If you remember the opening of “Star Wars” and especially the cheesy science fiction knock-offs George Lucas’ classic inspired 40 years ago, you’re going to love “Space Station 76,” a campy, character-driven parody of those early melodramatic space operas. The film by Jack Plotnik, includes some of our favorite stars including Liv Tyler, Jerry O’Connell and that hunky gay daddy, Matt Bomer (“Magic Mike,” “White Collar”). Get prepared for a blast to the past where personalities and asteroids collide. Check local listings for theaters and show times.
