ALAMO DRAFTHOUSE BRINGS ORIGINAL STAR WARS TRILOGY ACROSS THE COUNTRY THIS SUMMER!

“Return of the Trilogy” roadshow program will take audiences back to a galaxy far, far away with triple-feature screenings at more than twenty locations nationwide.

Alamo Drafthouse is so excited they could pull the ears off a gundark to announce they’ll be bringing the original STAR WARS trilogy to cities across the country this August with its epic “Return of the Trilogy” roadshow program.

EPISODE IV – A NEW HOPE, EPISODE V – THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, and EPISODE VI – RETURN OF THE JEDI have long been out of release, locked up tight in the vaults. Now, an ultra rare opportunity will bring these beloved original classics of the STAR WARS universe roaring across the big screen at movie palaces and performing arts venues from coast to coast.

Not only that, they’ll screen back-to-back-to-back as one galactic-sized triple feature – taking audiences from Luke’s humble beginnings on Tattooine all the way through to the final climactic battle between the Rebel Alliance and the Galactic Empire in a single sitting. The Force, as they say, will be strong with us.

“It’s always been a dream to show the original STAR WARS trilogy again – somehow, someway,” says Alamo Drafthouse’s VP of Special Events, Henri Mazza. “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.”

While many dates and locations are still to be announced, “Return of the Trilogy” screenings will take place at venues in over 20 cities throughout the month of August. All three of the films will be presented in their 1997 re-release format. Tickets for most markets will go on sale at ReturnOfTheTrilogy.com on May 4th, otherwise known as Star Wars Day: May the 4th Be With You.

More than just an epic triple-feature, each “Return of the Trilogy” show will be in its own unique celebratory event, featuring specially curated video content before and between films, contests, props to bring the power of the Force to life, and other special surprises. And coming dressed as your favorite Jedi, scoundrel pilot, or rebel scum will be very much encouraged.

THE RETURN OF THE TRILOGY Roadshow:

August 6 – San Francisco, CA / The Warfield

August 6 – Kansas City, MO / The Midland Theatre

August 6 – Washington, D.C. / Warner Theatre

August 6 – Los Angeles, CA / The Theatre at the Ace Hotel

It's not the original theatrical versions, though, just the special editions. Pass.

J.J. Abrams just gave a big clue to one of the biggest mysteries in the "Star Wars" universe.
Speaking at New York's Tribeca Film Festival on Friday night, the director of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens, said that the parents of the film's heroine, Rey, were not in the hit Disney (DIS) film.
Quote:
"Rey's parents are not in Episode VII," Abrams said to the audience. "So I can't possibly at this moment tell you who they are."
The fact the character played by Daisy Ridley can use the film's all powerful Force has fans of the saga speculating that she may be the daughter of "Star Wars" characters like Luke Skywalker or Princess Leia and Han Solo.
Welp

He said what he meant was, we didn't learn who her parents are in Episode 7. Big difference.

I heard the new NSX, with upgraded tires, will make an appearance in Episode 8. It'll be the first time Star Wars has ever spoken of time travel.

If the Millennium Falcon were on a treadmill, could it still do the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs?

^ Well, I guess Rian Johnson isn't necessarily on the same page as JJ Abrams in this regard, but it certainly seemed like JJ was very conscious of the OT fans' criticisms of the prequels and was determined not to repeat those mistakes. Midichlorians were practically up there with Jar Jar as far as fan hate, so I kinda doubt they would go this route.

Apparently they don't mention Midichlorians, it's just the force

That wasn't "the force", that was Plagueis and Sidious manipulating the force. The dark side baby, more powerful than the idiot Jedi will ever know.

Can't be coincidence.

Yep, he's Ezra, and I believe he infiltrates the resistance.

Dammit. Ok so maybe Snoke is Boba Fett?

One of the Biggest Theories About Star Wars'Big New Bad Guy Has Been Shot Down

Quote:
Star Wars

Wild theories about the real identity of Supreme Leader Snoke have been bandied about ever since The Force Awakens, but the most prominent has been that Snoke is secretly Darth Plagueis the Wise, the master of Palpatine mentioned in Revenge of the Sith, a Sith who had learned how to use the Force to control life and death. However, resident Lucasfilm story group loremaster Pablo Hidalgo has taken to Twitter to once and for all confirm that there is no connection between the two figures.

I think Snoke can be whoever the writers want him to be. Any "lore" outside the context of the movies is just nice information but the movies have no real obligation to follow anything. Snoke could be anyone if they wanted to bend the story far enough.

you got me. They did raise some interesting points about Rey using her anger to her benefit, her fighting style and deriving pleasure from psychologically torturing others. It also flips the script and has a Skywalker as the bad guy and a Palpatine as the good one. Just far enough out of left field to be a good twist, not far enough to just be ridiculous.

I'm not sure about you guys but I spotted that Sidious thrust right off the bat. I remember watching it the very first time with the Mrs and turning to her and saying exactly that... "Look at her fighting style...it mirrors Palpatines"...
