Steph:  So you know that movie Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy?

Sara:  Yeah. I’ve heard of it but I haven’t seen it. Have you?

Steph:  Yeah. I saw it last weekend. I tried to go on opening night but it was sold out.

Sara:  It was? I had no idea it was so popular.

Steph:  Yeah. It’s weird. It kind of surprised everyone. And all these people went and sold it out. I couldn’t believe it myself.

Sara:  Isn’t that based on a book?

Steph:  It is. Yeah. The book came out, I think it was in the 80s at some point. I don’t know exactly when. But it’s a great book.

Sara:  What’s the story? I don’t even know.

Steph:  Well, it’s interesting. Like, this alien construction crew is about to demolish the Earth. And so, I dunno. It’s pretty complicated. I guess that’ll start you off. I don’t want to give away the story or anything.

Sara:  Sounds good.

Steph:  Yeah. It’s interesting to say the least.

It’s really irritating to go to a movie that’s sold out. You get all excited to go and then all of the sudden you find out your plans have been shattered.
One of the ways to avoid this from happening is buying your ticket in advance. You can buy your tickets online for most shows.
In the end, * _The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy*_ was a great movie. I just wish I had read my hitchhiker’s guide and had bought my tickets in advance.
