The 2008 Summer Olympics Opening Ceremony will be held at the Beijing National Stadium. It is scheduled to begin at 8:00 p.m. CST (UTC+Cool on 8 August 2008.

It is local time so it should be 8 am Eastern Time zone in US tomorrow, If I don't make a mistake. In that CST = China Standard Time.

Warning: many people said that they didn't see it in the real opening ceremony so it could be fake. It has been removed from youtube but another person uploaded here. If you watch the ceremony live, you may confirm if it's true or not
