INDIANAPOLIS -- No doubt you'll be one of the millions of people who see Star Wars: The Force Awakens on opening weekend, but if you buy your tickets for a certain Indianapolis IMAX theater, you'll be in for a unique showing.

The Indiana State Museum is home to one of the 15 screens in the entire world where you'll be able to see the new film exactly as it was shot, in the highest quality. 

The ISM IMAX screen is designed differently than other IMAX theaters, projecting film instead of digital pictures. This enhances the image resolution to see every inch and speck of the film that was meant for your eyes to grace in 70mm film.

If you're looking for tickets for opening weekend to this high-quality viewing, may the force be with you, because with the closest destination home to a similar theater more than 3 hours away, the ewoks and jawas of the Midwest will be flocking to the museum, and at last check, they were sold out through Sunday.

But it may be worth the wait, so long as you stay off social media, the Internet and don't go to work for others to spoil the film for you.
