Jedi Knights and Sith Lords travelled across the galaxy of Narrabri to attend the midnight screening of Star Wars – The Rise of Skywalker.

The force was strong at The Crossing Theatre on Thursday, December 18, 2019 for the ninth movie in the Jedi saga since Star Wars – A New Hope was released in 1977.

Thirty-two years after the original movie, fans are still passionate about the saga and the midnight screening was no exception.

The Crossing Theatre opened its two cinemas for the event and saw around 130 people attend.

Founder of the Knights of the New Republic Rod Strong said the latest movie was a great addition to the franchise.

“I enjoyed it, I really thought it was great,” said Mr Strong.

“There were some interesting plot twists in there and loved some of the new characters.

“Little Babu-Frik, I thought he was a neat, little character.”

Mr Strong organised a costume dress up with members of his group.

The event was the Knights of the New Republic’s third since it was established on International Star Wars day, May 4, 2019.

Mr Strong said the Knights of the New Republic will be looking to attend more in 2020.

“The costume meetup was organised by the Facebook page I run,” said Mr Strong.

“It’s our third event – The sons of Obi-Wan was the first and we did a small charity event for the epilepsy foundation.

“And we’ve got much more planned for this year.

“There’s an event in Coonabarabran in May, where I will be conducting Jedi meditation sessions and there is an event in Moree in September which we have been asked to attended.”

Mr Strong will also be heading to the Gold Coast’s Supernova event which will be held in March this year.
