In these 40 years since the Wars debuted, projection technology has changed and allowed for highest quality picture and sound, in addition to 3D elements. According to Fandango’s page for The Last Jedi, the sequel will be screened in a 35mm format and an IMAX format.
Tickets are not on sale for The Last Jedi, but Fandango allows fans to select viewing the film in 35mm, Digital 3D, IMAX and IMAX 3D. Theaters screen the movie in a digital format that is comparable to a 35mm presentation without an actual film.
The releases mirror presentations of The Force Awakens with the movie having 70mm options in few regions. One 35mm of The Force Awakens was screened to accommodate the Vista theater in Los Angeles.
No announcement has come yet regarding an official date when tickets for the movie will be going on sale, but different clues point towards the fact that tickets will be made available on October 9.
A clue came from Mark Hamill who had responded to a fan who had asked him when fans may see a trailer with the actor saying the fan must tune in to Monday Night Football on October 9 for “no reason in particular.” The actor deleted the tweet and said that he was joking about the trailer.
If a new trailer is to drop on October 9, and The Last Jedi is to follow patterns set by The Force Awakens, tickets will go on sale the same night trailer releases.
The Last Jedi premieres in theaters December 15.
