NICKELODEON THEATER COMPANY CELEBRATES FIRST BIRTHDAY WITH 'STAR WARS' TRILOGY FILM FESTIVAL

 NICKELODEON THEATER COMPANY CELEBRATES FIRST BIRTHDAY WITH
 'STAR WARS' TRILOGY FILM FESTIVAL
 SAN DIEGO, Nov. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Director George Lucas has presented Nickelodeon's Mission Market Place 8 Theaters in Oceanside with a galactic birthday gift -- the San Diego premiere of the complete "Star Wars" trilogy.
 The week-long festival offers movie lovers the opportunity of seeing "Star Wars" (1977), "The Empire Strikes Back" (1980) and "Return Of The Jedi" (1983) all in one sitting, from Friday, Nov. 6 through Thursday, Nov. 12. This is the first time they have ever been presented together in San Diego County.
 John Ellison Jr., president of Nickelodeon Theater Co., San Diego's only locally owned and operated motion picture theater company, stated that Lucas agreed to provide new 35mm prints for their one year birthday party because "Nickelodeon's Mission Marketplace 8 is one of only 11 theaters in the world offering Lucas's THX sound system in all auditoriums and presents the perfect environment for the movie-going public. We will present these films the way George Lucas meant them to be seen, with the finest presentation available."
 All monies collected from the festival will be donated to the North County Armed Services YMCA, which provides extensive children's activities on and around Camp Pendleton, serving 3,500 different children each year. "We wanted to thank the community for making us the most popular theater in North County," Ellison said.
 Tickets, for each of the two complete showings daily, at $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under, include the "Star Wars" trilogy, popcorn and soft drink. A special Veterans Day rate of $5 for everyone will be offered on Nov. 11, with special group rates available by calling Jill Diliberto of the North County Armed Services YMCA at 619-722-7671.
