About this Performance

Calling all Jedis to a most impressive evening at the Hollywood Bowl. Rediscover the magic of the second film in the saga as it unfolds on a screen the size of an AT-AT while the Los Angeles Philharmonic performs the classic score live. There’s never been an event like this in L.A., and there’s never been a better excuse to revisit the origins of one of the greatest stories ever told.

Come early to the August 79, or 10 performance, and get a free lightsaber!
One per person. While supplies last. Limited quantities available.

All Jedi are encouraged to show up in costume.
Please refrain from using masks and/or costumed guns as part of your costume, as these will not be permitted inside the venue.


In an effort to ease cut-through traffic by mobile app and ride share users, the Hollywood Bowl in cooperation with LA City Officials, will implement pilot street closures taking place on July 18th, August 5th, August 9th, and September 10th. Closures will be in place between 5pm and 10pm.

Closures include:

  • Camrose at Highland

  • Milner at Highland


During the full closure of these two segments, all traffic (excluding emergency vehicles) will be restricted in/out of Camrose and Milner at Highland, including residents. Area residents will need to enter their neighborhoods from Franklin Ave (or other entry points). Several alternative entry points into the neighborhoods will be staffed, and signage will be posted indicating "NO ACCESS TO HIGHLAND AVE, LOCAL ACCESS ONLY". Utilizing Resident Placards will ease in passing through alternative access points.
