“Obi-Wan Kenobi – Getting Theatrical Screening on June 22 at Cineplex”
Star Wars fans will be able to watch one of the latest stories from a galaxy far, far away on the big screen, but only if they can sit in a theatre chair for more than two hours. On June 22, some Cineplex locations will show the whole film Obi-Wan Kenobi. The five-and-a-half-hour event will include the full first season of Disney+ as well as a live Q&A session.
Obi-Wan Kenob: Release date
Star Wars fans will be able to watch one of the latest stories from a galaxy far, far away on the big screen, but only if they can sit in a theatre chair for more than two hours. On June 22, some Cineplex locations will show the whole film Obi-Wan Kenob
Because Obi-final Wan’s episode premieres on June 22, the entire programme will be available to watch at home while fans flock to theatres for the special experience. Because the format of the entire programme is one big plot, it may function well as a supersized cinema presentation, though it will surely require some perseverance to enjoy well.
The marathon’s announcement appears to be premature, as no official social media accounts have mentioned the event. It’s also unclear whether fans from countries other than Cineplex’s native country of Canada will be permitted to participate. Fans in the United States and other parts of the world should keep an eye out for showtimes when watching Star Wars social media to discover if their local movie theatre chains are taking part.
Disney, particularly its franchise players, is no stranger to theatrical marathons. Marvel often hosts marathons of MCU flicks for fans to watch before the release of the latest superhero movie. Disney didn’t do this when new Star Wars films debuted a few years ago, but this could be a test to see if sci-fi fans are as eager to see their beloved stories on the big screen as superhero fans are.
