Last weekend, The Field Museum hosted a series of digital screenings of Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back in celebration of the 30th anniversary. There was a flyer handed to attendees advertising a special online auction in conjunction with the 10th birthday of SUE, the largest, most complete, and best preserved Tyrannosaurus rex fossil ever discovered.
