Share Your Star Wars Moviegoing Memories With Us!

The biggest movie news right now is the new trailer for the next Star Wars film, The Rise of Skywalker. Set to hit theaters this December, this ninth film in the sci-fi space franchise will wrap up the story of Luke, Leia, Rey, Finn, Poe, Kylo, Chewbacca, et al. (Don’t worry though, as there will likely be new Star Wars films from now until the end of time, indeed both the creators of Game of Thrones and The Last Jedi‘s Rian Johnson are working on brand new trilogies as you read this). We thought we’d take advantage of this latest wave of Star Wars mania to ask you about your memories about seeing these films in theaters. So we’d like you to answer any or all of the following questions in the comments:

– What was the first Star Wars film you saw in the theater?
– How many Star Wars films have you seen during their initial theatrical exhibition?
– What are your memories of what the crowd reactions were like to these movies? Do you remember any specific scene that got a huge response? If so, what was it?
– Which Star Wars movie did you see theatrically the most and why?
– What was the longest line you ever had to wait in to get tickets to see a Star Wars film?

Also feel free to share with us any of your memories about seeing these films theatrically. The comments section may not be a galaxy far, far away, but it is a fun place to share your thoughts on these unforgettable movies and characters. So have fun and remember, the Force will be with you, always!

    I have stated this elsewhere, but I’ll repeat it. When I was 8 or 9 my father took the family to see “Patton”. I don’t actually remember going to see it, actually, but it had repercussions. Because of the language my father refused to let my sister and me go to any PG movies. When Star Wars came out he was still sticking by it, but I was reading the novelization and pointed out that there were no foul words in it, so finally he broke down and allowed us to go. I went to every one of the following movies (because by the time the sequels came out I was of age and didn’t have to ask permission.) I always waited until a week or so after the release so there were no long lines. I only went once to each in the theater, but I have the DVDs so I have seen the movies several times at home.
