Irvin Kershner
Moderate violence, mild threat

Following an epic AT-AT Empire attack on the icy plains of the planet Hoth, Jedi-in-training Luke Skywalker retreats to the swampy refuge of the planet Dagobah to learn the ways of the force under the teachings of the old, reclusive Jedi master Yoda. Meanwhile, Han Solo and Princess Leia face off against the might of the Galactic Empire, as the resolute Darth Vader – under the watchful eye of the terrifying Emperor (Ian McDiarmid) – sends bounty hunter Boba Fett on the tail of the Millennium Falcon…

Widely held up as the greatest Star Wars adventure of them all, Irvin Kershner’s 1980 sequel takes the scale and imagination of the expansive universe to thrilling new heights.

A mature, atmospheric follow-up to the events of A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back marks the saga’s introduction of fan favourites Lando Calrissian and Boba Fett – and leaves the series on a monumental, game-changing operatic cliffhanger…

Don’t miss this unmissable chance to experience perhaps the greatest sci-fi saga of all at Tyneside Cinema this summer.
