The hottest ticket in Seattle tonight might be cozying up to C-3PO and Lando Calrissian — or at least the actors who played them in the original iconic Star Wars films — tonight at the EMP Museum.
Anthony Daniels and Billy Dee Williams will appear at the opening night party for the new Rebel, Jedi, Princess, Queen: Star Wars and the Power of the Costume exhibit, which officially opens tomorrow to the general public. The event starts at 7 p.m., tickets are $30 for youth, $50 for EMP members and $60 for other attendees.
Additionally, there will be some fun “spotlight talks” tonight with the Academy Award nominee and costume designer Aggie Guerard Rodgers (Return of the Jedi) and author Brandon Alinger (Star Wars Costumes: The Original Trilogy).
Music by DJ Vox Mod and live performances by D20 Brass Band and Passenger String Quartet will provide the jams, and there will be plenty of photo ops, games, trivia, drink specials and other cool stuff.
So don your favorite Star Wars‘ inspired costume and get out there! Get a sneak peek at the whole exhibit with our very own Frank Catalano’s review from last night.
