yes, we are geeks

Tickets for Star Wars: Episode Three — Revenge of the Sith went on sale today at Loews Theatres, and the exciting news in D.C. is that it will be showing at the Uptown.

For those who aren’t familiar with it, the Uptown is an old-fashioned one-screen theater, complete with balcony, curved screen, and velvet curtain. Moviegoers get very grumpy when the best films don’t show there and The Interpretor had opened there recently, so we were a little concerned.

So as soon as I discovered SWIII would be showing there, Rudi snapped up tickets. We’ve been to blockbusters there early in their run before, so we will be better prepared this time — we’re planning a picnic to eat on the sidewalk lining Connecticut Avenue. Any Star Wars-appropriate fare we should consider? We’ll have some time, since the show starts at 7 p.m., and we’ll be heading there straight from work.

In addition to having tickets in hand for Star Wars, we also have our tickets for The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy for Friday. I haven’t read the Douglas Adams series, but Rudi really loves it and I’m game to go join the party Rudi’s organizing to see it at the Georgetown Loews. I’ll report back here over the weekend about how a non-fan feels about it.
