In May 1977, the greatest science fiction film ever made had one heck of an historic movie debut. This film starred relative unknowns Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, a dashing onscreen hero-adventurer, Harrison Ford, and a legendary British stage and screen actor, Alec Guiness. It centered around an interplanetary battle, a classic good versus evil scenario. It broke box office records, made millions in product merchandise, and created super Hollywood stars out of the entire cast. Today, it remains the most beloved and possibly the most recognized film in movie history, spawning spoofs, conventions, extraordinary merch collectors and a billion dollar cinematic franchise of films by its director George Lucas. No matter what you think of Episodes I-III, they’ve earned the famed Lucas a pretty nice sum of cash.
On Tuesday, August 9, you’re invited to join us on the green grass outside the C.W. Morey School in Lowell to enjoy a FREE outdoor screening of the classic 1977 version of Star Wars! Again, this is the ORIGINAL theatrical version — the TRUE classic — without all the later George Lucas CGI add ons. We hope you’ll bring your friends, family, and neighbors, and come dressed in your best Star Wars-inspired intergalactic garb. If you’re game, bring your favorite piece of movie memorabilia for a show and tell with the crowd!
This family-friendly film screening is presented as part of National Night Out in Lowell in partnership with the Lowell Highlands Neighborhood Group, the Lowell Alliance for Families and Neighborhoods and the Lowell Police Department. We’re QUITE excited to be a part of National Night Out once again!
Till then, May The Force continue to be strong with you — see you on Tuesday!
