The first Star Wars movie I saw was Empire on laserdisk back in 83 or so at my friends house. I was 8ish, and to this day that's the best damn movie I've ever seen.
Nice glowstick ya pansy!

A new hope


Back then it took Swedich television a few years befor they aired a movie.

I was 4 and saw the movie with my parents.

All I wanted was to be like Luke back then, not untill I was 20, it was Han that I thought was the coolest

Probably 1994, watching Episode IV at my grandparents' house on VHS. I was 4 at the time, and have loved Star Wars ever since.

My first ever was when The Phantom Menace was released in theatres. I'm 16 now, and I have no idea when it was released. I remember Obi-Wan running down that laser-barrier hallway while Darth Maul and Quan-Jin(?) were battling it out.

I'm going to watch it in theatres when they release it in 3D.

Very, very young. Maybe 3 years old. I saw Empire Strikes Back at a theater somewhere with my parents long after it had already been released (probably 1983-84). Like someone else posted, the battle on Hoth sucked me in. From then on I had to have every Star Wars toy available. For the longest time though I thought Storm Trooper action figures were the good guys because they wore white. LOL.

I was really young too, probably 4-5? And I saw Episode IV on a video tape. :P

It was also my first movie, so yeah, Star Wars got into my blood.

I don't remember how old I was but I was extremely young probably 4-6 in the early 80's I remember hanging from the monkey bars upside down at the playground trying to use the force to make my "LIGHTSAVER, or LIFESAVER" come to my hand so that I could kill the snow monster.

June 1977 and 13 years old here as well.

I'm somewhat proud of the fact that I've seen all six films in the theatre for their first-runs. In fact for all but the first movie, I was a member of the "opening day" crowd.
