A long time ago (1977) in a movie theater far, far away, a film was released that taught us the ways of the Force. We’re celebrating the 40th anniversary of Star Wars: A New Hope with an evening of Star Wars activities and excitement. The evening will include:

  • Talks with experts about the films and their impact (6:00 pm to 7:00 pm)
  • Photo opportunities with costumed characters
  • Barclay Brass celebrating the classic score
  • Two free screenings of Star Wars: A New Hope in the Museum’s Lockheed Martin IMAX Theater (sold out)

All tickets for the 5:00 and 7:30 pm screenings of Star Wars: A New Hope have been released and the standby list is now closed.

Please allow time to pass through the Museum’s security screening. For safety purposes, no replica weapons of any kind are allowed, including replica lightsabers and blasters. Full-face masks are prohibited on guests over 16 years of age.
