Special Screenings

Star Wars: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. The critics raved about this one when it first came out, although frankly this was probably a case of expectations being so lowered after the first two prequels that anything without Jar Jar Binks would have seemed like a work of genius. This movie has some actual conflict, and the Emperor is actually creepy, making this easily the best of the prequels. But does it come within spitting distance of the original trilogy? Please. For all its flaws, even Return of the Jedi mops up the floor with this thing. This is an outdoor, evening screening, so bring some chairs and blankets. Newport Dunes Resort, 1131 Back Bay Dr., Newport Beach, (949) 729-DUNE. Sat., dusk. Free; parking, $10.
