Seeming as you would have to be in your late 30's to have seen the OT in the theater i thought it would be better to have a topic for sharing stories from 1997 when EVERYONE actually got a REAL fair chance to see the OT. For example i was 9 years old and i got to see the trilogy the "right" way. By that i mean i actually got to see it in the theater with mad hyped up people and IN ORDER, witch is important. I thought it would be better talking about the Special Edition re-release of the trilogy because this way A LOT MORE posters on here can be involved in the discussion because 97 wasn't that long ago. Also i would like to add that this topic is NOT about discussing the SE changes in any way, for good or bad. Its just about the fact that people got a real 2nd chance to see these movies on the big screen and even got to take there children to see the very movies they themselves grew up on. Please include the following... 1.)When you first found out and all the anticipation. 2.)A story of your experience seeing it at the theater. 3.)How many times you went to see each film. So....SHARE YOUR STORYS!!!
