Movies on Madison: Star Wars: The Last Jedi


The North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences at Whiteville and the Columbus County Arts Council have partnered to bring you “Movies on Madison: Summer Film Series.” This month’s film, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” will be shown on Friday, July 20 at dusk. The Last Jedi begins immediately after the events of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” which is set thirty years after the conclusion of the original Star Wars trilogy. Our movie continues the story of Rey and her discovery of the exiled Jedi Master Luke Skywalker, and the story of the war between General Leia Organa's Resistance and the First Order. “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is a sprawling, incident- and character-packed action flick that guides the series into unfamiliar territory. It’s everything a fan could want from a Star Wars film and then some.


Dress in your favorite Star Wars costume and bring a blanket or chair. Museum lawn opens at 6:00 p.m.; movie starts at dusk. The free, 152-minute film is rated PG-13. This is a family-friendly event: no pets, coolers, alcohol or smoking permitted. Refreshments will be available for purchase. To extend the learning experience of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” please visit our education table before the film.
