On opening weekend of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Eastern Shore Premiere 14 was taken over by the Empire.  Members of the 501st, a Star Wars fan club that dresses the part, came to the theater to interact and entertain Star Wars fans both young and old. The theater showcased a large model of an Imperial Tie Fighter that was hand built by one of the theater's patrons. The Star Wars opening was a huge success in part due to the great job of the 501st and their guest interactions.
