It's Sunday!

Yesterday hubby and I went to the Star Wars Exhibit in Fort Worth abou ta 2 1/2 hour drive away. It was SO awesome! We saw it at the Science and natural history museum. And our ticket price included seeing the planetarium, which was alright, and an IMAX theater production of Order of the Pheonix.

I had never been to an IMAX theater like this one! I have been to the one that the screen is like 50 feet tall, just a regular BIIIIIIIG screen, but this one we saw last night was in a dome! The screen as all around/above you! So, the seats lean back, cause you have to actually look up to see the whole thing. It was so cool! It was odd, when people were talking, because looking at a normal screen you can just sort of shift your eyes, if something is happening from one side of the screen to the other, but here when something is happening at the other side of the screen, it's happening ALLL the way on the other side of the building, so you have to turn your whole head...I felt like I was watching a HUGE Tennis match! Imagine a dome, or a globe...HALF of the globe is the screen. We we were in the extreme middle so that meant looking directly to the left and directly to the right to see everything going on on the screen. It was awesome!

I am obviously impressed!!!!

The Star Wars exhibit was awesome too, LONG though. It was neat to see the different ways that science played in the making of the movie, and seeing the different costumes and models of the ships and stuff they actually used in the movies.

So, anyway, I will leave you with two cute pics:

Hope you have a beautiful Sunday.

Oh yeah, and no stitching, as I forgot to take some with me, I read a little bit of HP but mostly we just cruised with the music blaring, singing along and acting like two teenagers in love! Today though I hope to get to my stitching though!

Sounds like you had a wonderful time. I'll bet the Star Wars exhibit was fun to see. As to the IMAX theater, that really does have to be gone to to relate to how big it is. Enjoy finishing Harry Potter.
