"You must feel the Force around you..."


The battle for the galaxy intensifies in this thrilling fifth episode of the unfolding saga. As Imperial Forces launch an all-out attack on the Rebel Alliance, Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) flee to Cloud City where they are captured by Darth Vader. Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) journeys to the mysterious, marshy planet of Dagobah, where the wise Jedi Master Yoda teaches the young hero the ways of the Force.


Little does Luke know that all his Jedi training will be called upon so soon. A stunning revelation – and a seeming life-or-death duel with Darth Vader – await.


The Mann is thrilled to present Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back live in concert on July 26th. The Philadelphia Orchestra will play John Williams' iconic musical score live as the film is projected on three giant screens. 


Since the release of the first Star Wars movie over 40 years ago, the Star Wars saga has had a seismic impact on both cinema and culture, inspiring audiences around the world with its mythic storytelling, captivating characters, groundbreaking special effects and iconic musical scores composed by Williams. In 2018, the Mann presented Star Wars: A New Hope™, and now, in 2019, fans will be able to experience the scope and grandeur of the second film in the original trilogy, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back with The Philadelphia Orchestra.


AT THIS CONCERT: Trivia heads! The Philadelphia Film Society will be back in the picnic grove, this time for some Star Wars Quizzo! Come early and use the Force for your chance to win Film Society passes and more. Plus: Don't miss an exciting performance by the Capital City Jedi Knights at the top of the hill around 6:30PM.


We encourage you to celebrate your favorite movie characters at this performance, but please leave all masks, toy weapons (lightsabers, imitation grenades, etc.) and armor at home!


Tickets are on sale now via, (800) 982-2787, or the Mann Box Office.
