Star Wars VII
In 1977 I was among the first in Boston to see the first Star Wars® movie.  It was a huge event, and they kept making more movies . . . Episodes V, VI, I, II, and III.  Opinions vary, but I enjoyed every one, every time.

As you might expect, I have managed to see every Star Wars® movie since the first, more often than not on the first day, but always in the first week.  I have told the story of the first movie more than once before, but I am writing this account shortly after my first experience of  Star Wars - The Force Awakens.  The theater experience has changed quite a bit.  Our local Showcase multiplex has converted to reclining loungers, online ticketing and reserved seating.  With bar-coded tickets in hand, we took our seats for the Saturday afternoon show on December 19th.

Back in 1977 it took the entertainment world a while to recover from the first blockbuster.  This time the People Magazine special issue came out before the movie was released; I found it by accident at the drug store a few days later.  The wonder continues . . .
