Mission Report: We all met in the carpark by the cinemas at 0830, the Redback infiltrators getting there nice and early and keen to troop. Not that we needed good weather being inside but it was a perfect winters day. We kitted up in the cinema and stored our bags in the tiny storeroom stair well (that was fun!)

After hearing stories of the onslaught from the previous year we armed ourselves with blasters and light sabers and prepared for the kids. While it got a bit crowded at times we managed to keep the crowds under control with some specialised Imperial and Jedi wrangling techniques. Many photos were taken and high five’s given and some of the kids were keen to hold the lightsabers. We were little match though for the balloon-animal making clown however, whose balloon swords and flowers were hugely popular.

There were some funny moments, when Rhino was asked for a photo by 3 elderly ladies seeing some other movie, impressed by his Imperial officer uniform. Rhino was embarrassed so tried to improve his street cred by presenting Jedi Rach with a balloon rose on bended knee. But she was impervious to his advances and used her Jedi powers on his weak mind to discourage him, he did not seem adversely affected by the experience.

Mission Status: The mission was a success, the kids and parents there for Kidsflix event enjoyed having us there, as did some surprised members of the public there for other movies. The cinema manager was very grateful also. It was good to have a Rebel presence amongst all the Imperials to share the full ‘live’ Star Wars experience with the well deserving kids. After all, you just can’t beat a lightsabre or two!
