Clicked on the link and they did clarify “1997 Special Edition version”. Interesting they specifically say 1997. Wonder if this means they’re showing a 97 print? Most likely not. They’ll probably just pop the 4k blu-ray in a dvd player, but it would be cool if they showed 97. I still prefer the original version of the movie, but the 97SE at least still has Jason Wingreen’s voice and the original Emperor.

You’ll laugh! You’ll cry! You’ll kiss three bucks goodbye!

Yeah, but it has Luke doing the ROTJ Emperor scream while falling down the air shaft.

I’m not really that much of a movie purist. I really should’ve thought my name out a bit more.

Yikes. I forgot about that. Been a while since I’ve watched that. To hear it in a surround sound theatre…

This cinema actually does 35mm screenings, hopefully, this will be the case for ESB.
I’ll update you when I watch it.

It was just the 4k blu-ray, but damn did those colors pop! they looked amazing.

It is good to know it wasn’t the poor 2011 2K version of Empire that had been shown in cinemas before the pandemic, and now they are at least showing a more vibrant and better quality version.

I hope there is something similar and on a wider scale for the 40th anniversary of Jedi next year.
