    I noticed in the movie listings that AOTC isn't listed after tomorrow at the Regal 16 Crossroads. Quail Springs shows no times after today, and the Cinemark Tinseltown goes to one showing a day (9:10pm) after Thursday. Sigh. I know this is the way of things. It just seems kinda sad to see it on the way out.

    Anyone have interesting news on when the video release will hit stores?

    Yes, this is sad news. :( I'm going to go see it tonight (possibly for the last time in theaters). Bummer. :( IIRC, TPM ran well through August in most theaters. Why are they cutting off AOTC already?

    Here on this site they have a story on the DVD. It was listed as being released Nov. 26, but an employee sent a list in saying it has been moved to Nov.12. Check the main news page for more info.

    I did get to see AOTC again today. It's still good the 6th time around. ;)

    BTW, this screening was for the hearing impared, so there were subtitles throughout the whole thing. There were a few differences, though; like when the Jedi in Greyshade's speeder zoomed by the pod with the Dug and Aleena it, when the Dug says "Jedi poodoo", the text said something totally different. Weird.

    Quite a few weeks ago, The Onion ran a pic with blurb touting: "Frugal Star Wars fan first in line for 99-cent showing of Attack of the Clones".

    Just wait, kiddies! AotC is coming to a discount theater near you!

    I don't like the Northpark theater, though. It smells. :( :p

    Is that theater down by the Circuit City on Shields & I-240 still open? I haven't been back there since ... well, shall we say, I saw something I really didn't want to.

    I'm pretty sure the I-240 & Shields theater is dead (and no big loss either, considering their less-than-human clientele).
    However, the Crossroads 8 is now doing the bargain movies. I saw something there recently and the theater wasn't too bad. Went there all the time before the Regal opened. I don't remember the seats being so uncomfortable, though.

    Aye, yee've been coddled 'n spoiled by the megaplexes, my wee lass!

    Actually, though the seats are "uncomfortable" by the "new standard", the Crossroads 8 theater has been kept quite clean, and I haven't seen anything scary there myself. For a bargain show, it's worth the trip. I caught additional viewings of Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and a first viewing of something... kinda forgetable now that I can't remember it...

    It's good to see at least something staying around from the realm of bargain theaters. Still, my favorite thing is the Winchester drive-in. Aaaah, to have the time to do that again... busy busy busy.
