The original trilogy is heading back to theaters this summer. Entertainment Weekly reports that Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi will play back to back in select Alamo Drafthouse theaters in 20 cities this August.

The movies will (unfortunately) be shown in the 1997 re-release format, though, so that means Han won't shoot first here. Still! Tickets will go on sale on on May 4th, otherwise known as Star Wars Day. Fans looking for a primer on the world where this winter's Rogue One takes place will want to check out the screenings below:
