In China people fall in love with Avatar - Shanghai, People's square

In Shanghai, tickets for Avatar have become harder to find  than a working visa. When the film first opened, on January 4th, we could only book IMAX tickets a few days in advance. Faced with overwhelming demand, the Peace Cinema in People's Square released tickets for the rest of the month; then it stayed open overnight on January 10th to let people buy them. The entire month was sold out by morning. This is the story of one man's quest that night.

The pictorial evidence from the night is decidedly non-3D. In fact, it's made up entirely of grainy cellphone images, for which we (and he) apologize. You can get the idea though: a very long, very carefully-regulated wait, very early in the morning (he began lining up at midnight and didn't get the tickets until 4am) in freezing weather for a handful of tickets in three weeks time.
