Based on photos posted to Twitter by @ChineseTheatres and @chipsmovie, it appears dozens of people turned up to catch a glimpse of the movie’s stars.

Despite being founded in 1995 and being the longest running “CHiPs” site on the Internet, “CHiPs” Online was not invited to the premiere. A review of the film will have to wait until a later date.

CHIPS opens in theaters on Friday, March 24th.
