Where can you see Eddie George and Yoda? The Arnold Film Festival!

I stopped by the Arena Grand this morning for a film screening for critics, and this is what greeted me.

The incredibly real, actual-Yoda-sized Yoda was the first ambassador for the Arnold Sports Film Festival, which runs Friday through Sunday at the Grand. Check out the kick-ass red carpet they've got going.

The nerd in me says it's worth the price of admission ($15 or free with a wristband from the festival) just to see the lifesize movie models. Arena Grand general manager Kara Bodle told me they all came from Columbus' own Scare Factory, the amazing supplier of such goodies for haunted houses around the country.

Buckeye great Eddie George will host the festival — and Arnold is on the panel of judges — making it the perfect mingle spot for muscle-heads and pencil-necked movie geeks.
