In a movie theater not far from here, the seventh episode of the iconic Star Wars franchise will premiere with The Force Awakens. Because this is the biggest thing happening in our cinematic galaxy, the opening is being greeted with hubbub worthy of an Ewok party.
The festivities start at 7 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 17, with the Star Wars Force Awakens Premiere Charity Bash at Edwards 21. There are Force screenings at 7 p.m. and 11 p.m., with music, raffles, food and drink (booze with ID), and a costume contest 9-11 p.m. As of press time, there were around 300 tickets available with flex to 620, depending on demand. Tickets are $20, plus fees, with a portion of proceeds benefiting to the Boise Rescue Mission.
