Sorry, there are no Star Wars Marathon dates.
"A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away. . .”
It’s been 39 years since audiences first read those words on movie screens. Thirty-nine years since we first learned of the Force, of Jedi, lightsabers, X-wings and the Death Star. But even after all those years, the Force is still strong with us all.
This August, the Alamo Drafthouse will celebrate our love for the movie trilogy that changed so many lives for the better, with this incredibly rare screening of the digital special edition versions of A NEW HOPE, THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK and THE RETURN OF THE JEDI. Hitting the Midland screen for the first time ever, this marathon event will give Kansas City’s STAR WARS fans a chance to experience these classic adventures in a room filled with thousands of other devoted STAR WARS enthusiasts.
We’re hoping to see crowds of people dressed in their finest Jedi robes or Galactic Empire uniforms, so start working on your costumes now (or just dust off your favorite from your collection). Live emcees from the Alamo’s team will host costume contests and trivia games, and we’ll have photographers on hand to capture all of the excitement.
