DCSWCC 20th Anniversary Event

#1 Post by Kingpin » Thu Jan 26, 2023 12:13 am

The DC Star Wars Collecting Club is Turning Twenty!

In 2003, a small group of strangers, who knew nothing about each other besides their Yahoo usernames, cautiously gathered at a library in Northern Virginia and created a spark to light the fire that created the DC Star Wars Collecting Club (DCSWCC). Now, the DCSWCC invites YOU to join us for a 20th anniversary celebration of two decades of friendship and collecting!

Be a part of the celebration! On April 23, 2023, members of the DC Star Wars Collecting Club will assemble at the AFI Silver Theater and Culture Center in Silver Spring, MD, for an incredible party to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the club as well as the 40th anniversary of Return of the Jedi. Join the DCSWCC as we explore the history of the club and the history of Star Wars in the DC area. On the big screen at AFI Silver, sit back with friends and enjoy a specially curated selection of rare news clips and short films – including the award-winning “Waiting for Jar Jar”, filmed in Washington, DC – culminating in a private screening of Return of the Jedi sanctioned by Lucasfilm and Disney!

Members of the club will be on hand to greet visitors, and swag and collectibles created by the club over its 20-year history will be on display. Following the festival at AFI Silver, attendees are invited to join the DCSWCC members for a private gathering at McGinty’s Public House, just three blocks from the theater in walkable downtown Silver Spring.

But the Sunday celebration at AFI Silver and McGinty’s is only part of our weekend of special events! Club members will be opening their collections for visiting by all fellow collectors. More details about this Saturday “Kessel Run” will be announced soon, as well as more exciting details that are sure to make our 20th anniversary celebration a Star Wars weekend long remembered!

Ticket details for the AFI Silver Theater event and separate dinner event at McGinty’s public will also be announced soon. If you’re interested in joining us, contact your friends in the DCSWCC and ask to be added to the exclusive Facebook group, to keep up to date with all the details. travel planning, etc. Only 75 seats are available, so act fast!
