Decades before baby Yoda dominated our social feeds and memes, sci-fi nerd god George Lucas introduced the world to the orphan Luke Skywalker, a dashing Han Solo, a cinnamon bun-rocking Princess Leia and an evil man who was really into the all-black and helmet look. While you may have seen the 1977 classic that inspired memorable franchises and spinoffs (as well as a trilogy we all wish we could forget), you won’t have experienced the thrill of a live orchestra performing the full score during Luke’s nail-biting dogfight through the narrow trenches of the Death Star.
