    I still need to call security, but I doubt we will get it.
    EDIT: If the mall says no, I think we will postpone the east side stroll. I looked at the weather forcast, and it will be a little too warm for my tastes. I'll keep ya updated.

    I went ahead and made a press release for the premiere. I've already heard back from Channel 25 wanting to know if we can give interviews for thier 10pm news.

    The force is with local organizations for final movie in the ?Star Wars? saga?

    Evansville, IN, May 16 ? ?The force is strong with this one.? May 19th marks the final installment in the Star Wars saga, and local fans are using the opportunity to the fullest. Stormtroopers and light sabers will be en mass for two local chapters of World wide fan organizations. Members of the ?E?ville Jedi? FanForce will be at the first showing of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith at midnight on the 19th at Showplace Cinemas East 18. With them will be multiple costumed members of the ?Fighting 501st? Stormtrooper legion in professional Star Wars costumes including Stormtroopers, Royal Guards, Imperial Officers, and TIE Pilots.

    The biggest fans in Evansville are planning to show up at 9pm Wednesday for the Midnight Thursday screening of the movie at Showplace East, which has become the official theatre for both the Fan Club and 501st Legion. Costumed members are planning to return to the theatre Saturday afternoon to troop with families and fans seeing the movie that weekend.

    Showplace East is the place to be for Fans and Media alike!

    The Evansville Star Wars fan club was founded in Evansville in 2002, shortly before the release of Star Wars Episode II. Since then, it has grown to over 20 members from around the tri-state. Pipe fitters to Preachers, lawyers, and students of all ages have joined this group bound by their love for Star Wars. The ?E?ville Jedi? hold monthly meetings, have their own Star Wars book club, attend movie screenings, and hold exclusive events. The FanForce organization started in 2001 under TheForce.net as a way for fans to meet outside the internet. It has over six thousand members world wide.

    The 501st Legion of Imperial Stormtroopers (aka the ?Fighting 501st?) is a Star Wars fan club that celebrates the magic of the Star Wars saga by appearing in the armor of the stormtroopers, the soldiers of the Galactic Empire and by getting involved in local communities. Members of the 501st Legion participate in blood drives, gather toys for charities, appear at Children?s hospitals, volunteer for Lucasfilm-sponsored events, escort Star Wars celebrities at conventions, help with the release of Star Wars films and products, and generally hang about getting their pictures taken with kids of all ages.

    I'm having the same luck with mall security as Joe has had... none. We will do something else later in the summer.

    Sorry TC517, I won't be available to "Troop" tomorrow night. I am off Friday night though if you want to show up for that night's movie crowd. I figure I'll still be recovering from the Midnight release on Thursday though. :)
