Comic-Con released details on how you can try to get tickets for the Star Trek Beyond U.S. premiere happening next Wednesday.
We finally have the information that everyone’s been waiting for, how to get into and watch the Star Trek Beyond U.S. premiere! It’s fairly simple, no hoops to jump or trivia to answer or pictures to take or costumes to wear. It’s just a matter of being there and getting the right ticket out of the bag.
Yes, it’s a random ticket drawing.
For a chance to win access to the screening, please go to Embarcadero Marina Park South (see the map below for exact location) starting at 11:00 AM on Wednesday, July 20, where a drawing will start at 12:00 noon. Once there, get in line to pick a ticket out of a container. The winning tickets will have a distinct stamp on the back. Once a winning ticket has been drawn, the ticket will be exchanged for two wristbands that will admit the wearers into the World Premiere of Star Trek Beyond! If you do not draw a winning ticket, you may return to the end of the line to try again until all winning tickets have been drawn. Only one winning ticket is allowed per person. Tickets will be drawn between 12:00 PM and 2:00 PM or until all winning tickets are drawn. Both people wishing to attend the screening must be in attendance at the time of the drawing to be wrist-banded.
Of course, if you do get a winning ticket, be sure to be there at least 30 minutes prior to the start time of the screening. if you aren’t there, you may lose your spot.
The only thing problematic about it, and it often happens at Comic-Con is the possibility of having those in charge underestimate the amount of people that show up and when they do. Because, although it does say to be there at 11am, there will surely be fans getting there quite a bit earlier than that, waiting around, pretending to hunt Pokémon until an official line is formed. Let’s hope they’re prepared.
