Not on opening day, but that week.
Yeah, not there for the opening.............but went after the initial rush was over..........I would have been 15.
I saw it, opening weekend with my Dad. Just watched it for the umpteenth time Friday.
Yes. I was 11 or 12. Saw it in my hometown of Buffalo NY. It’s the only movie I’ve ever been to where at the end the whole theater stood up and gave the movie a standing ovation
I was three, so no.
But I did see ET when it came out.....
Saw it, loved it.
I got to see it when it arrived in my local area.
Anyone else feeling old?
I played it for 26 weeks when I was a theater manager. Longest running movie in our city. In February before it opened we were told of the booking. Everyone groaned. Science fiction just didn't do all that well back then. Lucas was so broke and worried it wouldn't do well we got it for a song. Boy were we wrong!
And 6 or so other times in the following weeks.
Yes! I was there. Saw it many times after too.
Yep.... was in line for three hours. My older brother still reminds me of it. I was ten, was completely blown
I still haven't seen ET. Not even once.
This may sound weird but I have never seen a Star Wars movie or tv show. I have heard "Luke I am your father" but I have no clue what it means.
Yes I did, along with one of my sisters and her friend. I talked them into going and they reluctantly agreed and told me if they didn't like it, it was going to be all my fault. We loved it~
As others, not opening night but a week or so later.
A story about the second movie, Empire Strikes Back.... I was in high school and went to see it the second day. Standing in line were two kids that had apparently seen it the first and coming back for a second showing. I'll never forget one saying in a loud voice "yea, and when Darth Vader said he was Luke's father....."
I wanted to strangle the little kid. I'm still scarred from the spoiler.
Went the first week. Took this hawt chick I worked with...
...who is now Mrs. Pistol.
ETA : I saw the preview months before and thought it looked interesting.
I kick myself for not buying $10 K of 20th Century Fox stock after the preview (not that I had $ 10K, which was about 22% more than my annual salary).
The stock price doubled three weeks after Star Wars opened. Not just ticket sales, don’t forget “merchandising”.
Yep, I was 13. I don’t think I saw it right when it opened, but I saw it shortly after.
