drink - sometimes food and drink can be expensive where the premiere is, and also if you arrive and don't want to lose your spot then you'd better take your own food and refreshments. Take a couple of bottles of water, a sandwich, fruit, choc bars - whatever you like.

5. Arrive early! - if it says the premiere starts at 7pm then don't turn up at 6:30pm, it's not a party - you cannot be guaranteed a good look in. For a big premiere, like 'Pirates 2' you should arrive at the cinema around 3ish, for a lesser known film arrive around 4ish - this should guarantee you a spot right at the very front of the barrier - meaning more autographs and most importantly - more celebs!

6. Remember that some stars may not turn up - I know it's a depressing thought but it could happen. At the 'King Kong' premiere everyone showed up, at the 'Casanova' premiere, Heath Ledger (the lead star) did not.

7. Make sure that when you arrive, you should take your bag and put it in front of you on your feet or in front of you against the barrier. Pickpockets do thrive at premieres because of all the open pockets available.

8. Take plastic wallets and a folder, after you get an autograph you do not want it to fold, bend or smudge in your bag. So after you get an autograph, put it in a plastic folder then into a sturdy folder which you can then put into your bag.

9. Check the correct date and venue! It'll be a bummer if you arrive on the wrong day or at the wrong place. Just check on the Movie Prem thread - http://www.fanmail.biz/mboard/viewtopic.php?t=19561 - and get the right date!

10. HAVE FUN!

You don't need tickets if you just want to show up at a premiere for autographs do you?

No, if you are simply turning up to the red carpet for autographs then no tickets are required.

It is only if you are attending to actually see the movie that you will require a ticket.

Many thanks for helpful advice, I've never been to a premiere but I'm hoping to move to London at the end of the year so I'm going to try and go to as many as possible then! :)

Hi this is my first post and let me first just say that this is a very helpful site! :D

Anyways, i went to the premiere of Four Christmases (Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn...) and I was hoping to get their autographs. But it was at the Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood and we were required to stand across the street by the barriers. :( So i didn't get the autographs i wanted... But fortunately, after the screening, one of the stars of the movie, Katy Mixon, came out of the "regular" exit and signed my screening ticket.

I want to go to more premieres in the future, but if it is at the same place, how do i get their autos? Because i know that some people got to go right next to the red carpet. and most of the fans had to stand across the street.

Thanks! :D

Yes, you can bring a camera to the theatre if you plan on being outside taking pictures of celebrities that turn up. Not sure what the theatre's protocol is about bringing cameras inside the theatre, though.

Oh no i meant you can't bring cams INSIDE the theatre... they're gonna either take it away or have you check it in with the security.

Thanks for the help Larisie and anra82012 !

Unfortunately, after waiting for almost 3 hours , we didn't got in the theater. There were so many people and it was really cold. I did see the backs of the celebs but I didn't got a close look to them. But they gave us re-admission movie passes good until august 2009. I also left my camera on the car just to be on safe side.

to anra82012 , they were giving tickets to myspace.com/blackcurtain wherein you print your profile (most people used that) , but we got the tickets from my mom's friend. The ticket was just printed.

Oh I'm sorry to hear that..
Well sometimes you can get lucky.. I got lucky cuz there were people who worked from the production company of Four Christmases handing out screening tickets (i guess to fill up the seats) and we got inside! :] Free popcorn and soda (as much as you want!)
Hopefully the next one is better! :D
