Many of the first local showings Thursday of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” already are sold-out, but you don’t need the Force to find the tickets still out there. Just use this guide.

Jason Sanchez, the manager of Cinema Cafe at Kemps River, said Wednesday that his theater is dedicating half of its screens to the film Thursday night and has “plenty” of tickets left, especially for the later viewings. There are still unclaimed seats at the 7:15 p.m. showing, he said.

City-wide ticket data is hard to come by and not yet final, but an online search Wednesday afternoon revealed similar stories at other area theaters. These are the showtimes you are looking for, with a line through shows that had already sold-out:
