Some of the TORn IRC regulars – in conjunction with TORn Barlistaff – will be hosting a Star Wars original trilogy viewing party across this weekend – on Friday, Saturday and Sunday night (US time).

How does it work? Well, if you have a DVD copy of any of the Star Wars original trilogy films, wander along, copy in hand onto the server. Everyone will start the film at the same time, and we’ll all chat away. Simple!

And even if you don’t own the DVDs, you can still join in the madness – particularly if you know the films well.


On the TORn IRC server ( port 6667) in #moviechat.


  • On Friday night from 8pm EDT we’ll be watching Star Wars: A New Hope.
  • On Saturday night from 8pm EDT we’ll be watching The Empire Strikes Back.
  • On Sunday night from 8pm EDT we’ll be watching Return of the Jedi.


If you’ve never used IRC before, and need help to join, I suggest having a first crack at dropping in using our Jaca IRC Client. It’s dead simple.

Alternatively, install a dedicated chat program such as mIRC on your computer. To find out more about using mIRC to connect to TORn IRC server, check out these instructions.
