Midnight showing of 'The Hunger Games' draws a crowd

The warm and sunny weather Thursday evening made for a perfect night to enjoy some time outside, which is exactly what many area youth did as they waited in line outside the Apollo Theatre hoping to score tickets to the midnight showing of "The Hunger Games."
"I've been seeing people arrive since around 3 p.m.," said theater owner Alyson Lynch. "They got out of school, got something to eat real fast, and then they came right back down here."
Tickets were scheduled to go on sale at 7:30 p.m., and by 7 p.m. a line of close to 100 people was along the sidewalk outside the building.
