    Has anyone from Chattanooga checked with your local IMAX theater to see if Clones will be playing there?

    It is evident that it will not be playing in Georgia (I hope I'm wrong) so Chattanooga would be the closest place.

    Allie Fox,

    I've called the Aquarium IMAX in Chattanooga, but so far they say they don't know if they will run Clones.

    Given my luck, I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for them to show it. :(

    So what's the word?

    I see in the IMAX database that Chattanooga is listed on the "TO GET" list. Is there any new information?

    If there's hope for you guys there might be hope for Hothlanta after all.

    Unfortunately, I have no new information yet. I looked at the IMAX site after your last post, but can't find anything at all about Clones. Where did you find it?

    I'll let you know if I find anything else out.

    OK, I found the database you were talking about, I think. It's contradictory. I'll try to get TFN to clarify. While it says Chatt. is confirmed to show it, also says Chatt. is confirmed NOT to show it. There's only one IMAX here (the Aquarium), so something's screwy.

    BTW the TFN site is only reporting what others call in and tell them about thier local IMAX theaters. They are not contacting the theaters themselves.....

    That would probably explain the discrepancies on the TFN page.

    I personally called the Aquarium IMAX and spoke to the manager. It was he who informed me that it would not be coming.

    On the bright side. . .

    I also spoke with the manager of the Regal Cinemas Mall of Georgia IMAX and he too informed me that there would be "NO CLONES" at his location. As I read it this morning that has been contradicted by corporate staff at Regal who inform that it WILL be coming to Atlanta.

    That's not too far for you guys. Can you say "ROAD TRIP" It would be great to get a few southern FanForce groups to meet in Atlanta again.

    Huntsville is going to get it!
    Word came in this weekend that the MGR was able to make some things happen and they look to be showing it opening weekend.
    Stay tuned for more info.

    If it does all become official , the Alabama FF groups (swsyndicate.com) and members of the 501st and Rebel Legion plan to attend in costume Sat Nov 2nd too.

    Keep the fingers crossed!

    Allie, Bama,

    That's great news. I'll talk to my SW friend here and see if he wants to travel to Atlanta or Birmingham and see the film with your groups. Unfortunately, I'll be out of state on Nov. 1 and 2. Maybe the weekend after that....

    I can't reach anyone at Chattanooga IMAX.

    However, StarWars.com says Nashville is confirmed to show Clones on IMAX. I called there, and it starts Nov. 1, but couldn't find out showing times.

    Obivolkenobi and I plan to see Clones in Nashville on Nov. 13. We may travel to Birmingham and Atlanta on later dates, once our schedules match. I have to proceed on the assumption Clones isn't coming here to 'Nooga.

    Let me know when (and if) you plan on seeing AOTC IMAX in Atlanta. Maybe we can get together.

    Latest news: I called (and finally got through) to the Tennessee Aquarium IMAX, and they say they will not have Clones. "All of our films will be educational."

    Pooey on them.

    Edit: I just found their web site, and they don't have Clones listed with the other movies. They are, however, going to show "Nutcracker." How is that educational??? I thought it was a fantasy story (hmmmm....kinda like Star Wars?)
