Forty-two years. Nine films. One epic event. Be among the first to see the newest and final film of the Star Wars saga! Join the Fleet Science Center on Thursday, December 19, for an exclusive private screening of Star Wars: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER.

First, celebrate with a pre-screening party at the Fleet, where you can meet some of your favorite droids (built by San Diego’s very own DroidBuilders) and hang with friends. Enjoy delicious beverages (two are on us!) and delicious samples from Lou & Mickey's, Water Grill, Panama 66, Soda & Swine, Cloak & Petal and Barleymash included with your ticket. Find out whether the science in the Star Wars universe could actually work during a “Science of Star Wars” talk by Dr. Lisa Will and Professor Shane Haggard. Watch your favorite characters come to life through a live painting demonstration by local artist Daniel Jaimes. Learn how to wield a lightsaber correctly during battle training with the Underground Lightsaber Fighters. Come in costume for a chance to win fabulous prizes! Take your costume for a spin on our skating rink, find out which character can go down a slide the fastest in our Pause|Play exhibition and enjoy additional science activities. By 9:45 p.m. you’ll be riding in style to the film in our private motorcoaches. We’ll take you right to the AMC Mission Valley IMAX® theater for this very special screening.
