Experience Star Wars On Big Outdoor Movie Screen In Rockford
On a big outdoor movie screen in Rockford, experience Star Wars.
Love For Star Wars
If I had to pick my favorite movie of all time, it has to be the Star Wars series. Especially, the original trilogy. I believe it earned that title because I loved it as a kid and still dig it all these years later as an adult.
I have seen all the movies so many times that I can not even count. I watched them in the theater, at the drive-in, on TV, by VHS tape, DVD, Blu-Ray, and if I remember correctly one of my friends had it on Laserdisc.
Growing up I owned the toys, posters, sheets, curtains, books, shirts, trading cards, and just about anything else they put the logo on. I was obsessed.
Young Fans Missed Out
No matter the format, you can never go wrong watching Star Wars. I do feel bad for young fans because they never got to witness it in a theater or even better at the drive-in. There is no better way to experience it than on the big screen including outdoors.
Here Is Their Chance
The outdoor movie theater made a huge comeback in 2020. It has given families the opportunity to enjoy this old-school fun together. Even though we have a few official drive-ins not far from Rockford, sometimes when you have young ones it is nice to stay local.
Pop-up outside films have been successful in our community. The Rockford Park District hosted a popular one in town at Lockwood Park called Flix on the Farm. Their next event will feature Star Wars on the big screen. What a great chance for local fans.
Check out the original trailer.
