FANBOYS with screenwriter Ernie Cline, proceeds to benefit The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

Ernie Cline made a lot of waves last year with the release of his novel "Ready Player One," an engaging look at nostalgia in a futuristic setting. Fans were already familiar with Cline's work, though, through his film FANBOYS, a movie that took over ten years to find its way into theaters - to the delight of audiences and critics.

FANBOYS, a 2009 comedy from director Kyle Newman, stars Sam Huntington, Chris Marquette, Dan Fogler, Jay Baruchel and Kristen Bell as a group of friends who plot to break into George Lucas' Skywalker Ranch in order to steal a rough cut of the upcoming new film, THE PHANTOM MENACE. Featuring a wide assortment of cameos such as Billy Dee Williams, Danny Trejo, Seth Rogan, Carrie Fisher, Kevin Smith and William Shatner. 

Join Cline and the 501st Legion, the world's definitive Imperial Costuming organization, as they screen FANBOYS to benefit The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. LLS is the world's largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer. LLS funds lifesaving blood cancer research around the world and provides free information and support services.Their key mission is to help blood cancer patients live better, longer lives.

Expect a theater full of costumed Stormtroopers, droids and all the Star Wars nerdiness you can handle. Audiences are encouraged to come dressed in their favorite Star Wars costume and the DeLorean Motor Company will be on hand during the screening with vehicles on display.
