Avengers : Age of Ultron World Premiere
Part 1: The experience
April 13, 2015
I split the premiere post for Marvel's Avengers Age of Ultron because I had so many photos (which I cut down from an original 443 taken to 50+ being posted) to put into a single post. Part one is focusing on the experience I had at the premiere.

I arrived via the MetroRail at around 5:30pm and the place was incredibly busy, but a bonus of having all lanes closed for the premiere is not waiting for the pedestrian crossing light.

|I don't even know which press stations/websites these are|
While waiting for the arrivals, they gave out Subway sandwiches and Hulk gloves toys. Here are the boxes of the Hulk gloves being unpacked and handed out. They gave most of them to the people on that corner (Hollywood and Orange).

The premiere was sponsored by Harley Davidson and Audi, and I could only get a partial photo of one of the Harleys on the red carpet, but none of the red Audi.
This is the side of the El Capitan marquee from where I had my spot along the barricades.
Just before I went down to the Metro Rail station, I went up the outer steps of the Hollywood & Highland Center to take a photo of the front of the El Capitan marquee.
Because I only wanted to take some pictures of the premiere, I was not disappointed in my experience. Had I camped out all night, I probably couldn't say that. After all, you camp out at premieres in the hope of getting an autograph or photo with a celebrity. I definitely would have had even better photos since I was taking them over people's heads, but that's a small consideration for camping on the street in Hollywood.
