Our favourite is/was clearly the 4th one, released in 1977.
And we saw it in a full theater in San Franciso, sitting up in the balcony's
first row, because that is all that was left for us. We waited in line for at least
one hour, which we think isn't long compared to today, and how the geeks all
queued (waaay too early) for the new one, heh.
And when the Opening Scroll rolled up the screen, there was major cheering from the main floor!
Clearly a few of these peeps had seen it before. We think.
It sounded awesome and just
pushed up our adrenaline more, and the movie hadn't even started, yet!
Anyway, it was clearly The Star Wars Highlight for us, for all these years, and we never saw any
of the rest of them like that, again.
As for the new one, we'll be seeing it in a few weeks.
