30 years ago, huh? I didn’t go on the opening day either, but went maybe about a week later since everyone was talkiing about it. I was 10 and went with my friend Nancy who was 13. We had to wait in a long, long line just to get tickets and then wait a long time to make sure we got good seats. That was the first time I had ever had that experience.
I remember loving it because it was so different, exciting and real. I came home and raved about it my family, then went and saw it again the next day with my mom and sister.
I remember some of my friends had cable tv, HBO, which was called HoBo then. We were sure that Star Wars was such an amazing movie that it would never end up on TV, even HoBo.
