When you’re ready for your trip to the dark side, the DFS has a special treat: the infamous 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special. This cheap and sleazy cash-in features such atrocities as Bea Arthur singing and a squicky suggestion of Wookiee-on-human sexy times, proving that long before the prequels, Star Wars was already shitting all over its own legacy. “I kind of consider it a rite of passage,” Quiroz says. “You can’t really consider yourself a Star Wars fan until you’ve seen it.”
See 5-25-77 tonight at 7 p.m., and the Holiday Special at 9 p.m. on Saturday night, at the Sie FilmCenter, 2510 East Colfax Avenue. Tickets for 5-25-77 are $12, or $10 for DFS members; Holiday Special tickets are $10, or $7 for DFS members. For tickets and information, visit denverfilm.org.
