The original Star Wars trilogy is coming back to Modesto! In the month of August, The Historic State Theatre will be showing the epic saga on the big screen in downtown Modesto.

As an epic battle for the fate of the galaxy approaches, the Empire quickly finishes construction on another Death Star battle station, and the Emperor himself soon arrives to personally oversee the operation. Rescuing Han Solo from his captor Jabba the Hutt, Princess Leia helps organize the Rebel attack and Luke Skywalker prepares for final confrontation with Darth Vader to prove himself a Jedi and perhaps bring out the good within his father’s soul. As the Rebels launch their offensive, Skywalker is brought before the Emperor, and after a lightsaber duel with Vader refuses the Emperor’s temptations. In a fateful moment, Vader chooses to save his son, destroying the Emperor and sacrificing himself, a final redeeming act as Anakin Skywalker.
