Take part in a light saber battle this weekend at City Tap House

Josh Middleton

Star Wars: The Last Jedi has been in theaters for nearly a week now, and critics are raving. Time Out cinema guru Joshua Rothkopf even says it “dazzles like the sci-fi saga hasn’t in decades.”

To celebrate—and to give fans a chance to nerd out in a big way—City Tap House in University City and Victory Brewing Company are teaming up for a costume party on Saturday, December 23, that includes a screening of the film and a host of pre-show Star Wars-related activities.

Show up at 5:30pm to take part in a light saber demo from Drexel University’s Dragon Jedi and to test out your newfound skills in a battle with other guests. Darth Vader will be onsite for photos, and there will be a costume contest with prizes being doled out to those wearing the best Star Wars garb. You could win a prize pack from Victory Brewing, a $50 gift card to City Tap House or two additional complimentary tickets to the movie. At 7:30, attendees will head across the street to Cinemark University City Penn 6 to catch the film.

The whole thing—including your movie ticket—only costs $20 per person. That also gets you two Victory Brewing Co. beers. Tickets can be purchased here.
