A church in Berlin has announced it will hold a special pre-Christmas service devoted to Star Wars.
Excitement is building in Germany ahead of the release of the franchise's latest installment, The Force Awakens, on Thursday. But the Zion Church, located in the capital's central Mitte district, is taking inspiration for its Sunday morning service from one of the classics - Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. Those attending the event will be shown scenes from the 1983 film, and there's also the promise of organ music inspired by the score, the local church district says on its website.
Berlin’s vibrant and seemingly never-ending nightlife — and its extremely open attitudes toward sexuality, music, fashion and drugs — provide an intoxicating alternative to the dreariness of bottle service, over-the-top machismo and dress codes, which epitomize North America’s cookie-cutter club culture.
