I actually, according to my mother, was in the theater at 2 when the first movie came out in 1977. However, since I don't remember that I am going to go with Empire Strikes Back in 1980. I have a vague recollection of being scared of Darth Vader and sharing a seat with my brother, who was 8.

I vividly remember Return of the Jedi and being too excited to sit still...I wanted to be Luke and dress in black and would wander around with my blanket over my head like a cloak for long periods of time.

Bad memory. I was 8 when I first watched it. back in 2002. It was episode 4 I believe. I was amazed by all of it. Especially the lightsabers. If I recall correctly, me and my brother got candy and stayed up.

My favorite part of the ENTIRE VHS set.
Yeah, even the DVD release which included the Original Trilogy on a 2nd disc, while I love it, it was a **** YOU from Lucas. It's not digitally remastered or anything like that VHS version was. It's truly and completely the ORIGINAL 1977, 1983, and 1986 releases. Star Was IV doesn't even say "A New Hope" as that was added a few years later. Furthermore, it is played in a small box in the center of the screen way smaller than your actual TV (at least my 40" HDTV does this). Xbox 360 can override that setting by selecting "Stretch" (which then makes it all grainy and crap on my HDTV), but I've not found a way to make Windows Media Player do it.

He easily could have put that THX remastered version from the VHS on the disc, but he didn't because he didn't want to release them to us in the first place, so I very much believe that he did so under duress of sorts and so it's unremastered and such as a "**** YOU, if you don't like my Special Edition better, here's your crappy old original!"

Meant to post these links yesterday, but I got sidetracked. This is the vinyl picturedisk of the soundtrack from Ep. IV.

Since you are a younger SW fan, I wanted to ask... ROTJ is your favorite episode, so do you prefer the version where the ending was changed (young Anakin instead of the original)?

1977, can't remember the exact date it finally came to the small town where we lived at the time. i was 5 and proceeded to watch the movie every weekend until it was no longer shown there (if i remember correctly they showed it every Saturday for about 6-7 months) it was the most amazing thing i had seen at the time. some time before Empire came out, they put it on again and we saw it a ton more times. i lost count around the 120th time but my parents or grandparents would take me almost every weekend. i remember when Han shot first and didn't care, the original was amazing!

I think it was May/June of 1977. I took my girlfriend to a downtown theater to see it. That girlfriend is still married to me.

Back in the day, the Seattle Center had a theater, not sure if it still does or not. Must have been late 70's, I was 8-10 at the time. Loved it!

I honestly have no idea when I first saw Star Wars. I know the first one came out before I was born and my dad is a big fan so I know it was on in our house. But the first time I ever sat down and actually watched it? No idea.
I never cared much about it- though my crush on Darth Vadar I've had since I was a little girl (I think it's the shiny helmet lol).
Truth be told I never cared much for SWs until the game. Now I know more about the world than I ever have before and I'm excited about things. Yeah- this game made me a Star Wars fan
