Today was opening day for Spiderman: No Way Home. I saw the 12:30 showing at AMC in Century City, CA. Before I get into the meat of the post, just know that I will not be giving away any spoilers. Although I will be reviewing the movie, I will be giving metaphors only that will make sense after you have seen the movie.
First things first, if you are going to see the movie, between now and Christmas at least, I recommend arriving early. Despite running late, I arrived at the mall at 12:30 almost on the dot. It took 15 minutes to find parking, and then I had to find the movie theatre. I arrived at about 12:50, just as the movie was starting.
It was crowded
Today at least, there are crowds of people going to see Spiderman, not to mention all of the people doing their holiday shopping at the mall. For me, that’s just a bit too stressful for me to leave it to that much of a chance. I was lucky, but I thought I was going to have to change my ticket. If you don’t mind risking needing to switch to a later showtime, then you can cut it close like I did, but in my opinion, you are better off just leaving early.
Is Spiderman: No Way Home worth seeing?
If you haven’t bought your tickets or if you haven’t decided if you want to see the movie, I highly recommend it. It was Into the Spiderverse meets Batman vs Superman. I won’t give away what actually happened, but it really shows what kind of person and what kind of hero Peter Parker is.
After Credits Scenes & Parking Validation
Finally, you should know that are two after credit scenes, so unless you want to miss them, you’re going to want to stay under the very end of the credits.
One last thing, even though there is parking validation at Westfield Century City, you will likely go over the amount allowed for validation. I was late for the movie and went over by five minutes, which ultimately resulted in a $4 charge. Still get the validation, but know that you will likely owe money over that amount.
I would also ask that you do not post any spoilers about the movie here until January 2022. If you would like to comment after seeing the movie, feel free to email me at email@example.com. I would love to see what you think! We just do not want to spoiler the movie for anyone who hasn’t seen it yet. I look forward to hearing from you!
