Rating the Star Wars Lines

DSCN2228.JPGIt’s become as cliched as the “slow clap” that sci-fi events attract lines outside of movie theaters. Sitting on the precipice of the final Star Wars chapter, attention and derision for fan lines have been swirling for weeks (nearly months) in LA. Austin, being more relaxed / hip / unhip / whatever than LA, has only gotten in the Episode III line game within the last week.

Coming home from the gym last night, I noticed a line had formed outside the Alamo South Lamar and decided to do a quick evaluation of the Austin Star Wars lines. The group outside of Alamo is organized by the Star Wars Austin Fan Force, which only comprised 6 die hards as of 8:30 this morning. But what they lacked in humans they compensated for in stuff, including a large R2-D2 thingy and multimedia projection.

I swung by the “competing” camp-out at Barton Creek Cinemas, but didn’t have the heart to wake them up for a more detailed comparison. I’ll swing by over lunch and see how they stack up with the group at Alamo.
