Celebrating the ORIGINAL Original Trilogy

Our 30th anniversary celebration of the summer of 1982 has been a lot of fun so far. As I noted below, we felt it was somehow appropriate to sneak in two celebrated re-releases from that summer (Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Empire Strikes Back). I was planning to wait a few weeks and make a surprise announcement that our final screening of the series would in fact be a triple-feature, starting with a screening with the original theatrical cut of Star Wars (in 720p HD, mind you), since that landmark film celebrated its 35th anniversary this year. Vonna was quick to point out how silly it would be to run Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan together, so we decided to make a minor change to the schedule. Star Trek II will now screen with The Road Warrior (eliminating Class of 1984 from the series—sorry Michael J. Fox fans!), and we will now run the original, de-specialized editions of the Star Wars trilogy for the first time in the history of The Slaughtered Lamb Cinema.

One night only, starting at 4pm on Saturday, August 11th.
