Like I said, thanks to this lucky happenstance and the helpful people at Showcase Cinemas, I was able to take my friend Mary along with me. Neither of us had ever been to a proper movie premiere before, so we were pretty excited! I do have to say that I am a massive fan of superhero movies, especially Marvel. I've seen pretty much every Marvel movie that's come out since the first X Men film in 2000. I have been to plenty of midnight releases (The Avengers, The Amazing Spider Man, etc.), but nothing like this.
Mary and I got into London about 2 hours before the premiere and got dinner (which I'll post about later), and made our way to Leicester Square. It was packed! We had to wait for a few minutes before the doors opened, but when it was time to go into the theatre, we were led onto the red carpet. Robert Downey Jr was just a couple feet away from us (very exciting! but he's shorter than expected in person). It was pretty surreal, so of course we needed a picture to document our first red carpet!

Once we found our seats and settled in (after Mary ran into Stanley Tucci), we watched the rest of the red carpet on the screen. We also got to check out our goodies...
|Iron Man 3D glasses...I totally kept them.|
|Blurry, but I was far back, whoops.|
If anyone has already seen it, let me know what you think!
