Brisbane Is Getting Another Star Wars Screening with a Live Orchestra

When Darth Vader told Luke Skywalker that they're more than just mortal enemies, it became one of the most famous lines of dialogue in movie history (and one of the most mis-quoted). If you've seen Star Wars: Episode V — The Empire Strikes Back, you'll know that it's a powerful, memorable moment that changes the shape of the entire space saga. Even if you haven't, you know what we're talking about.

Now, imagine just how epic it'll feel when you're watching the flick on a big screen and listening to John Williams' iconic score played by a live orchestra. Yes, The Force is strong in Brisbane once more, with Queensland Symphony Orchestra staging the next in their Star Wars screening and performance series on December 1 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Jedis, wookiees and droids alike can expect two sessions of tussles between the Rebels and the Empire, Luke learning his true parentage, Han flirting with Leia and getting frozen in carbon, Chewbacca being awesome, R2-D2 being adorable and C-3PO being annoying (well, he is). Plus, it's the flick that marks the first appearance of Lando Calrissian and the first time 'The Imperial March' is heard.

If you're thinking that it's a great time to be a Brisbane fan of the George Lucas-created franchise, then you're right. The Last Jedi and Solo: A Star Wars Story are still fresh in everyone's memories, and these types of special events keep on coming — we've got a good feeling that Return of the Jedi will eventually get the same treatment as well.

Star Wars: Episode V — The Empire Strikes Back will screen at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre on December 1, 2018. Grab tickets online
