Fortunately, the solution was obvious... since Roni would have the Bug, and K had the truck, we could all meet at the Metreon for the midnight show. With appropriate reading material and snackage, we could even take up a decent place in line a couple of hours in advance.
Tickets are purchased, and we're ready to go see a Dementor ass whuppin'!
