    With the release of Star Wars: The Clone Wars this coming August, Star Wars is back where it should be - on the BIG SCREEN. To help get us excited (not that some of us need help getting excited about Star Wars :p), I've arranged something special...

    Beginning this month, and once a month for the next 6 months until the release of CLONE WARS, I've arranged a special viewing of each of the SW films at the theatre I work at. Viewings will be late at night, usually starting at 12:30 AM. Dates are as follows:

    March 15 - TPM
    the rest TBA.

    Movies will be shown in chronological order.

    There are a few conditions:
    *FF members ONLY (sorry, you can't bring your friends). I need to KNOW you, as I'm vouching for you to my boss.
    *Please don't advertise this on your blogs, fan-sites or any such places. We are viewing DVD copies of the films, but I don't want to take the chance of getting shut down or having my work face a fine. Keep it on the down-low as one of the managers is doing it as a favour, and because he's a fellow fan. I will not be posting the location (if you don't already know), but if you need to know, please PM me.

    It's going to be an awesome time!!

    That's awesome Yrol! Thanks for arranging this!

    I REALLY REALLY hope I can make it out at least once! I may have to do some CRAZY shift-swapping and make some sacrifices.

    Unfortunately, the manager who offered to run the screening this weekend, is going to be out of town. And none of the other managers are willing to stay to run it either.

    So, regrettably, this weekends TPM screening is postponed until I can reschedule it.

    Sorry guys - I was really looking forward to this, and I know many of you were too. I'll let you know as soon as I've got another date nailed down.

    We're back ON!! TPM screening will be held THIS SATURDAY, MARCH 22ND.

    The theatre is asking each of you to bring a dollar, that will be donated to a charity - we'll be doing this each viewing. It's not a lot and I think it's a great idea.

    Meet at midnight - sharp!! Back by the BAR area. I won't wait long for straglers so please be on time.

    Again - I'm not posting the location. So if you need to know, PM me. Also, just a reminder - this is for FF members only (spouses and/or children are okay).

    It's just after 5 AM, and I'm just getting home from watching one of the greatest movies on film. A mere 2 hours ago, we finished watching The Phantom Menace on the big screen - and it was GLORIOUS!!! Took me right back to May 1999, when I saw it for the first time (and 12 times after that). Made me feel the same things - awe, shock and gratitude. Awe at the grandeur of film (the scenescapes and visual mastery of so many scenes), shock at things I never expected to see (I didn't know a light saber could do that??!!!) and gratitude towards George Lucas - for continuing to make movies that fuel my imagination, and inspire me never to be afraid to take chances with my dreams.

    I LOVE THE PHANTOM MENACE [face_love] [face_love]

    Thanks to everyone who made it out tonight!! And special thanks to James, who made it all possible =D=

    AOTC on April 12th!!!

    KICK A$$ thanks to Yrol for making this possible as it was May 1999 all over again tonight. The movie gets better and better everytime I see it and back on the big screen was like Yrol said GLORIOUS.

    Bring on Attack of the Clones!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

    That was awesome indeed. Next time I'm going to need some caffeine though. I was staying awake by my sheer love of Star Wars.

    Seeing Phantom Menace on the big screen again? Fun.

    Seeing it with fellow fans and friends? Awesome beyond comparison.
