“This opportunity came up and we thought, ‘We are at the Drafthouse all the time anyway, we love Star Wars,” says Mallory Walker, one of the newlyweds. “It’s a way to do it that’s special for us.”

The newlyweds say they already have their honeymoon planned: a trip to Disneyland in California to check out the new “Star Wars” park.

The final installment of the Skywalker saga is in theaters everywhere Thursday night.
