Tickets for Michael Jackson’s This Is It documentary went on sale this weekend, and according to the AP, fans in Los Angeles lined up three days early and snatched up all the advance screening tix in two hours. However, the official This Is It site shows plenty of tickets still available at dozens of movie theaters around Los Angeles. Even though This Is It will only be in theaters for a limited engagement of two weeks, tickets to see the film cost the same amount as any other movie.

As Rolling Stone previously reported, This Is It will hit theaters on October 28th, with advanced screenings planned for October 27th in approximately 25 cities around the world. This Is It, directed by Kenny Ortega, was culled from hours of footage from rehearsals of Jackson’s planned run of 50 shows at London’s O2 Arena. A new Jackson song from the film, titled “This Is It,” will be released on October 12th, with the film’s two-disc soundtrack to follow on October 27th. Two versions of “This Is It,” which features background vocals courtesy of the Jackson brothers, will appear on the soundtrack.

Look back at pivotal moments in Jackson’s career.

An excerpt of Jackson rehearsing Thriller’s “Human Nature” from This Is It was recently unveiled, just days after the film’s trailer debuted at the MTV Video Music Awards. Following its limited two-week theatrical run, a DVD release of This Is It is expected by the end of the year.
