Chicago Force arrived the day before the convention would start. Here’s some of the sights on day zero.
On Saturday, May 16th Chicago Force visited the Joliet Historical Museum to participate in the Scavenger Hunt. There were 21 vintage figures scattered around the museum and our job was to hunt them down. It was fun looking for figures and learning more about the history of Joliet.
Join Chicago Force at the Joliet Area Historical Museum as they host a Star Wars Scavenger Hunt. Families are invited to find 20 of the original STAR WARS action figures, plus a special bonus figure.
Afterward, join us at the Woodridge 18 for an Avengers showing
When: Saturday, May 16th 12pm
Where: 204 Ottawa St. Joliet, IL 60432
Free parking across the street from the Museum at Ottawa & Webster streets.
And before that, we will meet at the Barnes & Noble in Village Crossing to discuss Heir to the Jedi by Kevin Hearne. We will meet there at a later than usual time of 4pm. Hope to see you at either or both!
On Saturday, January 31st, Chicago Force went to the AMC Yorktown theatre to view the special showing of Game of Thrones. Yorktown has just completed a remodel, so super plush seats and personal trays were the order of the day. We saw two episodes of Game of Thrones, The Watchers on the Wall and The Children.
These two episodes were perfect for the IMAX screen and sound. The roar of dragons and the bellowing of giants was a great experience.
On Saturday, January 31st Chicago Force is planning a fun filled day.
At 1pm, we will meet upstairs at the Barnes & Noble in Oakbrook Mall to discuss The Star Wars graphic novel and Marvel’s Star Wars #1.
At 4pm, we will view the Games of Thrones IMAX at Yorktown’s AMC
We will wrap up after at the Patio, right outside of Yorktown Mall.
