Rocky Fans Line Up in Philly: The thousands queued up outside the Philadelphia Civic Center last Thursday were waiting for tickets to a big fight. Not for Tyson, but for Rocky. Fans slept outside the center hoping to get a ticket to the fight scene in "Rocky V." Within about an hour, people had grabbed up 16,000 of the 20,000 tickets for two days of filming in Sylvester Stallone's latest installment of the Rocky Balboa saga. For each day of filming, Thursday and Friday, an audience of 10,000 is needed. Dave Fulton, the film's publicist, has refused to say who would fight in the movie's final scene. The movie is scheduled for release in November by United Artists Pictures Inc.
