LucasFilm Ltd. released the latest Star Wars movie Attack of the Clones (AOTC) in IMAX format across the country in November, 2002. The call to arms was requested by LucasFilm and starwars.com, asking the Fighting 501st Legion to perform Crowd Control at selected theaters around the USA. We did.
Naturally, the Southern California Garrison was no exception. To date, it looks like we had the largest turnout of costumed fans in the country, and that is according to www.starwars.com. The quote from the mother-of-all sites:
"Perhaps the biggest event took place at the Universal CityWalk IMAX Theatre in Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon where over 100 members of the 501st and Orange County Star Wars Society and others showed up in costume." Oh yeah!
A personal thanks to TR-095, Jeff Yankey for organizing the So. Cal. event. Further thanks to Kevin LaNeave, John Taylor, Simon, and Andrew Ten for submitting pics.
