See the original ‘Star Wars’ films the way they were meant to be

Back on the big screen - and what a venue.
"Star Wars: A New Hope"Lucasfilm

Some movies are just better on a big screen. And some movies deserve a setting way beyond your ordinary movie theater.

On Sunday, Aug. 7, the original “Star Wars” trilogy will get an appropriately grand setting for its latest big-screen rerelease: Brooklyn’s Kings Theatre. The venue is holdinga marathon of all three films in partnership with Alamo Drafthouse. These will be the special edition versions, so purists be warned, but it’ll be the first time these movies will be back in theaters since their original 1997 rerelease.
