    So, this is going to be a huge SW happening and we'll probably be teaming up with our costuming friends at the theater.

    More information will follow on that but for now I'm doing the happy dance [face_dancing] [face_dancing] [face_dancing] [face_dancing] [face_dancing]

    OK, there are two things going on here . . . I think 8-}

    1) We will go to the 8/15 midnight (or 12:01am) release as a group, no costume required.

    2) The 501st and Rebel Legion have invited us to help wrangle (unless you have a costume approved by one of the groups). That will be on Saturday. We are hoping for AMC Concord Mills. Here is something I posted that I'm reposting here:


    Our contact at the AMC Concord Mills is meeting with his manager Thursday. The situation is this:

    AMC Promotions who work with Fathom Events (who basically own the lobbies in AMC now) has said no to us being there because they cannot sell us to make money for Fathom. (Apparently everything in the lobby can be sold . . . or something.)

    However, AMC Marketing has said yes we can be there because it is good marketing for the theater.

    Our contact will be speaking with the district manager who will hopefully say yes. [face_praying]

    Our backup plan if AMC says no is to go to either Regal Park Place or see if the Grand Cinemas in Ardsley Town Centre will be having the Clone Wars.


    I'll update this as I get information.
