Aaron Paul scattered hundreds of tickets to a showing of the new Breaking Bad film around downtown Boise as a scavenger hunt for fans

BOISE, Idaho — There were only two ways to get tickets to Tuesday night's premiere of the Breaking Bad movie starring Idaho's Aaron Paul. Fans could have won them on the radio - or found them. 

A scavenger hunt led fans in Boise to tickets of the "El Camino" premiere hidden around the city. Aaron Paul started tweeting out the locations of tickets on Tuesday afternoon.

Those hoping to get their hands on the tickets eagerly watched their phones, tuned to Paul's Twitter page in front of the state capitol building.

Some tickets were also available through local radio station contests earlier in the week.

El Camino is written and directed by the original show's creator, Vince Gilligan, and follows fugitive Jesse Pinkman as he runs from his captors, the law and his past.

The film premiered on Tuesday night at the Egyptian Theater in Boise.

700 fans filled the Egyptian Theater for the early screening. El Camino comes out for everyone else on Netflix Oct. 11.

Paul teased to Pie Hole as the last location for tickets, just before 5:00 p.m.
