For those who haven’t seen the film before, here is a synopsis from the film-loving folks at Tampa Theatre:
“Nineteen years after the formation of the Empire, Luke Skywalker is thrust into the struggle of the Rebel Alliance when he meets Obi-Wan Kenobi, who has lived for years in seclusion on the desert planet of Tatooine. Obi-Wan begins Luke’s Jedi training as Luke joins him on a daring mission to rescue the beautiful Rebel leader Princess Leia from the clutches of the evil Empire. And after Obi-Wan sacrifices himself in a lightsaber duel with his former apprentice, Darth Vader, Luke proves that the Force is with him by destroying the Empire’s dreaded Death Star.”
parkCINEMA is brought to you by the F.E. Lykes Foundation, with support from the City of Tampa and the City of Tampa’s Parks and Recreation Department.
