    Hmm not too active in here....Where did yall go to see AOTC if youve seen it? And why was SW relegated to the old Pembroke theatres in Va Beach? I know Columbus had Spider Man, but that seemed a 'lil cheap. Lucas wanted top quality theatres I thought? THeres plenty 'o movies they cuda put in Pembroke instead of Columbus..... Well Im ramblin just to get somthin goin in here. Take it away!

    So far I've seen AOTC five times, with all viewings at Pembroke. This is kind of odd considering that I live near ODU (Larchmont); McMall is so much closer. I've managed to see AOTC four out of five times on one of their two larger screens...no complaints.

    Apart from the Commodore Theater, where do you guys suggest as the best place here in Tidewater to see AOTC. Based on your experience, who has the best sound system, projectors, etc?

    Yup, the AMC 24. Hmm...is it still playing on any of the big screens there? Anyway, I first saw it at the AMC 24 at 12:01. Second time at some old theater in NC. Third time at Macarthur Center, and even though it was on one of the "small" screens it was quite acceptable. FEEL THE SOUND!!! Yea, what is up with the Commodore? Yea, I'm sure Hollywood Ending and that stupid Bullock movie got them more ticket sales than AOTC would. And this time, the demands werent even as severe so I dont understand what the problem is. They only asked for like 70% of the first 2 weeks...I've heard demands as high as 90%, and theaters are already lowering the screen count or dropping it completely. Get over it. Jeez.

    Didn't Pembroke used to have 2 THX screens? Why was the certification lost? Last time I went there, it smelled bad inside and my Mountain Dew was warm and flat. Now that Regals sell Coke products there isn't any point going to one. Why? No Mountain Dew. And AMC carries Coke products also, but they have the beautiful Icee. Mmmm...cherry icee.

    since I live in Richmond I saw Episode II at three different places, the Regal 20 at Virginia Commons Shopping Center, the Short Pump 14 and at the Regal 6 on East Ridge Road. I have seen AOTC a total of 9 times and plan on making it an even 10 pretty soon. Only one theatre I know of is still showing it at the moment.

    I spend my life accounting
    With figures and such
    To what is my life amounting
    It figures, not much
    I have a secret desire
    Hiding deep in my soul
    It sets my heart afire
    To see me in this role

    I wanna be a producer
    With a hit show on Broadway
    I wanna be a producer
    Lunch at Sardi's every day
    I wanna be a producer
    Sport a top hat and a cane
    I wanna be a producer
    And drive those chorus girls insane!

    I wanna be a producer
    And sleep until half-past two
    I wanna be a producer
    And say, "You, you, you..........not you"
    I wanna be a producer
    Wear a tux on op'ning nights!
    I wanna be a producer
    And see my name "Leo Bloom" in lights!

    He wants to be a producer
    Sell it, girls!
    Of a great big Broadway smash
    Don't forget the balcony!
    He wants to be a producer
    Ev'ry pocket stuffed with cash
    He wants to be a producer
    Pinch our cheeks 'til we cry Ouch!
    He wants to be a producer
    With a great big casting couch!


    I wanna be the greatest, grandest
    And most fabulous producer in the world

    He wants to be a producer
    He wants to dine with a duchess and a duke

    I just gotta be a producer
    Drink champagne until I puke
    I wanna be a producer
    Show the world just what I've got
    I'm gonna put on shows
    That will enthrall 'em
    Read my name in Winchell's column!
    I wanna be a producer........



    'Cause it's everything I'm not.

    It looks like the only way a chapter is gonna start is if someone takes the lead JK. You might wanna just schedule a meeting yourself and see who shows up. That's probably the only way it's going to happen. Doesn't matter how, so long as it does. :)
