Star Wars Episode VII – With Update!

October 19th, 2015

Tonight tickets will go on sale for a live-action Star Wars film for the first time in ten years. Chicago Force has thought long and hard on what would be the best way to see this actual sequel to the Original Trilogy. So we are asking you to join us to see the movie marathon at Rosemont 18. Please buy your ticket tonight to the marathon tonight and we will have more to announce as the movie gets closer.

Update 10/20! Rosemont 18 was on Fandango to sell the tickets, but because of the online troubles, they took them off. You can buy marathon tickets by going to the box office.
