"The Empire Strikes Back" will hit the Riverside next summer.

MSO to perform "The Empire Strikes Back" at the Riverside next summer

The resolution to "Avengers: Infinity War." "Toy Story 4." A new "Godzilla" movie. There's plenty of big blockbusters coming to the big screen next summer, but the most exciting one might be headed to the Riverside Theater.

This afternoon, the Riverside announced that it will screen "The Empire Strikes Back" – only one of the best sequels and one of the best movies, period, ever – complete with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra playing John Williams' iconic score live alongside the movie. The special performance-slash-screening will play three days: Friday, May 31 and Saturday, June 1 at 7:30 p.m., as well as a matinee show on Sunday, June 2 at 2:30 p.m.

Tickets for the shows go on sale beginning Friday, Oct. 26 at noon. For more information, visit The Pabst Theater's website. Be there – or be a stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf-herder.
