    OK, so I'm the newbie but I'll ask since I hadn't seen it brought up yet. Maybe its too early for this but here I go anyway. ;)

    Is the group planning on going to see ROTS together?

    Reason I ask is because I'd joined R2-Detroit just after AoTC came out and that group did do a big group outing (in costume or regular) at a Star theatre that was sorta central to everyone.

    Granted, my knowledge of the side of the state where I'm moving is currently limited to two theatres (Fremont's and the Star in Alpine) so I don't know what's close or practical for everyone...

    ...but I wanted to toss the question out anyway to see if this group does things like that. So do ya? :)

    Yeah we kind of brought it up before, but I think we should get this topic rolling. I can't wait till it comes out.
    We should see it as a group, probably at the Celebration Cinema. When I saw the AOTC at the Imax, their was a group of 20 or more in costume in line, and heard if you wore a costume they had discounts for pop, popcorn, and stuff.

    Oh yeah, Welcome JediCath

    I do remember talking about it at one of the meetings, but not sure if we decided on where and when we are going to do it. I thought there was going to be some fund raising at the Imax theater when Rots comes out...But yeah I'll be there, just tell me when and where...

    *waves*

    Wherebouts is the IMAX besides saying "in Grand Rapids"? Hehe. I know there is one, but like I say, I am still learning the area (from yet afar!).

    I have a makeshift Jedi costume that I want to attend in. :) Actually, it makes me look more like a Sith since its all black, but hey! All fun anyway.

    So far it looks like we are not going to be getting ROTS on the IMAX... though that may change.

    When we get a little closer to the release day I will post a little more on what the 501st is planning. Everyone will be welcome and it will be a blast.

    Our big event is going to happen the Saturday after the Movies release. So on the 21st. A few of us will be there opening night in our new Clone Commander getup. Keep an eye out for us.

    TX-338 Out!

    RotS comes out smack in the middle of exam week! My heart leaps with joy. But I do not have any exams on the opening day, at least, so I can see it at midnight with the Jedi Knights of Cleveland. :D

    At least my best friend promised we'd go together, in costume, once we got back home.

    I would like to go to a midnight showing but I don't have anyone to go with so if anyone is organizing something for this, I'm definitely interested. :)

    Unfortunately, no costume, not even a Star Wars-themed shirt... the horror!

    Hello Grand Admiral Rapids,

    R2-Detroit is having a big bash at the Emagine theatre in Novi. The Emagine is showing ROTS in Digital, and if you didn't know the digital version will be different than the film version. We have permission from the theatre to to costume for opening night, so there are no worries in that respect.

    The event will start at 12:00 pm on Wednesday in the parking lot of the Emagine theatre (we'll be hard to miss). We only ask that if you are coming (in or out of costume), bring something edible, we will have a grill going!

    We have also invited the Ann Arbor FanForce, A2-F2, to join us. The more the merrier!

    From GR, it is roughly a 2 1/4 hour drive to Novi, for those interested.

    As a reminder, because this is one of the few digital theatres, you may want to make sure you have a ticket before making the journey.

    Hope to see you there!

    ~Scooby

    I just bought 10 tickets for the 12:15 am showing at Celebration Cinema on May 19. Me and my friends are planning to show up with Star Wars costumes. It should be a most excellent time.
