ARTS Pick: Star Wars

Full force: Over three days, the original Star Wars trilogy—A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi—can be seen in its wide-screen glory. George Lucas launched a cultural phenomenon through the journeys of Luke Skywalker, from peasant to rebel leader; Princess Leia, from princess to revolutionary; and Han Solo, from outlaw to hero. Though hardcore fans may quibble with the changes Lucas made to the original theatrical versions, the experience of seeing these classic films in the theater is still a treat.

Friday, August 23 through Sunday, August 25. $8-10 (an all-day ticket is available for Sunday), times vary. The Paramount Theater, 215 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 979-1333.
