May 4th is Star Wars Day. (May the Fourth be with you). In commemoration of Star Wars Day, Cine El Rey in McAllen will be having a Star Wars marathon. The original trilogy (Episodes IV, V, and VI) will be screened from noon until 5pm.
The original versions of these movies will be screened. Not the re-touched movies. Not the ones with extra scenes. (These are the original movies how they were released in the theaters. You can only find the originals on laser disc or VHS. The original versions are no longer sold.)
Light sabers and cosplay are encouraged! Come dressed up as your favorite Star Wars character. Bring your lightsabers.
We have confirmation that a sandtrooper and a stormtrooper will be appearing sometime at the marathon. Bring your cameras.
Doors open at noon.

1:45pm – 3:09pm – Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back
3:15pm – 4:49pm – Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi
