HOLLYWOOD, CA ? The Star Wars fans of LiningUp.Net have been waiting for a week at a theater that doesn?t even have the next Star Wars film booked right now?but they?re not worried one bit.
Just as Luke Skywalker remained hopeful that there was still good in the heart of his father Darth Vader, so also do fans remain hopeful that Grauman?s Chinese Theater will book Star Wars: Episode III ? Revenge of the Sith, scheduled for release on May 19. After all, Grauman?s is where many of film history?s great premieres have taken place, including the original Star Wars in 1977, and that legacy would only continue with the release of Episode III at the theater. It?s this world-renowned Hollywood landmark that has served as home to the previous prequel lines, and the area has always embraced the group?s efforts wholeheartedly, offering support and encouragement as they continue their seven-week wait for the film.
Confident that the Chinese will book the final Star Wars film, LiningUp.Net pushes forward with its line and celebrates the end of an incredibly successful first week. Line membership has already exceeded 100, and charity donations for the line?s fundraising drive supporting the Starlight-Starbright Children?s Foundation top $8,000. This puts LiningUp.Net well on their way toward their $50,000 goal for the charity, which helps to brighten the lives and dreams of seriously ill children and their families through their various activities, including Starlight Sites, Fun Centers, PC Pals, Hospital Happenings and Starbright World.
Using a sign-in and sign-out system, members of LiningUp.Net?s line at the Chinese can accrue hours at their convenience and then leave the line to keep up with jobs, school and other life priorities. Reflecting the wide-ranging impact of the Star Wars phenomenon, line members include business professionals, students, and homemakers, with some members traveling from as far away as Europe, Taiwan, and Australia.
It is not too late to join LiningUp.Net in line at Grauman's Chinese Theatre, or to support their fundraising efforts.
