    Slightly NEW AND UPDATED

    Back where it all began...

    SW EP1 THE PHANTOM MENACE in 3D
    Regal Theatres - Transit Road
    Friday - Sunday February 10, 11 and 12

    The theater is definitely excited about having us appear in costume to celebrate the reissue.
    Regal has decided that they want NO COLLECTIONS for ANY CHARITIES, as is their current policy.
    As of FRIDAY 2/3, TPM in 3D will NOT be in Imax at Transit Regal.
    There WILL BE a Thursday MIDNIGHT advance screening, but attendance is likely to be very light, and we are not expected to be there, unless anyone really wants to.
    There will probably be multiple "prints," so showtimes may be scattered by 30-45 mins apart. They don't know how many screens it will be on, so they don't have a run schedule yet.
    The early matinee(s) on Friday are likewise expected to be VERY SPARSELY ATTENDED, so if we want to aim for a mid-to-late afternoon start for our appearance, they are good with that.
    We will have tables to display literature, give-aways and pose for photos with the new backdrop premiered at the Warriors game.
    Please start thinking about additional activities we can do, and your availability.
    So, we can probably look at:
    Friday - 4:00-5:00 PM start to last show.
    Saturday - All day, various shifts as needed (stay as much or as little as you want/need).
    Sunday - Matinee to maybe 6:00 - 7:00 PM.

    On Friday, we should plan to be in costume by 3:30 for the 2nd round beginning at 4:10.
    Saturday 1st show is at 12:40, be ready to go by noon-12:15 latest.
    Sunday, 1st show is 12:20, so be ready by 11:30 AM.

    I'm in as Vader. Definitely Friday night after 6. Saturday times will be updated.

    We do have a ton of suckers and could incorporate a game to it. Will have the death star bean bag game as well.

    Not sure how much room we will have in a crowded theater lobby. Either way it will be a good time and a chance to recruit some noobs.

    I'm available Friday after 6 (I could likely be at the venue and in costume by 7) and should be free Saturday and Sunday as needed. Probably various Lukes (ROTJ, Pilot, etc.)

    Would it be possible to get the Death Star bean bag toss built in time? It's something we've been toying with for years, and by accounts doesn't sound terribly hard to make. Maybe the deadline can be a good motivation?

    I can do either Friday or Saturday night. Just let me know which one you prefer and if you'd like pilot or Jedi.

    Official retraction

    We may have the game. Am I motivated to make it? Yes. Is it a priority. Not as much.

    I will need to ponder this. If I do decide, I might just man the table; not sure if I want to dawn the armor.

    I'm in, probably for Saturday. If there is room (even just a corner..), would love to bring Artoo. Jedi as usual.

    Edit: Sunday would work better for me.

    I'm not available on Friday, but I can probably do both Saturday and Sunday. I can do Guard and Ktulu, as I normally bring both.

    To update:

    I may not be able to make it first thing in the morning on Saturday, depending on the scheduling of some extra work I've been doing to help my mom out. Either way I should be able to be there by mid-afternoon at the latest.

    Friday I'll likely do ROTJ Luke, and Saturday I'll do my Jedi.

    Sunday, I'll figure it out. Maybe my pilot.

    I will in fact be able to attend this. I should be able to do Friday night around the same time as Chris (6pmish) We shall see how how I feel after Friday before I commit to do the whole weekend.

    As for my costume or costumes....I will probably be either Snowy or Greivous. I probably will have my pilot as well just in case.
