Please (briefly) describe the event and your organization's role:: My blog, CCD, is sponsoring a all day viewing marathon of all six Star Wars movies on 7/3/2011. We will be projecting the films on a 85 inch screen as well as using the rest of the TV's in the bar to show all six films back to back. Start time is at 1PM for The Phantom Menace, and will continue until the end of Jedi!!! It's gonna be epic.

The event is free, and there is a $35 bracelet that entitles you to all the draft beer you would like during the six films. Also, there will be other drink specials, artists selling Star Wars themed art, and vendors selling vintage Star Wars memorabilia.

How did you hear about us? : I found you guys via Twitter. The 501st Legion is also sending some people to appear, so your involvement will help balance the force in the room that day... hope to see you guys there!

Just a reminder per the Charter, members may not drink alcoholic beverages while in costume. Likewise, squires may not drink alcoholic beverages while performing the duties given to them.

Do they have permission from LFL to host this event?
It's my understanding that all 6 movies are in moratorium and are not allowed to be shown in a public setting - even for charity.

I don't think that's our problem, whether they have permission or not. I just can't see how it's our place to say.

How likely is it that you'd travel for this event? No interest = No event.

When a request like this comes in through the 501st, Mary Franklin has asked me to run them by her because organizations need permission to show the films. If they don't have permission, the 501st has been asked to decline the request even if there's interest from members to attend it.
I had assumed the RL would be operating under the same procedures.

You must do what you feel is right...

No interest still = No event

This invite came down the pike, so RL Command viewed this, and passed it down, if Donna sented it, then it is approved, if I did not get it then it wasn't. This my position on event requests from the public.

I understand Tim, and I never had a problem with the event. I just can't get down there for it.

Epilogue: Click to see thread

The event got shut down. I guess someone contacted Lucasfilm and they sent a C&D. Rolling Eyes
