Worth the Trip
Star Wars Marathon Event
1:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. December 17
AMC River East 21, 322 E. Illinois Street, Chicago
This 20-hour marathon makes this an event more for those of you who are “kids at heart” versus actual kids, but with only 38 locations hosting the event nationwide, and one being in Chicago, it’s worth a mention. Diehard fans will be able to watch all seven movies back-to-back, culminating with The Force Awakens at 7:00 p.m. They are shown in chronological episode order, so if you want to you can sleep straight through The Phantom Menace.
Will you be lined up to see the new movie?
