May The Force Be With You... Not

Some readers know about Umlaut's "Be Careful What You Wish For.." history with Star Wars.. Perhaps someday I will relive the good, the bad, and the ugly in this space. Maybe... We'll see.

Until then: I was stunned to learn that the old Coronet Theater in S.F. is closing.. After 56 years it'll be demolished. Twas the first theater that screened Star Wars to the public in 1977.. and was the site of debut screenings for every episode since. In a sense it has witnessed the rise and fall of that once relevant franchise.

Coronet Theatre To Be Demolished

A sad day for S.F. movie history... but perhaps an omen for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode III (cue ominous music).

Part of Umlaut still cares about this shit... Then I see something like this and realize "Star Wars Sucks" and I throw on the new Rammstein CD.. I don't understand a lick of what they're saying, but you can never go wrong with pounding German Industrial / Metal.
