Alamo Drafthouse honors Carrie Fisher with lightsaber vigil

The world continues to mourn the loss of Carrie Fisher and the Alamo Drafthouse paid tribute to the Star Wars actress in Austin.

To honor Fisher's legacy, a large crowd gathered for a lightsaber vigil at Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar.  The event was called "There Has Been a Disturbance in The Force" and those attending dressed up as their favorite Star Wars characters and brought light sabers, glow sticks and flashlights.

It was all so that fans could say thank you to the woman many of them said inspired them on and off the screen.
