Star Wars fanatics dust off your lightsaber, point your minivan in the direction of the UTEP campus and set it to hyperspeed because this weekend's free Movies on the Lawn is a Star Wars movie that's actually good.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the 7th film in the series (or is it the 4th? I'm so confused!) will be screened on an 18-foot inflatable screen this Friday, September 23 at UTEP's Centennial Plaza.

I don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it yet, but I always lose it when it gets to the part where Chewbacca is finally reunited with his long-lost twin; CBS4's Lou Romano.

Yes, watch it you must. And you don’t have to be a UTEP student or a Jedi Knight to attend; Movies on the Lawn is free and open to the public.

Lawn chairs and blankets are allowed; alcohol, glass, and pets (including Wookies), are not. Free parking is available in the UTEP Sun Bowl Parking garage. Millennium Falcons and other spacecraft in the upper level only.

The movie starts at approximately 7:00 p.m., although the force is strong in this one so I'd get there at least a half hour early if I were you. If you need more details or have any questions, hit up the UTEP Office of Student Life Facebook page.

Until then, live long and prosper. No, wait, wrong movie franchise reference. Sorry about that Padawan. Nanoo, nanoo!
