Star Wars First Run

Did you see Star Wars Episode IV "A New Hope" In its original run?


I Think this would be 30 years ago.

Yep. We lived in Des Plaines at the time. I remember how packed the theater was. People were sitting in the asiles. And I was Empire and Jedi first run too. I really wasn't into the later editions.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

Another time when being old helps. Yep, it was cool.

How about Aliens? Or 2001?

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

My pops took all the neighborhood kids to see it on the opening day. And as soon as mom got home we went again that night.

I was a geek even back then and obviously I come from a family of geeks.
