2019 Off-the-Wall Film Series:  Well (Multi)versed

Doors open: 8 pm • Program: 8:45 pm

The fate of the galaxy is at stake in Mel Brooks’ classic Star Wars parody. Reluctant hero Lone Starr (Bill Pullman) teams up with trusty sidekick Barf (John Candy), Princess Vespa (Daphne Zuniga), and robot Dot Matrix (Joan Rivers) to fight the ineptly evil forces of Dark Helmet (Rick Moranis). May the Schwartz be with them.
