The Force – powered by Star Wars fans at Muckle LLP law firm – has been awakened.
In an epic battle of good versus the dark side, lightsabers crossed at the commercial law firm to secure a Star Wars screening for more than 250 guests at the Tyneside Cinema in Newcastle.
The firm, which is well-known across the North East for being a force for good in the community, arranged the screening for clients and their families.
It’s been 32 years since the release of Episode VI and Muckle’s diehard Star Wars fans couldn’t wait until Saturday to make the jump to lightspeed; so to get everyone in the intergalactic spirit of things and liven up an otherwise ordinary Friday afternoon at Time Central, some familiar Star Wars faces joined Muckle’s lawyers at work the day beforehand. Among the characters roaming around Muckle’s offices were Darth Vader, Princess Leia, a Storm Trooper and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Which Muckle people are in the Imperial costumes remains a secret as closely guarded as the script for Episode VIII…
The private screening for guests of Muckle in a galaxy (not too) far, far away, will take place on Saturday at the Tyneside Cinema in Pilgrim Street.
Louise Bennett from Tyneside Cinema said: “We’ve worked with Muckle LLP for many years and when they approached us about this screening, saying we were their only hope, we were more than happy to help out. It’ll be great to see everyone out in Force joining the Star Wars characters.”
Muckle’s business development director, Justin Barlow, added: “The Star Wars films are multi-generational so we knew this screening would be the perfect way of coming together with our clients’ families to celebrate at this time of year. We set this up over a year ago and we’ve had an amazing response. Everyone is so enthusiastic and excited about the release, so the unexpected visit caused quite a scene in the office.”
May the Force be with you!
