Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens will screen at Smithsonian’s Air and Space Museum. It’s true. All of it.
Yesterday, after waiting for what seemed like an eternity for halftime to come in the Monday night sportsball game, the final trailer for The Force Awakens dropped. The Internet collectively lost their shit. Han Solo! Kylo Ren speaking! Princess Leia! X-Wings! Lightsaber action! Explosions! Pewpewpews! Indeed, the trailer has all that and more.
As the trailer dropped, tickets also went on sale for the first screenings of the new Star Wars film, the first frames of which will begin screening at 7 p.m. on Dec. 17. Fandango crashed from all the traffic. (It’s back up now, however).
A quick scan of Fandango shows that there’s actually a lot of tickets still available to see the film at D.C.-area theaters the night it opens, but if you want to a real screening experience, see at the Air and Space Museum. The film will screen at both the museum’s Lockheed Martin IMAX Theater in D.C. and the Airbus IMAX Theater at the Museum’s Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Va. Buy ’em here.
Oh and watch the trailer one more time because—holy shit:
