PICTURES FROM THE OPENING DAY IN MODESTO
April 19, 1999


In George Lucas' home town, Modesto California, at the gala opening of the Brendan theater. Fan had been lined up for days. This was not just a movie, it was an event.

Waiting in line for 6 hours are my friends Jerome Alberta (center with shades), Tami Kuipers (black jacket, sitting) and daughter Kat (blue sweater, sitting).
