Money raised will go towards building new cinema facilities in hospitals in London.

Film charity MediCinema is holding a Star Wars charity dinner & quiz at London’s Hilton Park Lane Hotel on February 2, to coincide with the release of Episode 1 -The Phantom Menace in 3D.

All proceeds will go to MediCinema charity which installs state-of-the-art cinemas in hospitals for patients and families. The plan is to build new facilities in three hospitals in London in 2012.

A selection of Star Wars loving celebrities will form the top table and guests will take them on to compete to win the title of MediCinema Star Wars Quiz champions.

Patrons of MediCinema include Ewan McGregor who starred as the young Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Stars Wars prequel trilogy and Nick Frost and Simon Pegg who are both avid Star Wars fans.

‘We are enormously excited about the potential of this event being a great platform for the MediCinema charity and want to grow this into a signature, annual event. The cult and history of Star Wars and its community provide a real opportunity for the world of film to have a positive, significant impact in the world of charity,” said MediCinema’s chief executive Stephen Moore.
