Episode IV

Star Wars: The Original Trilogy returning to theaters this summer!

By  | 

This summer the orginal Star Wars trilogy is returning to select theaters. The Alamo Drafthouse is running this event. The films will be the 1997 cuts of the films, not the orginals nor the Blu-ray re-releases but rather the first special editions. Each screening of the film will be followed by special videos, contests, and more. Only 20 cities are getting the opportunity to see these back in theaters. Tickets will go on sale on May fourth.
