‘Star Wars’ Original Trilogy Returning To Select Theaters

 

For fans that have never been able to see the Star Wars original trilogy in theaters before, the opportunity is about to present itself.

The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema chain will be sponsoring roadshow screenings of Star Wars at arts venues around the United States this summer. The trilogy will be shown in order, Episode IV – A New Hope, Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back, andEpisode VI – Return of the Jedi, in 20 cities throughout the month of August.

Alamo Drafthouse’s VP of Special Events, Henri Mazza, spoke about why the company wanted to provide this experience to fans.

“It’s always been a dream to show the original Star Wars trilogy again – somehow, someway. Seeing the original trilogy on the big screen for the first time is a real life-altering event and just a supreme amount of fun. When the films became available to book for screenings like these, we jumped at the chance to do something big.”

Star Wars: The Force Awakens broke box office records all around the world and featured many members of the original trilogy cast. Consider the original trilogy a must watch before Rogue One and Episode 8 arrive in theaters.

      Wouldn’t expect that. Alamo is a pretty tiny chain.

    If it’s the theatrical versions I’m in for that.
