Local Star Wars fanatic wins Drafthouse Star Wars contest

Five fans enter, one fan leaves.

Austin Star share_1200x627Wars fan Jim Braden (he of this dazzling toy collection) has won the Alamo Drafthouse’s “Star Wars: The Marathon Awakens” contest after 46 hours of watching the first six star wars movie, the holiday special (yes, the holiday special) and “The Force Awakens” nine (yes, nine) times.

Five people competed, starting this madness 4:30 a.m. Dec. 17.  No sleep, no talking and no texting. Braden beat them all. He now has a Drafthouse pass good for seven years, a complete set of 2015 and 2016 Topps Star Wars cards, some rare Star Wars  Mondo prints and a theater seat named in his honor, possibly one now perfectly shaped to his rear end.
