    May the Fourth be with You!
    What would a Star Wars day be without a special announcement??

    solo-a-star-wars-story-uk-poster.jpg

    With the impending release of Solo: A Star Wars Story , we here at The Cantina thought it would be fun to celebrate by getting together for a hype-building viewing party.

    Please join us on Saturday, May 12th for a Cantina-wide viewing party of Rogue One and A New Hope. We will be starting at:
    ~9:00 am PST (GMT -8)
    ~12:00 pm EST (GMT -5)
    ~5:00 pm GMT
    ~6:00 pm CET (GMT +1)


    Some of you may have joined us for the pre-TLJ party when we watched TFA, and this will be similar in theme, but our powers are also growing...

    To increase the window of availability for everyone, we will be doing a double feature this time around.
    The schedule of events is as follows:

    12:00 pm EST - Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2hr 13min runtime)
    2:15 pm EST - Intermission (20 min)
    2:35 pm EST - Star Wars IV: A New Hope (2hr 5 min runtime)

    As before, we will again be throwing in some Cantina-based prizes, which Mr. Alamact will explain in this here post!

    We are also working on getting together some REAL prizes, so this is one event you don't want to miss!

    The viewing party will be hosted on the free chat app, Discord: https://discordapp.com/.

    Click the link below to join the party directly!

    https://discord.gg/WDTpVqY


    *All Cantina rules will also apply in the chat*

    A chat/instant message-style forum should provide for the best experience, as we expect several users to be posting simultaneously. Discord is very user friendly and is browser-based, which means no downloads necessary (unless you want to download the app to use on mobile). Please PM me with any questions or concerns!

    **Please note that we will not be providing an online stream of Rogue One or ANH, as that would be a violation of copyright laws. It is up to each of you individually to watch your own copy at home. We'll just all be watching at the same time.

    Also, feel free to join in on the fun even if you can't watch the movie along with us. And if you can't stay for the whole thing, no sweat! Hang out with us as much or as little as you are able, but please keep in mind that in order to be eligible for any prizes you must at some point take part in the discussion**

    Spread the word, we hope you are able to join us!

    i suspect people will have different versions across the map.
    that might just make it a little more interesting! XD

    yeah, like i said, it's going to be a little messy for ANH, but also fun when we hit those moments.
    i don't have a specialized edition myself, so i have no choice but to watch Harmy's.
    and i'm okay with that.

    i'm sure other people will be watching the specialized editions! : D
    and we should all be good for R1.

    We'll all be pretty close. We can't get it perfect, so we'll have to settle for almost perfect!

    I have the Special Edition blu-rays, as I suspect most with blu-ray probably do... so that's what I'm watching!

    I'll be watching the Blu-ray special edition as well, though if I wanted to get really crazy with it I could put on the 1997 special edition. :p

    I don't think there's ever been a moment where I haven't had a VCR plugged in and ready to go. :p

    I will definitely join for ANH. I won't be able to see Rogue One, as it was left at home.

    This goes for anyone, not just you, but...

    Feel free to join in just for the SW talk, even if you are unable to watch either or both movies!

    Count me in! :D

    Gonna watch R1 in 3D, but which ANH? (I have the 1997 VHS, but still need to pick up a scart-to-HDMI-converter for my VCR...) I can watch either:
    1 - the 2004/2006 DVD enhanced version
    2 - the 2004/2006 DVD remastered original 1977 cinematic version :)
    3 - the 2011 Blu-Ray edition...

    Choices, choices... :rolleyes:

    Any suggestions?
