Superfans To Wed Before Film
December 17, 2015 by staff
Superfans To Wed Before Film, Seeing as Star Wars: The Force Awakens has reportedly sold more than $100 million in advance sales, you probably already have your tickets to see it. But for a small group of devoted fans, they didn’t get theirs by desperately trying to refresh Fandango. Instead, they participated in the time-honored tradition of camping out outside of theaters.
Two of those fans, Caroline Ritter and Andrew Porters, have set up camp at the front of the line outside the TCL Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles, where they’ve been sitting for the past 12 days. And while the two diehard Star Wars fans are psyched to see the movie when it opens tonight at 7 p.m., they have one last thing they’re planning to do before they settle into their seats: get hitched.
Ritter and Porters are getting married in line this afternoon, having flown in from Australia for the occasion. The long-engaged couple were already planning to travel to Los Angeles for the premiere, and when they heard that the Chinese Theatre was considering hosting a Star Wars-themed wedding, they immediately signed on. Besides, they always knew their wedding would be Star Wars-themed anyway. “We’d never actually considered that was possible,” Ritter tells EW about the Chinese Theatre’s proposal. “We didn’t think it would ever happen, so we decided to take the chance and do it.”
A lifelong Star Wars devotee who works for a mining company, the bride first waited in line outside the Chinese Theatre for the Attack of the Clones premiere in 2002, and she camped out for six weeks for Revenge of the Sith in 2005. Many of the fellow fanatics she met in line more than a decade ago returned for The Force Awakens, and the ones who decided to skip the line this time still stopped by to say hello and give the happy couple their regards. “It’s such a close-knit group of family and friends that there’s no one else you’d want to see the movie with,” Ritter says.
