Now it’s just a question of deciding when to brave the mockingjay pin-sporting crowds to catch the bloodbath. Some theaters are showing the IMAX version of the movie as soon as tomorrow morning before the crack of dawn, including the AMC theaters in Georgetown, Tysons Corner and Potomac Mills (where the 2D version will also be screening about the same time). What else could you possibly want to do around 3 a.m.?

A wider release begins at midnight Friday morning, including a showing at the storied Uptown. If you’d prefer to let the hype die down — and value your sleep — head to the Going Out Guide for a full list of showtimes for the standard movie or the IMAX version.
