Star Wars fan day

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:19 pm on 29 April 2014

While May the 4th may not be a date that has a great deal of significance for many of us, it has been appropriated by legions of Star Wars fans as an international day of appreciation for the Star Wars movies, the Star Wars way of life, in actual fact. Why May the 4th? Well, because it works very well with a famous line from the movies... 'May the forth be with you'. This weekend, hundreds of thousands of Star Wars fans around the world will be watching the films, including here in New Zealand where a marathon screening of all the films is taking place in several of our main centres.
