I completely forgot that May the 4th (genius play on words by the way) was global Star Wars day, but Event Cinemas is on top of the unofficial geek holiday. Select Event Cinemas will be holding the Star Wars ‘May The 4th Be With You’ Movie Marathon across two days.
On May 3rd, Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace (PG), Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones (PG) and Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith (M) will be played. I’m personally predicting a lesser attendance for this one.
On May 4th, the original trilogy (although second in the timeline… isn’t that infuriating to explain to noobs!) will play: Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope (PG), Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back (PG) and Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi (PG).
As you can see on the right, tickets for each marathon cost $25 (plus $1.10 as an online booking fee). For the more hardcore of fans who wish to attend, do so in full cosplay and you could win the best dressed competition! Movie passes and light sabres will be up for grabs!
