Watch the movie Stars Wars: The Extended Director's Cut.

The original 1977 movie that started the franchise with a bonus: This is the Extended Director's Cut. Over 88 minutes of symphonic music composed by John Williams. This is the final movie at Millennium Park. Bring something to share or a bottle of wine if you like. We will chat it up before and after the movie. The movie starts at 6:30 pm sharp, but come whenever you like. Don't let work get in the way. We will be here before, during and after the movie. Don't miss it !

    I was there but got there kind of late. There were a bunch of blue tarps on that side of the lawn! Anyhow, I went to sit in the front where there were tons of seats. Awesome view and sound! It was like being there! Didn't want you to think I was a no show.... :)

    Sorry for no-show....I am sure I missed a fun time. How was the movie? Were you able to watch such an early outdoors showing?

      The movie, sound and crowd were a lot of fun. Sorry you missed it. The screen was amazingly bright, even before dusk. Give it a try next year !

    TONIGHT: WEDNESDAY, 8/21/13 at 5:30 PM, MOVIE START TIME: 6:30 PM

    Thanks for your interest in tonight's movie: "STAR WARS: THE EXTENDED DIRECTOR'S CUT"

    Here are last minute guidelines:

    1.) BRING A LAWN CHAIR if you have one. If not, that is okay, bring a large towel or blanket. I am bringing a tarp to cover a reasonable area for our group. Chairs will help stake our claim.

    2.) If you are bringing something to eat or drink:

    By FIRST name: A-G Bring a light, easy to handle snack (no plates or utensils) popcorn, chips etc.

    By FIRST name: H-M Bring wine or a soft drink. Plus bring cups.

    Other FIRST names: Bring ice or whatever you like.

    3.) There is a chance of rain, but not until about 10 pm. Bring an umbrella, just in case.

    4.) For directions to our location at Millennium Park, call or text Steve at (847) 868-0927.

    See you there !
