The green carpet is down. Everything is set. We're just waiting on the stars and the world premiere of "We Are Marshall."

The rumor mill is running rampant about who might be arriving for the show Tuesday night.

Actor Matthew McConaughey is friends with the likes of Oprah and Lance Armstrong, but who knows if they are actually coming.

We do know Warner Brothers is bringing a few planeloads of executives from the west coast.

It will be a special night in Huntington.

The movie telling the story of the Marshall plane crash and Hollywood glitz making for a memorable party.

Many hours before the first Mathew McConaughey or Kate Mare green carpet sighting, dozens of shutterbugs came down to get a pre-premiere glimpse and get snapshot or two, to just be a part of Hollywood in Huntington history.

In the midst of premiere row, inside the old Villlage Roaster, they were pouring morning coffee, with "We Are Marshall" gift cups on the sale rack.

A long line formed first thing Tuesday morning for people picking up their premiere tickets for the Keith Albee Theatre.

It was crowded, but exciting.

It was also something of a who's who of Marshall University and Huntington people.

The packets include commemorative tickets for the movie and a special ticket for the gala party afterward at the Big Sandy Superstore Arena.

The folks at the Marshall Artist Series, who are putting all this together, also want to remind everyone to bring each of the tickets for tonight.

There is a glossy, commemorative ticket. it's a keepsake.

It won't get you into any of the events.

The other tickets will provide entry.
