Star Wars creator George Lucas chooses Chicago for museum

By Tribute on June 25, 2014 | 4 Comments

Although  George Lucas considered Los Angeles and San Francisco as possible sites for his Lucas Museum of Narrative Art, which will contain art and movie memorabilia from the filmmaker’s lengthy career, Chicago was eventually chosen. Lucas is planning to open the museum in 2018. Star Wars fans may know Lucasfilm’s visual effects division is based in San Francisco and the headquarters for Lucasfilm and Skywalker Sound is located in Marin County, across from the Golden Gate Bridge. Lucas initially wanted to build the museum close to the Golden Gate Bridge but his request was refused by city officials. However, Chicago is also an ideal location as Lucas’ new wife Mellody Hobson was born and raised there. The couple is also grateful to the city as Promontory Point was closed so they could host a huge party there after their California wedding. ~Andrea Hodgins

And it couldn’t be more true at this point.Having said that, let me inform you precisely what did work.Your writing is certainly incredibly convincing which is most likely the reason why I am making the effort in order to comment.I do not make it a regular habit of doing that.Second, although I can notice a leaps in logic you make, I am not necessarily confident of just how you appear to unite the details which inturn produce the actual final result.For right now I will subscribe to your issue however wish in the foreseeable future you link the dots much better.
