Doctor Strange Los Angeles Red Carpet Premiere

Doctor Strange Red Carpet Premiere
TCL Chinese Theatre Imax

The set up for the Doctor Strange premiere was a little weird.  They were using both the TCL Chinese Theatre and the El Capitan Theatre was used for overflow.  The sidewalk was split with two lines of barricades to create a small “fan area.”   I arrived about 10 minutes after they closed off the fan area, but security allowed us to lineup along the back barricades, but we had to have our bags checked in order to stand there.

I got some really good pictures, but the ones I managed to take of Benedict Cumberbatch weren’t very good.  I happened to be directly behind autograph hunters so large boards kept blocking my shots.  Those people don’t stay in place, either, and they would move along as the stars made their way down the line.

Near the end of the arrivals, I saw Karl Urban arrive, but he didn’t come across to where the fans were and was rushing towards the theater.

I loved Doctor Strange, which I’ll write more about in my post from the advance screening I attended as part of Entertainment Weekly’s PopFest.

TTFN,
