    Here is the address and contact info for the Spangenberg Theatre in Palo Alto

    Nah. I'll be studying up a storm. Sounds great, though. Those 501st guys are wonderful.

    $5/movie isn't bad any time, let alone for a big event with all the atmosphere and stuff. I wish I could go.

    I'd love to go too. I'm afraid my weekend's already set though.

    Thanks for letting us know. If they ever did another one and gave advance warning, we could make it an official event.
