More than any other movie, the ‘first’ Star Wars has been our single most-requested title and the film that many patrons remember seeing in first run on the Virginia screen back in the late seventies.
Join us for this special screening of the picture that started it all!
For nearly 20 years, The News-Gazette has sponsored incredible classic movies at the Virginia Theatre with its popular film series. Screened one Saturday or Sunday each month (except in October and December, when we highlight a series of classic horror and Christmas films, respectively), The News-Gazette Film Series is your ticket to Hollywood’s golden age.
Add house organist David Schroeder performing on the Virginia’s historic Hope Jones II Wurlitzer pipe organ, and you have an evening of entertainment fit for the whole family!
News-Gazette film critic Richard Leskosky will be back this season following most 7pm News-Gazette screenings for a post-show talk about each movie, in the Virginia lobby.
