Star Trek: Into Darkness Premiere

I've been attending quite a few premieres for the past two years, and while it's a lot of waiting in line, it can also be a lot of fun. The Star Trek Into Darkness premiere was the first time I was at a premiere which had fan grandstands/bleachers. Everyone one in the bleachers received a wristband to watch the movie, but alas we were not in the Dolby Theatre where the stars were, but were in one of the six theaters in the Chinese 6 Theatres inside the Hollywood & Highland Center.
I went with a friend of mine from work and we walked around a bit looking for the line. During which time I took a couple of pictures of the set-up, and my friend was almost "kidnapped" by two women dress as Catwoman. That was a bit of a funny story, but I won't go into that.

Usually, you aren't allowed cameras, but I had my small camera in my purse (which I could have hidden if they did a bag search if necessary) so I was able to get some pictures.

The movie had filmed for about a day at my work, but when I saw the film I was completely surprised by how many scenes they filmed.
