I clearly remember watching the first release of Star Wars in 1977.
The impact was huge.
At the closing credits the entire audience stood and cheered.

I’d never seen that happen before, and had never seen anything like this movie: the intensity, the graphics, the story.
It was powerful.
A game changer.
Movies haven’t been the same since then – a long time ago.

May the Force Be with You.
