The Hunger Games is almost here, and many of you are already in possession of your tickets for the midnight showings. I’m sure some of you even have a game plan for the big night; what snacks to bring, how early to start lining up, what chair to bring, and now Movies.com has asked the fandom the dos and the don’ts of the midnight screenings. We also would like to know what your dos and don’ts are, so let us know in the comments!

Do: Bring some form of entertainment, preferably Hunger Games related, like the Neca board game to not only keep you entertained, but to also keep you in the Hunger Games mood.
Don’t: Bring the Twilight board game or merchandise, or even dress up like you favorite Twilight character. You’ll most likely receive dirty looks from others in line, plus we don’t want any more comparisons between the two movies.
Midnight Screening Must-Have: Comfy clothes! After standing in line for hours, and gorging on junk food, you’re going to want to be as comfortable as possible while watching this movie.
Do: Bring your laptop, smartphone, and reread The Hunger Games while you wait. If you are a die hard fan, you’ll be there super early. While it is a great time and amazing experience, the day can be long and tiring. Reread The Hunger Games while you wait and discuss with your friends what scenes you hope will be in the movie!
Don’t: Spend the whole time on your laptop and/or smart phone. While it’s a super good idea to have them, you need to mingle with the crowd! I’ve met so many people while waiting in line for a movie, people that I still talk to years later and have developed a great friendship with!
Midnight Screening Must Have: Your camera! Snap pictures of everyone in line. You never know – there may be some people dressed up!

Do: Many theaters are in malls or by take-out restaurants, so if you didn’t bring snacks, get a place in line first and then send one or two people from your group to get food. You never know how many people will get in line during the 15 minutes you’re gone.
Don’t: Save a place in line for too many friends. Having a friend show up late is understandable, but having 10 arrive for the first time 20 minutes before the movie is not. Fans who have been waiting for hours are not going to be happy being pushed back 10 spots when it could mean the difference between a great seat and an okay one.
Midnight Screening Must Have: A deck of cards. They’re a great form of entertainment and can pack up neatly without taking up too much space in your bag.
