Rio Rancho Mayor Gregg Hull had an army of Jedis with him at the Dec. 17 midnight screening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Eleven of them to be exact – 10 young Jedis and a Jedi Master – all chosen from a Movie with the Mayor contest Hull organized looking for “incredible citizens” who have made a positive impact in the community. The winners accompanied Hull and his family to a private screening of the movie at Premiere Cinema.

The mayor added the theater was packed, the movie was true to the Star Wars form and everyone “had a blast.”
