    They didn't allow cameras during the Lord of the Rings exhibit that was there last year so I doubt they will allow it for this unfortunately. Still sounds cool though.

    Actually they allowed pics and vid.

    Although this was a private showing (opening gala deal) an employee told me that he was told that Lucasfilm was allowing pics to help promote the exhibit, unlike what happened at the LOTR exhibit.

    Hopefully they'll allow pics once it opens to the public - tomorrow I think. It would be shame if they didn't.

    Cool. That would be awesome if they allowed cameras. That was my only disappointment with the LOTR exhibit. Must get tickets.

    Ah, thank you.

    Los Angeles = good (I'm just south of LA)

    18 months to wait = not so good.

    The Boston show does end in April, but I'm note sure the exact date. The site has SW events scheduled thru the 30th so you could assume it goes thru then. The museum phone is...

    the other cities listed are...

    COSI, Columbus, OH, June - August 2006

    Re: Props and Models and Costumes, oh my!

    Hey folks,

    The exhibit is currently in Philadelphia PA at The Franklin... formerly the Franklin Institute Science Musuem.

    I happen to work there and would be happy to take some photos if anyone is looking for something specific. Stay tuned for the Training Remote color matching I'll be working on as I build up a kit.

    If you're planning on coming get your tickets in advance... the weekends have been insanely busy.

    Thanks to the R2 builders, 501st and the Rebel Legion for making the opening something truly special!
