Great news for Star Wars fans as the first film is getting a special Christmas screening along with a live orchestra accompaniment.

Star Wars: A New Hope In Concert will see its musical score performed by the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra at the 3Arena.

The 82-piece group will be conducted by David Mahoney and it sounds like it’s going to be a night to remember.


Legendary composer John Williams, who scored all eight of the films, won an Oscar for his work on the 1977 Star Wars: A New Hope film.

The special screening will take place on Wednesday December 5 and tickets are on sale via Ticketmaster now, starting from €63.45.
