A quick search on the site reveals tickets for the 12:01 a.m. July 20 shows are now on sale in San Franscisco, Los Angeles and New York. Is it on sale in your city yet? Will these tickets sales be taken down? We've got the links after the jump.

We've contacted Fandango to get some more information on these tickets (such as, is this the earliest advance tickets have ever been on sale?) but, for now, here are the links we've found:

It seems like only tickets for AMC IMAX theaters are now on sale, but we'll update this story when we have more information or in the likely case these get shut down.

Did you buy your tickets yet?

UPDATE 1: Several people have said that tickets went on sale, in the theater, when Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol was released with The Dark Knight Rises prologue. New York, for example, has "been sold out for weeks" according to The Film Stage.
