The Original “Star Wars” Trilogy Comes Back to The Big Screen


By Shannon Fox, @shannonfox


If you’ve been wondering what could possibly fill the bantha-sized hole in your Star-Wars-obsessed heart until Rogue One comes out in December, you can rest easy: Alamo Drafthouse has got you covered.


The movie chain just announced “The Return of the Trilogy” Roadshow, which will bring the original Star Wars trilogy (well, the 1997 re-release, so expect the “who shot first” argument to resurface from those late-nineties special effects) back to movie theaters across the country this August.  The roadshow will travel to 20 different cities, showing all three of the films (Episode IV – A New Hope, Episode V- The Empire Strikes Back, and Episode VI- Return of the Jedi) back-to-back in one incredible viewing experience.  Not only that, but Alamo plans to bring special footage, activities, and, of course, cosplay contests to each city to add to the fun.
