Star Wars fans get marathon screening

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- May the Force be with you ... and with you ... and with you.

An intrepid crowd of "Star Wars" fans is in the Los Angeles Convention Center, watching all six "Star Wars" movies in a 17-hour marathon.

The free showing began this morning, and is expected to end early tomorrow.

The event kicked off a celebration of the 30th anniversary of the release of the original film.

Several thousand people, some in costumes, showed up for the screening, which includes brief intermissions.

Lucasfilm Limited supplied the digital prints for the movies and is involved in "Star Wars Celebration Four" at the the Convention Center. That event is to include costume contests, exhibitions of movie props, autograph opportunities and even a Storm Trooper "Olympics."
