In 1977, it was not Episode IV, it was a self-contained pleasure that made it okay again to cheer at the screen.

May The 4th Be With You

A long time ago in this very galaxy, a science fiction feature film launched what would go on to become one of the most successful film franchises of the 20th century. Released on May 25th, 1977, Star Wars: A New Hope broke box office records and introduced the world to Luke, Leia, Han, Chewbacca and a host of memorable characters that populated a fully realised space opera universe. Part of the fabric of that world is John Williams' instantly memorable score, now performed by the Richmond Symphony and renowned Japanese conductor Keitaro Harada alongside an HD screening of the film - all to celebrate the auspicious date of May the 4th!

Iconic musical moments like The Imperial March and the wistful Main Theme punctuate the story of a humble Tatooine farm boy named Luke Skywalker who stumbles across a hidden message from the Rebel Alliance's great leader Princess Leia Organa. Under orders from the cruel Darth Vader, the Imperial Forces are holding Leia hostage and its up to Luke (who's just discovered his Jedi powers), captain of the Millenium Falcon Han Solo and droid duo R2-D2 and C-3PO to rescue the princess, help the alliance and bring justice to the evil Empire.
