‘Star Wars’ original trilogy back in theaters

on

Alamo Drafthouse is bringing the first three “Star Wars” movies to more than 20 cities in August with its “Return of the Trilogy” roadshow program.

The distributor noted that the films — “Episode IV – A New Hope,” “Episode V –The Empire Strikes Back” and “Episode VI – Return of the Jedi” — have long been out of release. Most of the showings will screen back-to-back-to-back as a single triple feature.

“It’s always been a dream to show the original ‘Star Wars’ trilogy again — somehow, someway,” said 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.”

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 4 — dubbed “Star Wars Day: May the 4th Be With You.”

Each “Return of the Trilogy” show will feature specially curated video content before and between films, contests and props.
