    I'm in...
    will probably go down there straight from work (Oak Lawn) rather than drive home (Mokena) and come back...which will probably get me there around 3:00 to 3:30 pm

    I'm about 60% sure I'll be there. Just have to see if the wife will be off of work that day so she can watch my little man.

    I called the "box office" or whatever number was listed for this, and asked them what version they will be showing. The guy had no idea cuz all it said was "Star Wars"! I swear people are stupid. I asked if he could look into it for me and give me a call back, and they said they can't do that sort of thing.........kind of pisses me off....but whatever.

    I will defenitely be going, as I am currently trying to figure out how I'm getting down there after work. Since I do not have a costume, I'll probably just wear my CF shirt like I did on Sunday when I went to Ravinia...maybe this time I can actually see/meet some CF peeps...really didn't see anyone at Ravinia in a CF shirt...

    wearing a costume will be dictated by the weather..
    ;)

    both of my costumes are very warm....I have done a serious amount of sweating in them of late...

    come to think of it....
    most of the costumes are very warm....

    Ill be there, probably with Phyllis, but not in costume.
    Ill be comming from swimming, so sitting and watching a movie will be a nice relief.
    Of course, Lionel will be in costume...

    It should be close enough to darkness by that point. I'll be heading out there with a group from my school sometime around 4. I am soooooo tempted to parade around in my new costume, especially since I am less than 24 hours removed from GenCon this past weekend.

    I wish I could be there. Y'all have fun. The weather is perfect for costumes unless you are wearing Leia's bikini costume.

    I'm not going to arrive until between 730 and 8pm so I've got the same question as Shiny, is there someone we can call when we get there so we can find the CF group?

    I'll be wearing my CF shirt so please keep an eye out for me but I know it'll very difficult with that huge of a crowd.

    And if someone does have a cel number please PM us as I know it'd probably be a little odd to post it publicly. Thanks.

    <out of town anal daddy nerd whose opinion can be take or left for what it's worth>

    just bear in mind that if there's a large group of folks coming very late, and a really sweet spot staked out in front, those further back may frown upon the huge CF contingent in their shiny shirts taking up all the best real estate.

    in other words, bring lots of blankets, i suppose.

    (I only mention it because I've heard of issues like this in the past with similar outdoor events.)

    Oh man, wasn't last night grand? To be able to finally see ANH on a big screen with that kick ass sound system(3 words: Death. Star. Explosion!!!!). All of the photo ops were great. I had no idea that so many young people were so into Star Wars. I'll never forget the kids that asked a few of us for autographs after the show.
