Donny And Marie Osmond Rent Entire Theatre To Watch New Star Wars Flick

The force will be with Donny & Marie Osmond in Texas on Friday. They’ve rented out an entire cinema in Gainesville so they can watch the new Star Wars movie with fans.

The siblings are giving away free tickets to their followers via social media and inviting them to join the Osmonds for the screening.

“I had this idea last week,” Donny tells People.com. “Marie and I are on our Christmas (tour) and we have a day off between travelling from Tulsa to Gainesville, so I thought, ‘What are the chances that we could get some private theatre owner to let us do a screening?'”

And when he found the perfect place, Osmond recalls, “I thought, ‘Let’s do a social media campaign, because so many people want tickets and they can’t get them’.”

The Osmonds have a special connection to the sci-fi blockbuster franchise as the original Star Wars cast members made their TV debut on their variety show, Donny and Marie, in 1977.

“Not many people know this, but in ’77 when Star Wars came out, George Lucas asked us to introduce these characters,” Donny adds. “Little did I know, these characters that I’m singing and dancing next to were going to change the world.”

“We were there in the beginning,” Marie laughs. “Who knew that it would me so incredibly huge?

“We’ve worked with amazing people over the years, from Frank Sinatra to Milton Berle to Bob Hope, but I’m very proud of standing next to C-3PO.”
