"Star Wars" geeks, rev your engines.

The Richmond Symphony will present "Star Wars: A New Hope in Concert" featuring a screening of the complete film that started it all, with the Oscar-winning composer John Williams' musical score performed live at Altria Theatre.

The concert will be led by acclaimed conductor Keitaro Harada and will be held on May, 4, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets, which range from $40 to $80, will go on sale to the public on Friday, Dec. 7.

And yeah, this one will probably sellout (if a gazillion dollars of movie business over 40 years is any indication).

The Star Wars: Film Concert Series is produced under license by Disney Concerts in association with 20th Century Fox and Warner/Chappell Music.

Oh yeah, and there's nothing like hearing Luke whine like an angsty teen in a large crowd of moviegoers.
