About This Event

The infamous “Star Wars Holiday Special” was created for CBS and aired only once on November 17, 1978. Watch the documentary, complete with clips and commentary from stars who were there and those who really wanted to be!

George Lucas, who completely disowned the production, reportedly has said, “If I had the time and a sledgehammer, I would track down every copy of that show and smash it.” Just how on earth did this thing ever see the light of day?

To answer that question, as Director/Producer/Writer, Steven Kozak shows in this fascinating and often hilarious inside look into the making of the Special, you have to understand the cultural moment in which it appeared—"a long, long time ago…” Kozak will share with Spokane even more behind the scenes stories that DIDN’T make it into the documentary. You don’t want to miss it!

Film Screening will be followed a short intermission and Q&A session.
