The Four Seasons hosts a legend on June 13. Filmmaker George Lucas (of "Star Wars" and "Indiana Jones" fame) will be the guest of honor at an exclusive event, where he will receive the Gene Siskel Film Center Visionary Award for Innovation in Filmmaking. In addition to the presentation of the statue (designed by the team behind Oscar), the white-bearded one will also engage in a discussion led by, um, Jon Favreau (come on, he did direct "Iron Man"). The conversation will include film clips from throughout Lucas's career.

The evening will kick off with hors d'oeuvres and cocktails at 6 p.m., followed by a dinner menu inspired by Lucas's films. Tickets ($400-$1,000) are available by phone at (312) 846-2072.

One question: Does a Storm Trooper suit qualify as "cocktail glam"?
