Rogue One
Star Wars
Limited Edition
Death Star

Ask your server for details!

When I went to see Rogue One on opening night my server handed me this advertisement.  It is on a thick paper with a solid white back.  Of course I bought the package and asked to keep the paper ad.  Then I added a stamp to the back and mailed it to myself!  I was at a Cineplex theater where you eat at the movies.  There are big leather seats that recline.  It is the ONLY way to watch a Star Wars movie on opening night.  ;-)
