    Attending movie premiere, any tips 26th Jan 11 at 9:08 AM
    I along with Fairyprincess79 (not together I must point out) are both attending a movie premiere this weekend.
    Just wanted to know if anybody as been to a premiere before what are the do's and donts?

    What do you wear?

    Do you walk near to the red carpet? sounds silly to ask but I don't fancy walking down with my walking sticks and then appearing in the next issue of Heat Magazine

    Do they provide you with refreshments etc in the cinema or do we purchase them ourselves?

    How close can you get to stars? I mean is there a chance of having photos taken with them?

    Any other tips you could pass onto us?

    If tiz Gnomeo & Juliet most of the sites say Adults to wear " Garden Coture " ( no blinkin idea what that means though ) and kids to wear either red or blue xxx
    All that I have been to have provided refreshments & most of the actors have been lovely posing for piccys with the kids xx
    Have a great time xx

    Well done - I'm interested in hearing the answers too. (I'm not going to the Premiere - just curious.) You'll have to update this thread when you've been.

    I'd say be prepared to wait around as these things never ever start on time and make sure to bring some water as they usually don't provide any refreshments.
    But enjoy it, oh and do your best to saunter past the hordes to give the impression to them that you are in the movie ;-)

    DH and I did the West Is West premiere, which wasn't a big premiere compared to the ones you see on the TV and in the papers, but it did say smart clothing on the email I got. We did walk the red carpet, ( I got DH to carry my coat, as I wanted to show off my posh frock that I never normally get to wear, sad I know). Lots of people weren't dressed up however and were carrying shopping bags.
    We did get given a bottle of water and a mini bar of chocolate.

    Opps, I forgot to say congratulations and have a wonderful time

    Well done! I've been to 2 premieres and both were a really fun and exciting experience (or I don't get out much lol)

    There's usually a dress code and it's an opportunity to dress up but at the same time I've never done that part properly because one was in Paris so it was freezing and the other I had to go straight from work. No-one's going to take much notice unless you're a celeb anyway but the option's there...

    In Leicester square there was a second entrance so us nobody's didn't walk the whole length of the carpet just the end part but I think it depends, I don't think you'll make it into Heat although I'll keep my fingers crossed for you

    There have been refreshments at Paris they gave us some weird sandwich wrapped in cling film plus a chocolate bar and water. In London, it was a big bar of Galaxy, popcorn and water.

    Never met any of the celebs because as someone else said they usually keep you waiting...especially Brad Pitt! They also put the action outside on on the big screen in the cinema so you can still see what's going on.

    Hope you all have a great time

    I won tickets for 'Blue Moon Rising Premiere' in Manchster, it was a Blue carpet, (Football Team's Colour) we saw a couple of corrie stars, Football Players and Manager, and Liam Gallagher, we dressed up as it stated smart dress, but some people were wearing jeans and jean jackets, we had front row seats, with Water and Popcorn, my hubby is a Man City Supporter so was really pleased i won this, as we reaced the bottom of the carpet all the press started taking our photo's, i'm sure they thought we were Richard & Judy, a slight resemblance. Enjoy your experience Andrew, we loved it. Hope i have posted ok, first time i have had the courage to join in.

    I've been to a couple of premieres and my advice is always - don't peak too early! The celebs will all go in late and if you go in early you will be left in an empty cinema for an hour waiting for the rest to arrive! Dress to impress and remember that all those fans who can't get in and photographers are all there for you! Oh and your first premiere will be the most exciting so soak up the atmosphere and enjoy every moment. Congratulations all on your wins and have a great day!
