A second theater has been added for the special May 19 screening of “The Empire Strikes Back” at the ArcLight Hollywood — and it will have a simulcast of the Q&A with Harrison Ford from the neighboring theater.
Tickets have just gone on sale for the second theater and cost $75. Seats in the main theater went for $175 and $100 and sold out instantly — those prices sounded plenty reasonable to “Star Wars” fans considering the good cause and the fact that Ford rarely does any events linked to the universe of Jedi knights, droids and wookiees.
The event will benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and is part of yearlong charity initiative called “The Empire Gives Back,” a campaign by Lucasfilm to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the most celebrated “Star Wars” sequel.
I’ll be the one handling the Q&A on stage and if any of you have some suggested questions you’d like to me to ask, post them in the comments section.
