STAR WARS: The Force Awakens
2015 | Rated PG-13 | Runtime: 136 Min
In this thrilling continuation of the epic space opera, ex-stormtrooper Finn (John Boyega), scrappy desert dweller Rey (Daisy Ridley), and droid companion BB-8 get caught up in a galactic war when they come across a map containing the whereabouts of the vanished Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). They soon embark on an epic adventure that brings them face-to-face with heroes from the past, as well as new villains such as Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and the First Order, a fascist regime that has emerged from the ashes of the old Empire. Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Peter Mayhew, and Anthony Daniels return to reprise their classic roles.
ROSIES Foundation will be bringing the ROSIES Bus to Helms Avenue from 4 to 7pm, featuring an exclusive Frozen Yogurt sandwich from The Bigg Chill and Enjoyer Popsicles. Both of these products are made available from ROSIES partners who support their mission. ROSIES creates employment opportunities that empower people with diverse abilities through professional development and social enterprise.
The ROSIE bus features a special party-karaoke system where guests can sing along to their favorite songs as they order their desserts before the movie begins. ROSIES employees facilitate the karaoke experience, helping to spread awareness about everyone’s diverse abilities. We can’t wait to welcome ROSIES Foundation and rock out with you Saturday nights in September!
