How would you like to rub elbows with stormtroopers and jedi while watching the new Star Wars film on opening night?
Well you could be in luck, Fairfax Media is giving away a double-pass to the midnight screening of Rogue One at Maitland Reading Cinemas on December 15-16.
Rogue will tell the story of a group of rebel spies on a mission to steal the plans for the Empire’s infamous Death Star.
Last year hundreds of fans, many decked out in impressive costumes, made Maitland Reading Cinema look like a galaxy far, far away for the launch of Star Wars: Force Awakens.
Among them were members of Newcastle’s garrison of the 501st Legion – the certified superfans in full replica stormtrooper armor.
Cinema manager Yvette Cavanagh said it was a tradition for fans to dress up and attend midnight screenings.
“Star Wars has been going on so long it’s a multi-generational film,” she said.
“The older fans remember seeing it, and the younger fans have really embraced it.”
