I saw it advertised in the press and saw a picture of an x-wing chasing a TIE fighter in space. It blew my mind away.
1970's I must have been about 6
No idea what year it was. I was at home with Dad and my brother I must have been about 7-8.
I've grown up with Star Wars, the first of the trilogy was released 7 years before i was born so i had to rely on video!!
I think I was probably watching this from day dot. Waaaay before I had any idea what it was about. And I've kept watching!
I honestly can't remember the first time I watched the original Star Wars trilogy. It's literally something I grew up with (on VHS, sadly too young to see them at the cinema until the Special Editions).
I came across it through my step-son who was totally engulfed by it when it first came out in the late 1970s although I didn't go and watch it at the cinema until the anniversary, remastered versions came out in the 1990s.
In 1976 at Elstree Studios.
I first saw this if February 1977 [i was 14] there was a queue wrapped around the Odeon in Renfield Street, Glasgow, about 3 weeks after the film had first opened, the first showing had sold out s we all stod there for about a couple of hours
I saw this in 1977, my frineds mum took us to a cinema in the middle of London I was seven yeras old and this just blew me away
I was 18 when it first came out. I was actually visiting Prince Edward Island, (eastern Canada)
and had to go and see it.
1977.The City of Steel.The cusp of shaving.With only a single blade in the razor.
I remember pestering my dad to take me to see it when it first came out, I was only 8 at the time.
Goodness knows when I encoutered Star Wars for the first time, probably the toys before the films, they were everywhere, although I never really had any myself, and never really have.
I was nine.
I vaguely recall my sister taking me to see this around 1980. I was six.
As I said above I must have on ly been 3 or 4 years of age and seeing as though i was born in 1974 then I must have first seen this great movie in either 1977 or 1978. I had either watched it in Newcastle upon tyne or Bridlington for the first time.
Saw it when it came out, I was 18 and a science fiction fan
I came across the Star Wars trilogy int he early 80s during the home video boom. My father rented the tape and I realised as we watched it that I already knew the story. I had devoured the novelisation umpteen times already! I'd have been about 8 at the time.
I was nine and went to the cinema my Mum took me and it was the 1st film she didn't fall asleep in!!!
I was about 7 or 8 when I first saw Star Wars. At a friend's house. I didn't want to come back to the real world of school and people's living rooms. Booooring!
I was twelve and a better age for watching this film there could not possibly be.
I was five. I don't remember seeing where I saw it first!
Saw this in 1977 when it first came out, I remember queuing for ages all the way down the High St. The atmosphere was electric.
1995, i was 3, it was on the telvison
