    hey everyone,

    i just confirmed with the nashville imax that they will be showing EP2 starting on Nov 1st.they had to bump lion king to do it but its a done deal.

    I am currently working on an appearance there that opening night.The 501st has been asked to be at all of the imax openings.I would encourage any of you that want to come see it to do so that friday night.I would also encourage any of you with costumes to bring them.if the appearance thing works out there may be up to a dozen troopers and such and so no-one will be out of place dressed up.

    If there are a few of you that would like to get together with the nashville FF and possibly the memphis FF then post it here.We are working on getting something together at "Jillians" a restaurant across the hall in the mall.The opry mills mall is pretty big and the imax is located at one end.There is a big open area and a few restaurants.jillians has an arcade and is pretty big as well.perhaps we could all meet there before/after the movie.


    ill keep updating you guys as to whats happening.

    talk to ya later

    Chattanooga fans--Obivolkenobi and I-- plan to go to Nashville IMAX November 13, time to be decided once the viewing schedule is out.

    I'll be checking back here later in case anyone wants to go see it then.

    Well, me and Dave are probably going to make it to the show for November 1st in Nashville. I'm not sure what time exactly, but we will be there if everything pans out.

    If not, the thing comes out less than two weeks later on DVD, so no big loss.

    It appears at this time the services of the 501st and fans in middle tenn are not needed at the opry mills imax theater in nashville.
    we have been unable to secure any fan activities at the nashville location.

    I think I just read at ArtoosNews.com that at least some of the theaters will have it for two months.

    I also want one of the BanthaTracks

    the stormtrooper costumes are awesome and the mara jade and fett costumes look perfect.there will be alot of other characters as well.if you guys have a website up send a link over to "jeditoren" he's putting together a sheet we'll be handing out that has websites for the fans to go to.theres a chance that the news/newspaper will be there also.

    It's official now that I will be there on Friday. Does anyone know what time all this 501st and various other activities will occur? Let me know.

    Oh and btw, given all this I will bring my ANH vader lightsaber replica (an MPP replica complete with authentic Exactra calculator bubble strip and corrected sidebars) with me. The grips still aren't pemenantly on it pending the new discovery on how many grips the saber had, but oh well it's still friggin' sweet! :)

    See you guys Friday!

    hey there,
    imax update,

    we will indeed be having a 501st/rebel legion/fanforce appearance at the imax friday night.we will be there in costume from around 6:00 or so up until 10:00 or so.
    we will have many costumers there from the 501st as well as the rebel legion.we will be handing out the bantha tracks to the patrons as they enter the theater area.we may have some additional items to give away so any of you that make it over be sure to find us and let us know who you are.I believe we are getting some badges made for our volunteers so look for those.
    opry mills is a pretty cool mall,very clean.theres alot of restaurants and a nice sized food court.they are expecting a sellout though there are tickets available still.
    here are the showtimes;
    12:40
    3:30
    7:00
    9:30

    im not sure if they will give out the bantha tracks to the earlier show or not.if theres enough they may ,if not we may wait until the later shows when we'll be there.

    be sure to bring your cameras!

    see ya

    It was great meeting all you guys too! I had a lot of fun in Nashville and I enjoyed the movie very much albeit the size was simply overwhelming. My only real gripe was with some of the editing decisions and the fact that at my showing at least, one person had not seen the full movie even once and the IMAX version was his first time seeing it. To me, when Chancellor Palpatine makes his suggestion that "an old friend, like Master Kenobi" watch over the senator it made the whole film, but that was gone along with much of the love story and I feel bad that even one person may never know that.

    Oh well, it was still a fantastic visual experience and I give big Kudos to LFL and DMR, and yes I want to see that tape or DVD ASAP! You guys really made my day! :D
