    Hey Sithman!

    EPII would most definitely be on one of those huge screens. If they showed Cast Away there, they'd have to show SW on one of those screens.

    RHammer86,

    I went to Fremd! I graduated about ## years ago (I ain't sayin' how long ago!)

    BTW, I vote for:
    ***********************
    AMC Barrington 30
    ***********************
    for EPII. Especially if they use the digital projection screen!

    K, that's 2 votes for AMC Barrington 30 for Episode II!

    P.S. Jedilori, RHammer lives right down the street from me. :-D

    Well depending on when/where, I vote for the AMC as well. Not that Cantera thing, the one in south Barrington. My friends and I go there a lot for movies and I could definitely see a line being quite successful there...

    plus there's a Steak 'n Shake down the road...

    mmmm.... milkshakes...

    Heh, yup. BTW, since i'm only a frosh in high school, i won't be able to get out of school for weeks before to line up... although maybe we can all make a mad dash out there the morning tickets go on sale. I read about people doing that at the AMC for Episode 1 two years ago. (by "doing that" i mean not lining up and just going out at 8 AM the morning they went on sale and waiting for a couple hours to get them). Er, how does THAT sound?

    Thom from Mt. Prospect here, right close to the Arlington Heights border... :) First saw TPM at AMC 30 SB, like so many others, and would go to see Ep2 there as well....

    If anyone wants to visit me, I work Saturday nights (most of them, at least) at the Barnes & Noble in Schaumburg, slinging lattes in the cafe. Maybe I'll change my nametag to Wuher and see if anyone notices. ::chuckle:: Speaking of Fremd HS, they just had a bookfair at that B&N last Saturday, to support their Writers' Week... but I digress. :D
