As we count down to Episode VII, dust off your lightsaber, channel your inner Yoda, and come join us at MVFF’s favorite family night out as we celebrate Star Wars: Episode V—The Empire Strikes Back on the big screen-as it was meant to be seen! “It is a dark time for the Rebellion.” More than three decades later, these words still ring with delicious, ominous anticipation, promising exactly what they did when we first read them: the best sequel of all time to the most revolutionary sci-fi film in history, George Lucas’s Star Wars. Han and Leia kiss! Luke and Leia kiss! Yoda is wise! Boba Fett is cool! R2 fixes the hyperdrive! Luke discovers that Darth Vader-wait! Everyone raise your still-attached hand: Who hasn’t seen it? Okay, okay, no spoilers. This special screening of Empire is meant for people of all ages and friends from all galaxies. Join us for a Festival Star Wars tradition. Costume parade! Prizes! Special guests!

5:00 pm (Family Screening), 8:30 pm (Fan Screening).
