"Star Wars" marathon coming to El Capitan

Star Wars Rise of the Skywalker trailer 3You are probably not asking yourself why the words Star Wars are enclosed in quotation marks in this article's title, but we will explain anyway: the nine-film marathon coming to Disney's El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood will include only films with "Star Wars" in their titles - in other words, no Rogue One or Solo. Instead, all three Star Wars trilogies will screen: the original, the prequels, and the sequels - including the first public screening of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in Los Angeles. Hosted by Nerdist, the event starts on Wednesday, December 18 at 7pm with Star Wars, Episode One: The Phantom Menace and culminates with new film on Thursday, December 19th at 8:55pm.

Besides the opportunity to be among the first audience to see the newest Star Wars film, all marathon viewers will receive souvenir credential, meals & snacks, a light-up Millennium Falcon popcorn container (1 refill), three 20oz bottled drinks, a comfort kit, a souvenir blanket, an exclusive art poster, and more surprises.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will be officially released on Friday, December 20 in theatres nationwide, including an engagement at El Capitan through January 19.

El Capitan Theatre is located at 6838 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood. For more information on the marathon, click here. For information on the month-long engagement of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker , click here.
