Star Wars: 30th Anniversary!
Today is very significant because it is the 30th anniversary of the premiere of the first Star Wars film. Unlike today where films get immediate wide distribution, I wasn't able to see Star Wars until a month after release. I saw Star Wars for the first time on June 28, 1977 at the theaters at the Lehigh Valley Mall in Whitehall, Pa. I was a 20 year old college kid on summer break. I still have my original "program" that I bought in the lobby! Happy 30th Anniversary Star Wars. Star Wars is one of just a handful of movies (including Eraserhead and 2001: A Space Odyssey) that truly changed my life. I was not the same after seeing this film!
