If you’re a veteran Star Wars fan, you’ve seen the original films in a multitude of formats: on the big screen, on the small screen, letterboxed, pan & scan, original cut, special editions, probably even a LEGO version at some point. So the opportunity to see the original Star Wars in a new way is a pretty big deal. This week, the Orlando Philharmonic plays Episode IV: A New Hope on a big screen in the Dr. Phillips Center’s Walt Disney Theater, minus the soundtrack. Instead, the orchestra performs John Williams’ iconic score (including, we hope, the Twentieth Century Fox fanfare) live. It should give new life to the film, currently celebrating its 40th anniversary. But if this is your first time seeing the film, remember: No matter what you see on the screen, Han. Shot. First.

7:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 8 | Walt Disney Theater, Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, 445 S. Magnolia Ave. | 844-513-2014 | drphillipscenter.org | $49-$99
