Mostly female crowd catches GJ's midnight showing of New Moon

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Grand Junction movie theater had to open up two extra screens to accomodate all the eager fans wanting to be the first to see New Moon.

The fans were lined up early Thursday to get the best seats possible outside of Regal Cinemas.

Nationwide, the reviews have been mixed, but that's not stopping crowds from buying their tickets early. The movie is expected to make up to $200 million it's opening weekend.
