Fans line up for 'Man of Steel' tickets

Plano doesn’t have a movie theater, but that didn’t stop fans from lining up on Saturday, May 18 to buy movie tickets there. Some waited in line all night at the Plano Walmart Supercenter to buy tickets to see a special screening of “Man of Steel” on Thursday, June 13.

“We’ve had people here since about 11 last night,” said Walmart manager Eric Isaacson early Saturday morning. He said, through an exclusive agreement between Walmart and Warner Bros., most stores had tickets for the early screening.

The Plano store had 450 tickets for the screening at WOW 7 Cinema in Sandwich. Isaacson said that number was split between 3-D and 2-D. Tickets went on sale at 8 a.m., and the 3-D tickets sold out quickly.
