I don't remember WHEN, exactly, I found out- but I DO remember the excitement that made me even MORE hyperactive than usual; see, this was my first chance to see any of the films on the big screen, since I'm too young to have seen them in theaters (I was born in 1985, two years after ROTJ came out). So I just kept bugging my parents to take me to see ANH:SE, and it was GREAT! One of the best moviegoing experiences I've ever had- though I'll admit, the fact that ANH is my favorite SW film didn't hurt matters one bit! I was so ecstatic at the chance to finally see these films in theaters, I kept pestering my parents until they agreed to take me to see ESB and ROTJ as soon as they hit our local theater, too- and then kept pestering them every so often in the intervening months to make sure they didn't forget. Yeah, I was a royal pest about it- but it worked, and I finally got to see the entire trilogy on the big screen. As far as ESB, one part I remember in particular is that seeing it on the big screen allowed me to see details I'd never seen before, even in the unaltered parts; for example, I'd never noticed this one lizard (to me, it looks like an iguana, especially having seen it 10 feet tall) on a log at one point where Yoda is lecturing Luke; I also remember seeing Luke pull that snake out of his X-wing's engine intake for the first time in theaters. Yeah, I loved seeing them, since there's no substitute to seeing them in theaters, and it was really my first and only chance to do so. Can't argue with that, am I right?
