Star Wars “Empire Strikes Back” Charity Benefit

In honor of the 30th anniversary of "The Empire Strikes Back," there will be a one night screening of the Star Wars classic at the ArcLight Hollywood.  For all of those fortunate enough to be in the LA area the screening will be on May 19th.

Harrison Ford will attend the screening and give an on-stage Q&A!  I’m glad to see him put aside his aversion to be with Star Wars fans at least to help out with the charity benefit.

The event will benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

This will also be the kickoff event for a year long charity campaign planned by Lucasfilm.

This is a great example of fandom at it’s best!  Having a celebration of something we love, with someone who is directly involved in the project and doing it to raise money to benefit a cause that helps out everyone in the community.  Kudos!
