Tonight, The Alamo Drafthouse Will Honor Carrie Fisher With A Lightsaber Vigil

The Force is with her.

Heads up, Austin:

Fearless princess. Wry, quick-witted scribe. Hollywood icon. Yesterday, we lost our beloved Carrie Fisher, and to honor her immense legacy, we're inviting Jedis of all ages to join us for a special lightsaber vigil. 

Join us outside Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar on Wednesday, December 28th at 6:30 pm. Attendees are encouraged to dress up as their favorite STAR WARS characters, bring along as many lightsabers as you own, and invite your fellow Wookies, Bounty Hunters, Ewoks, and Stormtroopers.

No lightsaber? Flashlights and glow sticks are also encouraged as we attempt to brighten the sky and say thank you to a woman who inspired us on and off the screen.

That's right: if you're in the Austin area tonight, you can come on down to the South Lamar Drafthouse and pay your respects to the late Ms. Fisher, surrounded by fellow Star Wars fans. 

This is surely a tough time for all of us, but maybe together we can turn our mourning into something more befitting this iconic actress: a celebration of what she gave to the world, and what Star Wars has given to all of us.

Get directions to the South Lamar Drafthouse here. We'll see you down there.
