“I am a Jedi, like my father before me...” 

In the spectacular climactic sixth episode of the Star Wars saga, Darth Vader readies the second Death Star to unleash the final blow to the Rebel Alliance. Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) joins his droid allies R2-D2 and C-3PO, along with Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), to free his comrade Han Solo (Harrison Ford), imprisoned by the vile crime lord, Jabba the Hutt. Reunited, the Rebels race to the moon of the planet Endor where they launch a desperate attack upon the entire Imperial Fleet.

But the ultimate battle is between father and son, as Luke faces Darth Vader one last time, for the fate of the galaxy hangs in the balance.

The Mann is thrilled to present Star Wars: Return of the Jedi live in concert on August 11. The Philly POPS will play Oscar®-winning composer John Williams' iconic musical score live as the film is projected on three giant screens. 

Since the release of the first Star Wars movie over 40 years ago, the Star Wars saga has had a seismic impact on both cinema and culture, inspiring audiences around the world with its mythic storytelling, captivating characters, groundbreaking special effects, and iconic musical scores composed by Williams. The Mann presented Star Wars: A New Hope™ in 2018, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back™ in 2019, and now, in 2022, fans will be able to experience the scope and grandeur of the beloved third film in the original trilogy, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi with The Philly POPS.

Crescendo will be open for this performance, and guests are invited to bring picnics.
