Puerto Rico loves Star Wars III

Puerto Rico loves Star Wars IIIHopefully, I've re-ignited your passion for Star Wars. Did you know that Star Wars is the third-highest grossing film series? With overall box office revenues of approximately $4.3 billion, it trails James Bond (21 films) and the leader Harry Potter.

If you're now itching to experience some new Star Wars thrills, the best you're going to be able to find is happening next Monday in the San Patricio Mall. Organized by Néstro Pérez, President of the Puerto Rico Star Wars Fan Club, this Sunday at 5:30 p.m. in the Food Court of San Patricio Mall Pérez will present the "Star Wars Fans Saga Explosion."

The event will feature a screening of "Episode i: The Phantom Menace" on a large screen (12' by 9', to be exact). The screening celebrates WAPA TV transmitting the entire Star Wars film series. Starting on July 14th, and continuing on the next five Mondays, WAPA will broadcast all six films. HBO is the only other television channel to have also transmitted the six movies consecutively.

In addition to watching the move, Pérez invites everyone who likes to do that sort of thing, to come dressed as your favorite Star Wars character. So whether the movie is enjoyable or not, it should be a real blast to see all of the Star Wars geeks parade into San Patricio Plaza. Admission to the event is free, and Pérez encourages everyone to bring their cameras so they can take pictures with their favorite characters. I'll see you there and I'm bringing my camera. I'm hoping some gorgeous Puerto Rican beauty comes as Princess Leia Organa in that hot bikini getup from "Episode 6: The Return of the Jedi." Hey an old pervert can dream, can't he?
