If you have been trying to think of a way to see “Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens” before it begins screenings on Dec. 17, Air France is your answer. All you need is about $2,000.

The airline is having a special promotion on Dec. 15. Anyone who takes a flight from San Francisco, Los Angeles or or New York to Paris will be given a complimentary ride from the Charles De Gaulle airport to a theater in Tremblay.

Your airline ticket gets you into a screening at either 12:45 or 3:30 p.m. (Paris time) to see the movie. The rest of the trip will be on your own.

No word on whether or not there will be free popcorn.
