A tauntaun from the icy planet Hoth mingled with lightsabre-wielding Jedi Knights in Nelson as fans got into the spirit of a Star Wars movie marathon.
Nelson's State Cinema screened all six Star Wars movies over the weekend, as part of a global May The 4th Be With You fan event.
Among those who turned up in costume for The Empire Strikes Back yesterday was Liz Watson, who spent six hours fashioning her outfit, based on Luke Skywalker riding the dinosaur-like tauntaun.
She used a variety of materials, including a blanket, bicycle tyre tubes, tape and buttons.
Another standout costume was that of bounty hunter Boba Fett, and there was a sprinkling of Princess Leias and Darth Vaders.
An impromptu lightsabre battle broke out between the young Jedi.
The movies were shown in chronological order, starting with Episode 1: The Phantom Menace on Saturday, and ending with Episode VI: Return of the Jedi yesterday.
State Cinema was one of only eight cinemas throughout the country to screen the Star Wars marathon. Its major refurbishment in 2012 was a major reason for its inclusion.
Does Nelson deserve to be classed as a city?Related story: (See story)
