All across the country this weekend people headed to the movies, packed the theaters and watched Fahrenheit 9/11. Last week we asked that people take pictures of their opening night experiences, but we never expected to see pictures like these. In every town and every city, long lines and sold out shows. Yesterday we posted the stories we were receiving and below we have posted the photographs. If you don't have much time, we encourage you to quickly skip down to Texas and check out the scene there. We'll be posting more pictures and more stories in the coming days, but for now, take a look at what America did this weekend--and what you did alongside your fellow Americans.
Also, a HUGE thank you to everyone who sent in photographs this weekend. We apologize for not being able to write back to each and every one of you. If we used your pictures below, thank you! And if we didn't use your pictures, we still thank you! It is an amazing collection and it boggles the mind. Thank you!

To our friendly cameraman in Wilmington who shot this picture of the packed house, we're sorry you missed the first five minutes of the film, but at least you got to yell at the "President":
Something is amiss in Philly
We're told Johnson City sold out.
It's the same scene at the matinee.
