    There is already a thread on this topic in the SSWS pages, but I thought it deserved a shout here too.
    I, for one, think that this should be a group event when/if it happens. How cool would that be to see Yoda kickin butt on a 3 story high screen? I dont know that it will be as impressive as Cinerama, but I would enjoy it nonetheless. Any other takers?

    Oh, yes. When it comes to the IMAX, I'll be ready to go with a group, preferably in costume.

    Greetings Guys,

    The clarity of the 70mm IMAX format will be VERY close to the quality of the digital projection at the Cinerama. Particually with the new IMAX DMR (Digital Re-mastering) transfer process.

    And having a 40-foot tall Yoda... Well, that is something to get excited about. :D

    Later,

    I want to go, but I don't know if I'll time, knowing my parents they'll just say ok let's go see it on short notice and I'll have to cancel all plans.

    Even as we speak, the little gnomes that help plan events and make things happen are running around trying to make the IMAX opening a beautiful costumed spectacle.

    :D

    Stay tuned for more information.

    I don't know many people here but I'd still love to go. I'll be bringing my sister, X-AverySolo too. It'll be so cool!

    We're planning on being out there for the midnight showing on Thursday night (Halloween Night) and then all day Friday for Opening Day events!

    So if you can't come for the Midnight show, come on Friday!

    I'll be there Friday and Saturday. I'm probably going to see the 9-something PM show on Friday for starters.

    Here is the "official" SSWS announcement!

    Hey Gang,

    As I'm sure you all already know Star Wars EPISODE II is opening up at the Seattle IMAX theatre at Pacific Science Center.

    We want to have some fun with this so let's all get together on Friday and celebrate. Let's all get meet at the theatre at 6:00 am and make some early morning noise! Let's get everyone there (especially if you're an Alpha Base or Garrison Titan member or have a Star Wars costume) with signs in hand saying "Honk if you like Star Wars." Let's throw a rally outside of the theatre for everyone going to work and show
    them what Fandom is all about. Let's see if we can get everyone traveling along Denny Way to honk outside of the theatre while we're waiting for the film.

    The theatre has offered the use of the facility and will be providing coffee and donuts and they will also have food for lunch. The line for EP II will start at our eastern-most ticket booth and will run east down the fence toward the Space Needle. Those with costume and signs who
    would like to rally and make some noise will gather there and move out front when everyone is there.

    Contact PunkJr (Jason) at DarthDepot@SeattleStarWars.com if you can
    be there in or out of costume to rally outside of the theatre.

    Let's see if we can make a day of it, have some fun and enjoy EPII on the huge IMAX screen.

    Showtime's are as follows:

    Friday, November 1
    12:01 am
    4:45 pm
    7:15 pm
    9:15 pm
    Midnight

    If you are interested in going to the 12:01 am show Friday morning (or late Thursday night) there are plenty of tickets available for the that show. No, that show was no bought out by anyone :)

    You can order tickets at the IMAX box office, over the phone at 1-800-325-SEAT, or online at http://www.pacsci.org/imax/#ep2.

    Check out the SSWS site for directions to the theatre. Contact PunkJr (Jason) at DarthDepot@SeattleStarWars.com if you can be there in or out of costume to rally outside of the theatre.

    See you all there and let's have some fun!
