This thread is not going to make me feel very young…
Me either. I seem to be the oldest one so far.
My mother took me to see it in 1977. She’d read the book and then seen the movie once and thought I might light it. I ended up seeing it 10 times over the next 3 years. Then I saw on HBO a couple of times at a friend’s house. Then we moved and a new friend had it on tape (from HBO). The OT was one of the first things I got when we finally got a VCR in 1987. The 1985 version of A New Hope is my go to version because I watched it so often (way more than 20 times).
