BTW, I have room for 3 (very comfortably) or 4 (back seat will be snug but not uncomfortably so).

I keep confusing my intentions with my abilities.

Fun night tonight. Almost like our own little Riff Trax on A New Hope.

And a big hat tip to @theblackangus for getting my turntable running again. Vinyl Sunday returns tomorrow!

I love my iPhone, but it will never replace my turntable.

Yeah that was super fun, thanks so much for having us up!

Great to meet all the folks I haven't gotten to meet before.

And also great to have a new nickname for zltful - The Digital Horder.=)

Thanks for hosting Thrillcat, had a great time. I will need to get that version of A New Hope, Han is the only one that shoots!

Good call Jeahrens, you weren't on for Empire but you are now. That showing is now officially full.

So after a sneak peak at Thrillcat's, do we want the Blu Ray or the "Revisited" version of Empire? i'm kind of leaning towards the latter since we've all seen the Blu Ray a BILLION times.

I'm down for the tweaked version, based on the quick scene we watched of the Hoth battle, I'd like to see more.

It will be fun to spot the differences because many are pretty subtle. Thrillcat you've got a nice boom-box hidden in that house. I'm glad you showed John Wick 2 to demo your setup since SW isn't exactly cutting edge.

If the group is interested in a late show after Empire let me know. Would be willing to watch anything - Wonder Woman, Oblivion, Lone Survivor, Deepwater Horizon, 13 hours, etc. Can start Empire at 6:30 or so.

Heh depends on how early we ACTUALLY get started. Didn't make it home from Star Wars until ~midnight. If we get started early enough Deep Water Horizon is a good and surprisingly short one. That might be doable.

We screened the Adywan version at ThrillCat's. Everyone seemed to like the changes. It's very well done. But at least the Blu of Empire has the least amount of Lucas-ification.

Thanks for hosting Empire David. Was great to finally get to experience your theater. I now understand why Johnathan says your theater is the best he's ever been in. Great to meet everyone. Look forward to Return!!

Where's everyone going to see Last Jedi? Wanna do a group viewing?

I've been going to the IMAX for the last two years for the Star Wars openings but the video experience is horrible...IMO. Cousin always wanted to go to the IMAX but got him talked into the Cinemark here in Altoona this year.

I'm not a huge IMAX fan myself. Maybe Cinemark.

Thanks again David. As always, a great theater experience.

I would be in for The Last Jedi. My wife has no desire to watch it so whatever works for me.

I keep confusing my intentions with my abilities.
