What better way to close out the 2021 Flicks at the Fountain outdoor movie series, than with the 44-year-old original, classic, Star Wars: A New Hope, the movie that began it all.

Star Wars (retroactively titled Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope) is a 1977 American epic space-opera film written and directed by George Lucas, produced by Lucasfilm and distributed by 20th Century Fox. It stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Peter Cushing, Alec Guinness, David Prowse, James Earl Jones, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker and Peter Mayhew. It is the first installment of the original Star Wars trilogy, the first of the franchise to be produced, and the fourth episode of the "Skywalker saga".

Costumes are highly encouraged for this movie, the fourth and final one of the 2021 Flicks at the Fountain series. We will have extra giveaways for those in costume and plenty of fun for all. The movie will start no later than 8pm; claim your spot in the iconic fountain parking lot at the corner of Grand and State starting at 6pm.
