    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

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