“By far the most imaginative part of the Star Wars trilogy... You can feel the love of movie magic that went into its cascading imagery." Pauline Kael, The New Yorker

Critics mauled this on its original release - the original Star Wars was venerated by many - but The Empire Strikes Back is now recognized as (arguably) the best film in the Star Wars saga, with strong, nuanced performances, a mature, darker take on the material, and a brave, emotional and shocking cliffhanger that still has the power to enthrall 40 years on.

The story continues with the freedom fighters of the Rebel Alliance pitted against the massively powerful Galactic Empire and its elite forces, while the battle between Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Darth Vadar gets personal. Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) find time for a bit of budding romance between epic struggles, and Star Wars' favourite mini Jedi, Yoda, makes his first appearance.  It's a blast (off)!

Seating will be allocated when you purchase your ticket/s, automatically leaving empty a one-seat space (equivalent to 1 metre) to either side of your booking.  Please don't leave more space than that when choosing your seats; with our reduced capacity we need to use our remaining space well, as well as safely.  Thank you!

We are delighted to be partnering local estate agent Hamptons for a new series of sponsored screenings which take up where our favourite Greene Sundays left off.  "Original Features by Hamptons" will provide great movies for the great price of only £2.50, starting with this first screening.  We're sure you'll join us in wishing "Original Features" a warm welcome!  Tickets for this one-off screening are available through usual Lexi channels.  When they're gone, they're gone!
