Star Wars at Fort Worth Museum of Science and History

From: Bob M.
Sent on: Wednesday, June 20, 2007 11:54 PM
Knowing that there are many Science Fiction fans
within the group--I thought this might be of
interest.  (?)
This seems like a pretty neat event!  I've
been hearing a lot about it on the radio for
the last couple of days. 
Here is an overview of the main features of
the Star Wars exhibit.
I think the Omni Presentation might be good to
see "while one's there".
>> Omni Theater, an IMAX dome, to show Special
>> Effects film to complement Star Wars:  Where
>> Science Meets Imagination, a special exhibit
>> opening June 9
The planetarium show is probably good too--but that
might be too much.  (?)
Here is ticket information. 
Here are a couple of "hot tips" from the site.  They are
selling tickets for specific times--to deal in a less
crowded way with the interest they anticipate in this
>> Plan your day at the Museum around your chosen
>> Star Wars ticket time
>> Mondays & Tuesdays are the least crowded days
>> Most visitors spend about an hour in the Star
>> Wars exhibit
Tonight I was listing to 90.1 FM.  They were playing parts
of something pretty neat.
>> An expanded radio dramatization of the original
>> Star Wars trilogy was produced in 1981, 1983, and
>> 1996. The first two radio series, based on A New
>> Hope and The Empire Strikes Back, were produced
>> and broadcast by National Public Radio as part of
>> NPR Playhouse.  A dramatization of Return of the
>> Jedi was produced by most of the same team and
>> also broadcast on NPR.
>> The radio serials were made with the full
>> co-operation of George Lucas, who for one dollar
>> each sold the rights to KUSC-FM, the public radio
>> affiliate at his alma mater, the University of
>> Southern California.  Lucas also allowed the use
>> of original sound effects and music from the
>> films.
I've read good things about this--and enjoyed what I listened
to tonight.  I'm probably going to keep my eyes open for this.
It might make a long car trip pass much more quickly.
OK.  I'll stop.
"May the force be with you."  :)
