STAR WARS: A NEW HOPE

This started the whole Star War Saga, although its episode IV, it was the first movie. I remember watching it for the first time in the Cinema 70 Theatre in West Palm Beach, FL the first day it came out. On the screen is the biggest Space Ship I had ever seen in a movie.  Then behind it is a Star Destroyer. The ride began and didn’t end till the closing credits. This was the first of close to 20 times I went to see it, in the 12 months that it was at the Cinema 70 (Yes 12 months... Line for every show the first ten months, then it was like a normal hit movie for the last two). For you young uns not born when it came out... NO MOVIE had the effect like it did.  It did things we didn’t think we would ever see in a live action movie. Then it came out that it was number 4 of 9. That we would see 4,5,6 then 1,2,3 and finally 7,8,9. Now it looks like we will only get six episodes - a shame.
