I see submitter has stormtrooper style accuracy when to comes to picking the "spiffy" tag.

If there's a bright center to the universe, you're in the city that it's farthest from.

It is quite the hive of scum and villainy.

Chicago, gateway to Coruscant.

You would prefer another target? Then name the city!

Ice Planet Hoth would have been better.

Woohoo!

Now I can see it on a long weekend sometime rather than on the never occasions that I bother to wander over to one of the coasts.
 
2014-06-24 10:58:00 PM  
Why not? There was a great Blues Brothers museum on Hoth.

Dexter Jettster will feel right at home.

Only about 80 miles from me! Less than a tank of gas round trip! Could totally pull this trip off in less than twelve parsecs.

From Chicago, excited as hell, but even I had to do a doubt take at that news.

//Chicago? Really?

I always loved the Hard Rock Cafe on Ord Mantell.

Bad move. I hate Chicago's beach. The sand is coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere.

The new Mrs. Lucas is from Chicago and made her fortune in the financial sector there. She's got tons of contacts and San Francisco has been rather disenchanted with Lucas recently, sad to say.

At least they'll be able to serve some decent pizza.

Exactly. Which is why it is going to Chicago!

But seriously, good for them. I like Chicago.

Wait until the construction starts... all the inspectors work for Jabba....


"The museum seems to be off-schedule for the completion date."
"There've been problems with construction materials shortages and work stoppages..."
"You can tell the Mayor about it when he arrives."
"The (ulp!) MAYOR?!?!?! Well, then, ..... we shall re-DOUBLE our efforts!"
"See that you do. Or I can find... other ways, to "motivate" them.

We don't know who the mayor is going to be. It's probably not going to be Rahm with his 25% approval rating. The unions don't like Rahm, and he's been billing his political fundraising travel to the City (on top of the whole misclassified murders fiasco). I would not be entirely surprised if he were gone by the time this starts.

It' going to be just down the street from the darth mall, easy parking.

This is not the Museum you are looking for.

The Emperor will come to oversee the construction and he is not as forgiving as I am.

Well, Mr. Capone certainly did.  Imagine him with a lightsaber instead of a baseball bat.
 
2014-06-24 11:46:30 PM  
Sure, why not?  Chicago is the one historical film city that doesn't have it's own museum yet, and if a Lucas collection is the germ of finally having a proper museum of film here, I'm fine with it.  I'll just make the suggestion that it should eventually have a section about Chicago as the center of educational films.
 
2014-06-24 11:51:33 PM  
Maybe they can use the light sabers to eliminate the guns.
 
2014-06-24 11:55:58 PM  
Lucas knows people in the local government.

Where are the stolen plans for the museum.
 
2014-06-25 12:04:32 AM  
No doubt politicians in San Francisco will be chastised for rightfully vetoing Lucas' plan to build the museum in the Presidio. And Lucas will go around claiming that the City refused to work with him when they did in fact offer him land along the Embarcadero.
 
2014-06-25 12:10:37 AM  
Yavin moon would have been a better location.
 
2014-06-25 12:20:21 AM  
The real Fail here is that the parks dept is going to fight it because they don't like the planned location.... Because it will ruin the current beauty and serenity that is a soldier field parking lot.
 
2014-06-25 12:23:59 AM  
Sweet. I'm moving there at the end of September.

The site Lucas wanted there went to the Packers instead; they're wanting to move to a warmer stadium

Unless they offered him better than the 14 acres Chicago has, they weren't going to get far.

She went to my high school. Think I may just have to call up the alumni office once I come up with some reason why I need her number. Oh hell they'd likely give it to me just because I want to meet George.
