Gosszilla commented about Happy 30th, "Empire" on May 26, 2010 at 8:56 am

I was 13 years old when I stood in line at the UA Cinema 150 on opening day in Seattle. The three hour wait to buy tickets and stand in line was an eternity, yet sailed by as my brothers and I talked about “Star Wars”. When the theater darkened, a hush came over the excited crowd which turned into applause and cheers as soon as the now familiar, “A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away” was ushered onscreen. You know the picture was so huge(70MM print baby!) on that slightly curved screen and the sound was so dynamic (six track Dolby stereo), I cannot remember “Empire” ever looking or sounding that good again. It was an event! What great memories those days are at the UA 150! I would “return” again… Thank you Mr. Lucas!
