    Personally, I'd be happy with even the *gasp* Special Editions without any extra bells and whistles - just give me classic OT on the BIG SCREEN again - even if was one of those 'Fathom Events' ( saw Love Never Dies that way, twice, and it was breathtaking).

    I never got to see the OT on the big screen. :(

    Doing so would be a long-time dream of mine. :D

    The only Star Wars movie I've never seen on the big screen is Return of the Jedi. I was only 3 when it was originally released and for some reason I didn't bother to see the Special Edition in the theater, despite having gone to the first two.

    i wont vote until we find out what the situation is between Fox and disney on this matter. Really important issue this. As the fox logo threads testify. Im sure the companies would mutually benefit but wow that fox into is iconic they may not want to bring attention to that

    Disney might be worried about prequel/SE fatigue.

    I saw them in release order and it was good. But it was hard work, arriving for 7am and getting out around 11pm

    By true and proper, I mean canon. It's true that it is my opinion in liking them more, but it is fact that any prior version is non-canon.

    I'd buy a ticket, some popcorn, maybe a drink and sit happily for twelve hours with the biggest grin on my face if this were to happen! :D

    If they did it for a week, people could split their own personal marathon 1 per night or 2 per night or 3 per night or however the heck they wanted to split it. It wouldn't have to be an all day thing (though they could do that too if they wanted to). Also, imagine a multipex set up so that each film was shown all day in 1 of 6 different auditoriums and each one had a theme room surrounding it filled with paraphernalia from that specific film (video games, toy sales, documentaries showing on displays etc. I'm not saying this could ever practically happen, I'm just enjoying my supergeek fantasy :D

    [edit]maybe they could do that once the fabled Star Wars theme park becomes a reality[/edit]

    You'd miss most of ROTJ; the total running time would be almost 14 hours. :p

    When the SE's were out some local theaters kept ANH and TESB on tap so they could play them together with ROTJ once it was released. But my silly self missed out on doing that. At least I saw all of the OT movies when they were out theatrically originally, and again as the SE's though... and of course all the PT movies too. But a marathon would have been cool. The closest I've come is a DVD marathon in one weekend... PT on Saturday and OT on Sunday.

    I've made it through all the movies in one day a couple of times, but it isn't easy and I get pretty burnt out before it's all over so I don't enjoy the last few as much. I tend to be on the verge of nodding out through most of ROTJ when I do that too. My preferred method of watching the films is either one a night or a trilogy a day, and occasionally two a night, always beginning with Episode I of course.

    You misunderstood me. I meant I'd be grinning for the first twelve hours but those last two would be spent with tears running down my face from a combination of seeing the saga come to an end and in memory of my poor extremities that I lost all feeling with five hours before. :p

    Those are domestic numbers. Internationally the Titanic 3D re-release made almost $300M.

    I've never sat down for a marathon all the way through (simply because I have a hard time getting through TPM and AOTC). There would be no better time to do so than the lead-up for Episode VII.

    But of course, this all hinges if on they do something like this.

    As much as I love SW...I don't think I could just sit down for 12 hours and watch all six movies.

    I think they should re-release them, and have EVEN MORE CGI add-ins just to make the cranky purists snivel.

    You kidding? E7 is still 2 years away. We'll probably get 3 or 4 repackagings between now and then.

    Seeng the films in the cinema is a great experience and just one that can't be replicated at home (even with bg screens etc). I find it impossible to do a Star Wars marathon in a single day at home... I can only get through two films (be it 2 from the OT or PT). :)

    Yes, I'm aware of how well Titanic did overseas, but that's because of the Chinese market where 3-D plays extremely well for some reason. Titanic 3-D made $145 million of it's eventual $285 million international gross in China alone... It played very soft in the rest of its foreign markets, hell just look at the numbers in Japan. Back in 1997 Titanic made $201 million dollars in Japan (far and away its best performance overseas), the 3-D reissue managed $4.8 million, almost $2 million less.that Phantom Menace in 3-D.
