    Went to the 30th anniversary of Return of the Jedi at the Egyptian 


    the Egyptian was actually built before Grauman’s Chinese in 1922 and it was such a hit they decided to build the Chinese a few blocks away in 1927


    Geoff Boucher formerly of Hero Complex now works at Entertainment Weekly, and one thing he’s great at is doing special movie deals


    yesterday was Star Wars Day so he arranged for a sweet 35mm print to be shown at the Egyptian

    we sat next to Princess Leia in the balcony


    she introduced us to this nice Jedi jentleman


    speaking of Jedi’s, because its Hollywood, Luke Skywalker showed up and told us everything

    the ceiling of the Egyptian reminded me of Jabba the Hut’s trap door, but you know, on a ceiling


    we had a great time. thanks Chris for getting the tix and Geoff Boucher for doing these cool film deals.

    oh and George Lucas for changing things up a little after American Graffiti.
