    I wonder if there will be any star wars movie marathon in singapore... I hope cineleisure can arrange this marathon. Imagine, watching 6 episodes in 1 go, for over 14 hrs non stop!

    I would recommend screening the Original Trilogy only... Enough goodness that won't result in too much of a good thing..

    For the cinema to get the rights from Lucasfilm to screen the OT might be tricky

    No need to be in cinema... Can do it during a FFSG chalet gathering...

    Yea that's possible. Regarding the chalet, I am interested in organizing it, but I'd like some feedback first on when would be a convenient time for most.

    Charlet would be cool.. My suggestion would be to make this Screening as awesome as possible. As in charlets the TV and the speakers arent that good, I suggest we bring our own surround speakers.. and mayeb a projector or a big TV - I'm sure we can arrange out something, those who have vehicles could help out, those who can cook make some good snacks, put sleeping bags on the whole floor so that it is comfortable even on the floor, bring additional cushions and YEA! last and not least a dvd player and the dvds ! :) some vodka would be awesome

    Be creative a Jedi, we must!
    Cheers!

    Wow our own TV and sound system? Sounds like a tall order. For one, who can provide all these?

    As for a chalet, we have to start putting together possible dates now because it takes time to book. I'm afraid that the holiday season might be fully booked already, but you never know.

    :)

    If we are really keen to fork out a little money for a cinema experience, I'd recommend the auditorium of the new Sengkang CC... I was present when they screened EP1 and EP2 as part of their Youth Executive Committee activities... Pretty good!

    But I would still recommend the screening of only the Original Trilogy (Special Edition) to avoid an overkill..

    Gosh, reading the chalet post makes me feel guilty!
    I'm having my birthday celebration at aranda chalets at NTUC downtown east, with a projector and my own surround speakers. AND the theme is Star Wars (deco and such), the ONLY problem is my mum wouldn't let me invite a whole bunch of people I've never met...

    Hmm, if 16 is old then I must be a grand-dad. But it is kinda true I feel old.

    :(

    Oooh...ancient artifacts, I like te sound of that :p (think Indiana Jones)
    I'm game for a Star Wars Movie Marathon...but I would prefer if it included the prequels, though it would mean at least 8 more hours. Wow, martianlightsaber, your parents are so cool!

    Kim>> "aren't past 21", so does that qualify me to make myself sound like an ancient artifact?

    But seriously, no one's old here. Please when you get to 800 years old, then old you become.

    Crovus: erm...well...you can be prehistoric.

    ;)

    chalet during june is kinda impossible, so do we want to set it in nov/dec? or before august since JaZzYjaZZ is going off?

    14+ hours of star wars...now wouldn't that be heavenly. hm, so who's going to get a pirated vcd/dvd of ep III?

    I am so tempted to say that we should wait till AFTER the original DVD gets released... 'cos the quality will be much better... when is it being released??

    I just love the bonus bits in the DVDs! :)

    Hmm......if SSC got their way, there is some kind of OT or Prequel Movie Marathon everyday during the run of the exhibition in the theater or even OmniMax on selected dates. [face_thinking]

    But lookie lookie at the state of the Contract rite now (Update from Sat: Contract still not back from Japan) and what happened during the LOTR one (FOTR EE & TTT EE screenings were not approved), the possibility is like so low. :(

    Personally, I prefer our own Movie Marathon as can lie down with pillows, blanky, food etc etc and can pause for toilet & snack breaks! :p Between the LOTR Trilogy Marathon I had attended, I found the one at the Starlight Cinema in Malaysia most comfortable as I was either on my belly or back most of the time! ;)
