    Already have a very clean version bro! You can leave yours in Cali, wouldn't want you trekking across state lines with that lava hot thing in your carry-on. Unless of course you like looking at it on the plane. :p And no Bosh, we're talking about a movie not that other hot thing in his "carry-on" that he promised to give only to you.

    This is cool. I'm going to try my best to make it here. Can I bring a date? Because I don't have one. & if I can make it, I'm going to go stag. By stag, I mean alone. By alone, I mean by myself.

    Sure, dates are allowed. Though be warned, CF parties are heavy on the Star Wars...so if they're not down with the Force, you may find yourself spending most of your time keeping them entertained (or at least not freaked out).

    What?? You mean I might actually see Dartha?

    Lord knows I (almost) never saw him in L.A., where he was allegedly in line...

    sorry to report that what I thought I could do this day,
    I can not.......and so, I can not even attend for a short
    while in the afternoon as I had planned.
    and find myself muttering.....not good.

    Since a number of the changes on the OT DVDs were supposedly made to make the 6-film series flow better when viewed together, it might be appropiate to watch the OT DVDs in this situation. At least to see if the changes work better when viewed with the prequels.

    Street parking is very limited, unless you like walking.

    It seems we have several LaserDisc copies of the Holy Trilogy available. For my money, if we have the equivilent on DVD media (meaning, DVD copies of the pre-SE LD movies) we should use that. I've been through 3 LD players in the last two years, and the fewer times I have to move it, the less chance there is of it breaking.

    I do have DVD copies of the LDs. I can bring them if you want. I'm not sure of the quality as I have yet to watch them, thanks WoW.

    seriously, what's our projection setup again? we're not projecting anamorphically are we? i'm not sure if the versions i have feature anamorphic playback.

    Generally, the DVD players I have dealt with can be set to whatever aspect ratio is needed, so we should be good.

    On a sillier note, I see that this thread also has an undeleted zionprime post. Internet gold, baby!

    i have the Star Wars Holiday Special converted into slides.

    I was hoping we could project the slides while I play the soundtrack on my old 8-track machine.

    I'll also tapdance.
