Coventry Village Neighborhood in Cleveland Heights to Host 'Star Wars' Weekend in August


Last year, the latest Star Wars sequel shattered all kinds of box office records. To capitalize on the renewed interest in the franchise, the Coventry Village neighborhood in Cleveland Heights will screen the original, theatrical versions of Star Wars, Return of the Jedi and The Empire Strikes Back.

All movies will show at 9 p.m. in Coventry P.E.A.C.E. Park, which is located at the corner of Euclid Heights Boulevard and Coventry Road in Cleveland Heights. The schedule includes Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (Aug. 4), Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (Aug. 5) and Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (Aug. 6).

"We're excited to show these truly special movies as they're favorites of the young and old alike,” says Angela Hetrick, Executive Director of the Coventry Village Special Improvement District, in a press release. “Bring your family, friends and a blanket and join us for three memorable nights in August on the Coventry PE.A.C.E lawn.”
