Went to see the animated movie Star Wars: The Clone Wars at a drive in theater last night. The film was okay, better than I expected. The concession stand was selling generic LED light swords (light sabers). They were kid of cool. No wonder they sold quite a few. Watching the kids playing with them was fun. They quickly figured out that you could stick two together and have a double blade lightsaber like Darth Maul’s. The swords switched colors at the push of a button. at one point just as it was getting dark about 8 orÂ 9 kids were up front under the screen having an all out lightsaber battle. It looked pretty cool. I was wishing I had my camera with me.
We were ill prepared for the temperature drop after the sun went down. Boy did it get cold. The drive in was having a double feature the second show was Batman: The Dark Knight, which we had to watch from inside the card because of the cold.
