I had seen that thread.  I was surprised at the few postings that were there which is why I decided to update a bit.  Here's the kilt trailer from the movie

  Rave Theater chain in a few states have asked Scottish societies to show up for the premeirs in Kilts and Celtic garb.  Alas the groups her in Omaha were not asked to participate. :(
  We plan to see the movie early this afternoon.


edit: just got an email from the Clan Davidson USA head-Pixar has applied for their own Tartan for the movie. The following is the text of the message


"David Chagnon   7:19am Jun 22

For those heading off to see "Brave" this evening, here's the tartan designed by Pixar for the movie, and the text that accompanied the submission to the Scottish Registry of Tartan:



Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. From Disney and Pixar, a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition and challenges destiny to change her fate. 'Brave' follows the heroic journey of Merida, a skilled archer and headstrong daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). The DunBroch Tartan was designed with subdued, rich colours to reflect the rugged, natural setting of Scotland. Representative of the tartan worn by the Royal Family in 'Brave', the pattern is neither splashy nor bright, but organically refined in its colour sense. There was a concerted effort to use hues that were indicative of the less saturated dyeing techniques during the ancient period in which the fantasy film is set. The DunBroch Tartan is the original work of Pixar Animation Studios and is protected by applicable copyright and trademark laws. Only to be woven with the written consent of Disney/Pixar. Colours: Much like Scotland itself, the DunBroch Tartan is set against the ocean blue of the North Sea. The deep scarlet represents the family’s reverence for its own history, and the blood shed during battles between the clans. Deep green shows a love for Scotland’s majestic highlands, where the story of Disney Pixar’s 'Brave' unfolds. Navy blue, and its clear central intersections, represents the forging of the clans within the DunBroch kingdom. And finally, the subtle grey imbues a sense of respect for the inner soul of the strong Scottish people.

Have a great time!

Apparently some folks who frequent Sherwood Forest Faire here in Texas are going to the premiere tonight in garb as a group. I wish I could make it, but its an hour away and it would take me an hour to get there... I'm tempted just to show up in my Druid robe to a "normal" showing.

We had about 30 of us show up, but only about half or so in garb, but it was still a lot of fun.

I was thinking about going to see this movie in the theaters with my friends, when I have a weekend off work. I am thinking about going in garb, but not sure.

  Don't know. The pirate factions get a chilly reception for the POTC movies too.

We went to see it yesterday anyway, wearing our Clan shirts that we use for the games.  Great movie.
   I like that the theme was Mother/Daughter bond instead of a romantic one since it is a Disney Princess.
The men were there generally for comic relief (and very well done!)

AuntieGiggles and I went yesterday with my three daughters and her husband, as well as with Marietta Graziella and one of her boys. We LOVED the movie! VERY fun!

We went and saw Brave yesterday and loved it!  Although there is a girl as lead it isn't a "girlie" movie.  We laughed through most of it and got teary at the appropriate parts.  My 9 yo boy thought it was great. Saw lots of adults there with no children in tow.  The graphics were amazing, that horse looked real in many parts!  Definately want this for my collection.

I saw the movie last night with my  family. Very well  done. Excellent  message about the bond between a mother and daughter, and although the lead character is  a female it is  a movie  for all .  Great animation. The artists that drew  the animals are very talented.

We saw it yesterday morning....though we had to sit through 40 minutes of kiddie previews. Not a knock on the movie; but the published start time was 11:40 but they didn't finish previews until 12:20. I don't think we'll try any more Wednesday matinee showings.

The plot was a little thin, but the animation was gorgeous. Some of the 'aerial' shots looked very real, almost like film. But it was a very entertaining movie.

Saw it with a garbed crew in Nashville last week.   We had a great time!  We all really liked it and agreed that the animation is absolutely beautiful!!

Wife and I went to the Weds matinee and really enjoyed it. Agree with everyone that the animaton was very realistic. Reminded me of some real portions of Scotland I've been to in the northern coast, and very much made me wish to be back.

Can't believe we didn't even think to kilt up...... :-[

   I read on one of those '10 things you don't know' blogs that you really shouldn't worry about being late for a movie anymore.   Now days, the 'start times' are designed to get everybody in their seats for the commercials (many of which you've already seen on TV) as well as the previews. You actually have about 15-20 minutes before the feature starts.
    We use it to hit the concessions, rather than getting snacks before sitting down.  Getting there early for a good seat is really not an issue unless you are going to the opening day or two of a popular flick, or you are attending with a huge tribe of folks who want to sit together.

Funny thing about movies these days... We don't watch television anymore because of the poor programming for one, and stupid, inane commercials for another.  I'm not going to pay to watch commercials. It's very rare that we go to the theater for movies anymore, usually only when my son is visiting, because he is a huge movie goer.  I saw my first (new generation) 3D last week.

I guess y'all are going to AMC or Cinemark theaters a lot, since they both sell advertising in front of their shows. I love previews, but I too find the ads annoying, and I always think it's funny that they pimp TV shows at the movies! But I guess their option would be to charge you even more and let you stare at a blank wall...
 While the rule of thumb is that the showtimes mean the start of previews, AMC is frequently cited for having the latest 'start times' for their shows, part of that is based on one of their long standing guidelines that shows should not start till everyone is seated, but it generally has more to do with running a multi theater complex with the minimum amount of staff.

for the record, I went to see brave for $7 at the Alamo Drafthouse, they sell booze- so no kids, and they generally tailor a preshow to the feature, so for Brave it was a lot of clips of stuff like Braveheart parodies and Billy Connely's standup shows.

   Now that sounds like fun! 
  Yeah, the Marcus 16 theater is AMC-They just recently (this year) started showing TV show and product commercials, all of which are already on TV, and don't translate well to the big screen. 
   We rarely go with children, I wish they had something like this in our area.
  They do have $2.00 popcorn/soda combos on Thursdays for the matinee.

Several theatres do - Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, I think there are some in the DFW as well. Heck, we even have a few out here in NC...

You can get beer (including Guiness) at the AFI Silver Theatre in Silver Spring, MD  :)

On topic though, can't wait to finally be able to sit down and watch this movie!

We went to see Brave at the Aloma Cinema Grill, which, oddly enough considering the name is similar to the Aloma Drafthouse, is in Orlando, Florida. They serve food and drinks, including beers and wine. Tickets are normally only $7.50, but we went as a group and got in for $5.50.
