The New York Philharmonic presents the Star Wars Film Concert Series, featuring screenings of four complete films from the saga — A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, and The Force Awakens — with composer John Williams’s musical scores performed live to film. The concerts will be led by acclaimed conductor David Newman.

The New York Philharmonic has partnered with New York Comic Con to feature the Star Wars Film Concert Series presentation of Return of the Jedi (October 4­–5) and The Force Awakens (October 6–7) as part of NYCC Presents — a series of concerts, live podcasts, comedy acts, and more that brings New York Comic Con to various venues throughout New York City.

All concert attendees are invited to take part in the Philharmonic’s “Star Wars Film Concert Series Fan Zone” at David Geffen Hall, before and after each performance as well as during intermission. Ticket holders will have the opportunity to meet R2D2, Stormtroopers, and other Star Wars characters from costumed fan groups; in addition, they can take photos in an event-themed photo booth. A commemorative program and other merchandise will be available for purchase and a specialty cocktail called the Cantina Margarita (and its non-alcoholic version) will also be available. Those planning to attend are encouraged to come in costume and share their Fan Zone experience on social media using #nypstarwars.
