As a wite this, at 11:00PM on May 17th, the show should begin in one hour. I just got back from the theater, where I was told that the show will *actually* begin in 25 hours.
Even the web page has the wrong date.
When I was in school, they taught us how the date changes at 12:00:00AM. Maybe that’s not the case in a galaxy far, far away. On Earth, it works like this:
11:59:58 Tuesday May 17 2005 11:59:59 Tuesday May 17 2005 12:00:00 Wednesday May 18 2005 12:00:01 Wednesday May 18 2005 12:00:02 Wednesday May 18 2005
Notice when the date change occurs. It occurs at midnight. The fact that some people incorrectly say “So, it really starts late Wednesday night” is irrelevant. Those people are morons.
I can only assume the theater did this intentionally, because they thought it would somehow be less confusing than printing things up correctly. It’s a sad state of affairs when science fiction fans, who are supposed to be well versed in the sciences, can’t even be trusted to understand how time is measured on thier own home planet!
