The Greater Cleveland Film Commission has announced that it has dibs on the first public screening of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Set to take place at 7 p.m. on Thursday, December 17, at Cinemark At Valley View, the screening serves as a GCFC benefit.

"Star Wars is a cultural touchstone that resonates with people across a multitude of generations and backgrounds," said GCFC President Ivan Schwarz. "These movies have inspired so many to pursue their dreams of working in the entertainment industry, and we work every day to grow Northeast Ohio's media production industry so that they can pursue those dreams right here, in the city that they love. We hope that this special event will serve as thanks for the community's continued support of our efforts."



A donation of $50 includes general admission to the exclusive screening on a first come, first seated basis while a $100 donation gets you a seat in the VIP section. In addition, you’ll get a commemorative ticket, an exclusive T-shirt designed by GCFC just for this event and the opportunity to win amazing prizes (like a badass official Force FX light saber!). Tickets can be purchased through GCFC's fundraising website.
