Red-faced Star Wars fanatics who have started queuing up for the first tickets to see the sixth and final installment of the 28-year-old sci-fi series have been told they've targeted the wrong cinema.

A line of devotees formed outside Hollywood's Grauman's Chinese Theater last weekend (02APR05) - seven weeks before the film hits cinemas.

But Grauman's won't be hosting the first screenings of STAR WARS: EPISODE III - REVENGE OF THE SITH on 19 May (05) - that honour falls to the state-of-the-art Arclight cinema on Sunset Boulevard.

But the diehard Star Wars fans who have made Hollywood Boulevard their home for the past few days are refusing to move.

Superfan SARAH SPRAGUE tells news channel CNN, "This is still the epicentre for Star Wars fans. For the big iconic pictures of the 1970s, people lining up were here."
