The ninth annual Plaza Classic Film Festival, which runs August 4-14, will bring Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia to the Plaza Theatre’s big screen with showings of Star Wars (1977), officially titled Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, and the sequels Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (1983).
It is the first time all three of director-creator George Lucas’ original Star Wars titles will be shown at the Plaza Classic Film Festival, which had two sell-out shows of the first Star Wars movie in 2009.
Tickets for the Star Wars movies will go on sale in early July with the rest of this year’s 90-movie Plaza Classic lineup. More titles will be announced later. Festival Passes — which include admission to all ticketed movies, an express admission lane and access to special events — are available for $200 at http://plazaclassic.com/ or by calling 915-533-4020.
