Let’s just call it Millennium Falcon Park.

The Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events and Millennium Park Foundation announced today that the Summer Film Series has added a free screening of “Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope,” at 6:30 p.m Aug. 21.

The screening will feature the director’s cut of the 1977 blockbuster film, which stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Alec Guinness, Peter Mayhew and Anthony Daniels, among others.

For those unacquainted with a galaxy far, far away, the film tells the story of Luke Skywalker and his pals Obi-Wan Kenobi, Han Solo, Princess Leia, R2-D2, C-3PO and Chewbacca as they battle the evil Darth Vader to save the universe.

Pavilion seating is first-come, first-served. Lawn seating available. The park is located on Michigan Ave. at Randolph. Visit
