Film with Live Orchestra: The Empire Strikes Back

Friday, March 6 | 7:30 PM

Mizner Park Amphitheater


The Empire Strikes Back is the most critically acclaimed film in the Star Wars franchise. It is also widely regarded as one of the most important films ever: it ranked number 3 on Empire's 2008 list of the 500 greatest movies of all time.

The action picks up three years after the first firm, A New Hope, as Darth Vader and the Emperor pursues Luke Skywalker’s friends – Han Solo, Princess Leia Organa, and others – across the galaxy. Luke, meanwhile, is studying the Force under Jedi Master Yoda. When Vader captures Luke's friends, Luke must decide whether to complete his training and become a Jedi Knight, or to confront Vader and save them.

A film that literally defines the words heroic and epic, The Empire Strikes Back could not be more enjoyable than when viewed outdoors, on a warm spring evening, with The Symphonia (conducted by Constantine Kitsopoulos) playing out the score live before a massive 130-LCD screen.

It promised to be a magical evening filled with light sabers, Jedi, Jabba the Hut, and, of course, Yoda.
