    Hey all,

    The B-Movie Film Festival is throwing a Star Wars party Dec. 31st, 9am-2pm. They'll be a costume contest, vendors, raffles (with monies raised going to St. Jude's Children's Hospital), games, etc. Admission is $10 for 5 hours of fun. As a free bonus during the even we'll probably have some fans films playing, maybe the Holiday special, and after midnight "The Brazilian Star Wars". It'll be at the Palace Movie Theater on James St in Eastwood suburb of Syracuse. www.bmoviefest.com for more info.

    Thanks!

    -Ron

    Sounds like there are a couple of us in Rochester that are toying with coming out for this. We'll have to see once we get closer to the end of December.

    we've decided to broaden things a little, read on:

    "SCIENCE-FICTION" CELEBRATION AT THE PALACE MOVIE THEATER

    **Press Release** Nov. 21st, 2005 ? Syracuse NY. Looking for a fun alternative to the usual choices on New Years Eve for yourself or your family? Then come join The B-Movie Film Festival and The Palace Movie Theater for a fun-filled ?Science-Fiction? inspired New Year?s Eve celebration!

    Starting at 9pm, the lobby will be opened for video games, raffles, merchandise, charity fund raisers? AND if you come in dressed as your favorite sci-fi movie character, you can compete in our costume contest and win up to $100 worth of prizes.

    Around 10pm, we?ll start playing some sci-fi rarities and fan films. Schedule on these will vary. At 11:45pm, we?ll watch the ball drop and welcome in the New Year!

    Then shortly after midnight, we will screen the ultra rare ?Brazilian Star Wars?. Filmthreat.com gave the movie 5 stars, noting ? It is impossible to imagine another film as ridiculous as this could exist.?

    Ticket prices are $10 per person, which covers the entire evening (5 hours!). The Palace Movie Theater (463-9240) is located at 2384 James St, in the Eastwood suburb of Syracuse. The Palace will have its usual selection of great concessions on hand as well.

    Well, it's just about here - we have a fun night planned, looks to be real busy. We've got the costume contest, we've got video games, we have raffles for charity, we have a really cool, unique presentation of a rare Sci-Fi movie, and we have the crazy, insane "Planet Wars" (aka The Brazilian Star Wars"). Hope to see you guys there!

    I don't think anyone from Rochester will be trekking out for this. We've decided to have our own party here in town.

    Good luck on the event!

    Ah, sorry to hear. I want to do more stuff like this, but gotta get a crowd to be able to do just that. Keep us in mind next time, and have a great new year!
