‘Star Wars’ Fans Line Up at Wrong Theater
LOS ANGELES ( – One group of loyal “Star Wars” fans are hoping The Force is on their side.
Followers of George Lucas’ sci-fi saga began lining up outside Hollywood’s Grauman’s Chinese Theater on Saturday, April 2, despite the fact that “Episode III — Revenge of the Sith” won’t be showing there, reports the AP.
Instead, 20th Century Fox has booked the ArcLight theater, which is about a mile east of Grauman’s for the historic showing of the final installment of the beloved series.
The fans haven’t made a mistake, though. They insist that “Episode III” should screen at the Chinese since the first film, 1977’s “A New Hope,” made its premiere there. In addition, rumors in 1999 and 2002 that previous “Star Wars” films weren’t showing at the historic Hollywood landmark were unfounded.
“We’ve heard all this before,” says fan Sarah Sprague. “This is still the epicenter for ‘Star Wars’ fans. For the big iconic pictures of the 1970s, people lining up were here.”
Moreover, fans feel that the ArcLight’s practice of allowing moviegoers to purchase tickets and reserve specific seats online negates the true dedication of lining up. Although Fox and ArcLight haven’t finalized their deal, the studio insists they won’t be screening the film at the Chinese.
In January, Seattle resident Jeff Twieden became the first person in the country to begin the final “Star Wars” vigil on the sidewalk outside his local theater in preparation for the Thursday, May 19th worldwide release.
The highly anticipated “Episode III” is set two years into the Clone Wars, when Chancellor Palpatine, with the help of his clone army and Sith Warriors, prepares to rid the galaxy of the Jedis in order to declare himself Emperor of the Galactic Empire. Anakin Skywalker will also make his final descent into evil, becoming the heavy-breathing, helmeted Darth Vader.
