Jackson Family Finally Scores 'This Is It' Tix

10/23/2009 3:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's family has just gotten a cache of tickets to "This Is It" -- but not everyone is going.



We've learned Sony reps gave 60 tickets to Katherine Jackson's assistant last night at a special screening for the movie. We're also told Jackie Jackson, along with some of Michael's nieces and nephews, also attended and enjoyed it.

No word on why it took so long for the Jackson's to get the tickets, because Sony had been saying for more than a week they had already been delivered.

We're told Katherine and La Toya have both said they're not going to see the movie. We're told Michael's 3 kids want to see it.

Oh I am crying just thinking how I am gonna deal with seeing this....I dnt knw how Katherine would handle seeing it....I got 9 tix so far as I figure at least once I should be able to open my eyes and see thru the tears!

The last time I saw him was at the hotel in London in March 2009 - I will never forget that. What makes it worse is having to go past that same hotel almost everyday :(

Forever in my heart...Love you Michael xxxx

I really think his whole family should see it.We know he gave up his life for THis Is It and sony sucks but Michael wanted his kids and fans to see him again.This is the last time we will see him perform even though it wont be as great as it would have been its still him doing what he loved.His MOM should be there with the kids. susan

Michael was likely doing this concert for many reasons; probably most importantly, however, was for his children. Of course they want to see it, they are his number one fans! It will definitely be a bittersweet moment for all of us who see the movie; wonderful to see him at home onstage, devastating to understand the reality of his death and that "This Is It".

For Sure    

Well it is about time. I can totally understand why Katherine doesn't want to see it...Why would she want to see such a vibrant Genius artist(her son) on the screen knowing he passed way before his time. Always remember there are only 3 things in life you cannot replace
1.a Biological mother (you can only have one many can adopt but only 1)
2. a Biological Father (same as above)
3. your child.....

I hope the children see This is it ...so they can see their father at work....in what he loved to do....

God bless u Katherine...and stop letting your grown kids take advantage.. love all of those grandchildren...and great grandchildren....

i have my ticket also, and i am very anxious about the movie, i just dont want them to show michael in a bad light!!! i miss him so much and felt i needed this for another step towards closure for him.. he will live on forever but i dint want to miss the man that was the kindest soul and most loved person there ever will be..it is his last and final performance and i just needed to see him live for the last time.i am sure one day katherine will watch it, but for her now it just isnt the time, i am a mother and i dont think i could see something like that either. the kids will see it, they need to see him at his best like they always remember him THE BEST FATHER YOU COULD EVER IMAGINE!!! PARIS SAID IT PERFECTLEY!!!sue from tampa

No he was doing it for the money. He was going broke.
