Movie Marathon: Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back

Saturday August 17 at 4:00 PM

Relive the most saga of the 20th century when Lucas Theatre for the Arts presents an all-day movie marathon of the original Star Wars trilogy.

Three years after the destruction of the Death Star, Imperial forces continue to pursue the Rebels. After the Rebellion’s defeat on the ice planet Hoth, Luke journeys to the planet Dagobah to train with Jedi Master Yoda, who has lived in hiding since the fall of the Republic. In an attempt to convert Luke to the dark side, Darth Vader lures young Skywalker into a trap at Cloud City. In the midst of a fierce lightsaber duel with the Sith Lord, Luke faces the startling revelation that the Vader is in fact his father.

The series begins with Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope at noon and ends with Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi at 8 p.m.
