An Evening with C3P0 . . .

Christopher and I went to Conseco Fieldhouse Saturday night to listen to the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and "Star Wars in Concert"! It was fantastic!

Anthony Daniels, who played C3PO in all 6 movies, was there to narrate the movie clips, original artwork and storyboards, and outtakes from the movies.

The music was incredible and a highlight was a laser light show!

After the concert, Christopher and I wandered the halls of Conseco where many of the original costumes and props were displayed. We saw the original Darth Vader costume, Chewbacca's hairy outfit (OMG that guy was big!), a mockup of the Death Star, and a likeness of Yoda.

Being at the Concert brought back lots of happy memories including watching the movies at the cottages. Also, when Christopher was young, we went to Florida on vacation. It rained for a few days of the trip and on one of the days, Christopher, his friend Brian, and I spent the entire afternoon at the Pleasure Island movie theatre watching the Star Wars Trilogy, eating popcorn and drinking soda.

It was a wonderful evening of music, reliving old memories and making new ones.
