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