Calling all Central Coast Star Wars fans -- a special feature is coming to Arroyo Grande this weekend.

The Central Coast Film Society is hosting the movie night Saturday at the Clark Center.

A New Hope, the fourth installment in the Star Wars franchise, will grace the screen more than 40 years after its original debut.

Guests are invited to dress up in full Star Wars garb for a night of fun both for fans and those seeing the flick for the first time.

"What's really special about it is when I was a kid, I only got to experience Star Wars on the VHS tapes, I never got to experience it in theaters for the first time," Daniel Lahr, the Central Coast Film Society's executive director, said. "Now I get to take my kids and this will be the first time they see it on the big screen and at such a great venue."

As a special treat, Star Wars expert and author Ken Napzok will impart his film knowledge on movie goers.

Napzok, who is an Arroyo Grande native, has nearly 40,000 Twitter followers who are fans of his podcast, The Napzok Files.

General admission tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for kids. Early admission is $15 and $35 for a VIP ticket, which includes a meet and greet with Napzok, who can answer all your Star Wars movie questions.

The show starts at 6 p.m. but doors open to VIP guests at 4:30 p.m.
