Long before roly-poly android BB-8 and Adam Driver’s super-square torso, there was Star Wars: A New Hope — the remarkable journey that sparked a worldwide fascination with a galaxy far, far away.

The first film in the beloved franchise introduces us to a remarkable cast of characters, all of whom search for meaning as they confront their own struggles with light and dark. Perhaps one of the most integral characters in the film is one that is not seen but heard. The iconic Oscar-winning score by John Williams will be performed by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra in time with a screening of the timeless film.



Star Wars: A New Hope scored by DSO will screen at 8 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 28 and Saturday, Sept. 29 and 3 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 30 at the Detroit Symphony Orchestra; 3711 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-576-5111; dso.org; Tickets start at $50.
