Star Wars fans, rejoice!

Today is the day Star Wars: The Force Awakes opens in theaters. Some people are already lining up now at theaters across the country.

We do know there are folks lined up in Grand Blanc right now--about 30 to 40 people are waiting for the doors to open. The first showings start at 7 p.m.

At theaters around the metro, they are preparing for big crowds. 

If you plan on dressing up, you'll want to check the theater's policy. Some are not allowing masks.

At the Emagine Theaters, they are encouraging people to come in costume. They will be having a costume contest.

At the Phoenix Theaters, they are playing the movies non-stop through the early morning hours.

May the force be with you.
