EMPIRE STRIKES BACK UNCUT *Official Screening* for May the 4th Be With You at Comfort Station

  • Comfort Station 2579 N. Milwaukee Ave. Chicago (map)

So, there is a crowd sourced remaking of the Empire Strikes Back, released just last year. Episode IV was incredible, we can't wait to see Episode V. Because seriously, what else would you want to be doing on May the 4th?

This may be the only Chicago Official Screening sanctioned by the film's producers — don't miss it!

Hosted by Asa Kaplan.

About The Empire Strikes Back Uncut:

Star Wars Uncut is a crazy fan mashup remake of the original Star Wars movies. It is the brainchild of Casey Pugh, a developer dedicated to creating interactive experiences on the web. In 2009, Casey was inspired to use the Internet and an ever-ready pool of passionate Star Wars fans to crowdsource the classic film Star Wars IV: A New Hope. This pet project turned into a labor of love and creativity on a large scale. Nearly a thousand fans came together to participate and the resulting movie is equal parts fun, kooky, and dearly nostalgic.

Star Wars Uncut has been featured in documentaries, news features, and conferences around the world for its unique appeal - we thank everyone for making it such a special project. won a 2010 Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Creative Achievement In Interactive Media - Fiction.
