    It's Original Trilogy time, at the John Anson Ford Theatres in Hollywood, this July. At the helm? Cinespia. Tickets are available now for the three-Sundays-in-a-row event.

    What to Know

    • July 7, 14, and 21

    • John Anson Ford Theatres

    • $20-$40 per screening

    Cinespia, that stylish, DJ'd-out, picnic-it-up film series collective, is very much associated in many minds with one iconic property: Hollywood Forever cemetery.

    But much like an Imperial Cruiser can traverse long distances in a matter of minutes, and the Millennium Falcon can complete the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs, Cinespia, too, can go on the move, without too much force.

    There will, however, be plenty of Force involved, as in the capital F kind, when the film group lands its ship at the John Anson Ford Theatres in Hollywood over three July Saturdays.

    That's right, you'll want to head up to the Ford, on the Cahuenga Pass, for three consecutive Saturday nights of movies so good you can Chewie on them.

    So Chewie this: The Original "Star Wars" Trilogy, meaning episodes four, five, and six, will pop up at the Ford on July 7, 14, and 21.

    "A New Hope" is up first on July 7, then "The Empire Strikes Back" on July 14, rounded out by "Return of the Jedi," on July 21.

    Again, that's one film per Sunday night, not all three bunched together in a row.

    Screened in a row, they shall not be. Even Yoda knows that.

    Delivering this galactic goodie to fans? Amazon Studios and Amazon Prime Video get the "presented by" credit here.

    Tickets are $20-$40, there'll be other delightful doings, like "cosmic DJ sets" and that cosplay-cool Cinespia Photo Booth, and it will all be under the stars.

    Like the movies screened at Hollywood Forever, but we must repeat: This is not at the Santa Monica Boulevard cemetery but rather the historic alfresco venue on Cahuenga Boulevard, cheek-by-jowl with the 101 Freeway.

    So are you as happy as an Ewok chillaxing in his treehouse about this news? Best turn your Landspeeder in the direction of Cinespia now.
