    I will be there from the onset with GMJ...and I really hope to see a strong showing as well. I feel like we maygenerate a strong sympathy vote in the eyes of the media so be sure to bring out your best SW "display" stuff. We will have a couple of Ep2 "Standeez" as well as our banner. Donations for a charity raffle will also be much appreciated. Any way...see you there.

    I just got my 12:01am ticket, does anyone know if that showing will be on the Big Screen (70 ft wide)?

    The last time I talked with the Tinsletown management, they tentatively thought they'd be getting four or five prints of EP2. They assured me that EP2 would be premiering in their biggest auditoriums on their biggest screens for the midnight shows, and that those theaters would accommodate a total of about 2,000 people. It's going to be quite a night at the Tinsletown!

    JangoFettClone, when are you planning on joining us at the Tinsletown? I know you already have your ticket in hand, but we hope you'll join us at some point early for the overall premiere/line experience!

    I'll probably stop by this weekend to say hi. I've already stopped over at the Legacy last weekend.

    There's just not enough hours in a day.

    LINE OFF!!!

    Update as of 7PM on Sunday night:

    Due to reports of very bad weather moving in - not to mention that we've been told that the entire area surrounding the Tinsletown's box offices floods during heavy rain - the line has been temporarily called off.

    We will return and set everything back up on Monday morning.

    No.. my sister-in-law who had small cell lung cancer last year was doing ok for a while but they discovered she has brain tumors now (they were causing swelling and giving her difficulty moving etc) :( She's having to get radiation every day and my husband is taking her, so that with two friends coming in from out of town - I just don't want to deal with lines.

    Yippieeee, how about you get off your computer and get in line somewhere? Better yet, you can be the chump who can hold our spot when the weather gets bad and the line area floods. We're always looking for a good lackey who is good at menial chores.

    By the way... LINE ON!!!

    GREAT NEWS!

    The one and only Dark Lord of the Sith.... Darth Vader, Dave Prowse, dropped by the Grapevine Tinseltown today to say hello to the FanForce members in line. We will post pictures of Mr. Prowse's visit - and others from the line - later this week.

    Mr. Prowse will be returning to the Fort Worth Tinseltown line on Wednesday for the midnight premiere of Episode II. Also, look for him to make appearances on local newscasts over the next couple of days.

    In addition, the Fort Worth Star Telegram interviewed and photographed the Tinseltown line today. Check your newspaper tomorrow if that story is run.

    That's all for now! Come join us in line. The fun is just starting!

    The line is starting to get bigger....Just got two new members this afternoon and it looks like there will be a few more before nightfall. Also, the heckling factor has not really increased that much, but the crazy questions persist. "What are you waiting here for?" is my personal favorite. Can people not read anymore?????

    After hearing that for a month, I think the answer to that question is a resounding no.

    However, my favorite response to the above question is "Titanic 2". I actually had some teenagers believing it was real. ;)

    Yeah, this one stupid bitch in Plano jumped out of her car and yelled at us in her best, backwater, bayou accent, "don't you know they're still selling tickets?"
    "you can get them right now!"

    "You don't have to wait in line!"

    I wanted to ask her if her daddy was Jed Clampet, but cooler heads prevailed.

    Those are the kinda people that are the perfect example why cloning would be a bad thing.
