With May the Fourth (be with you) behind us and the next Star Wars release ahead of us, this is the perfect time for all ages to show their Star Wars love!  Stormtroopers from the 501st Legion will be here for picture opportunities and throughout the day, we'll run some of the older Star Wars spinoffs on our medium-screen. There will be Star Wars snacks and Star Wars crafts for all ages. Will you join us? Do or do not. There is no try. No registration needed.

1:30pm – 2:45pm    Caravan of Courage (Rated G)                                                                      

Community Room, lower level

The original 1984 made-for-TV film, executive-produced by George Lucas, with special effects provided by Industrial Light and Magic, is now here on the “big” screen. It was first telecast with great fanfare November 25, 1984; its soundtrack was simulcast on regional FM radio stations to provide a "full stereo" effect. The plot concerns two young kids searching through space for their missing parents. The kids wind up on the forest moon of Endor, where dwell the courageous little Ewoks, lead by Wicket. Winner of an Emmy Award for Outstanding Children's Program (though not necessarily aimed exclusively at kids).

 

3:00pm – 4:45pm    The Battle for Endor (Rated G)                                                                    

Community Room, lower level

The original 1986 made-for-TV film, executive-produced by George Lucas, with special effects provided by Industrial Light and Magic, is now here on the “big” screen.  When two orphans and a hermit discover that a wicked sorceress and an evil king are plotting to destroy their forest home, they turn for help to the cute and fuzzy Ewoks. Based on characters from Return of the Jedi, this made-for-television fantasy was aimed at a children's audience. Rated G.
