It’s been years since this little movie theater played an actual movie and it is now used for business meetings, power point presentations and kid’s birthday parties. The cool thing, is that it can be rented out for a reasonable fee.
So what would any nostalgic Star Wars fan do? Rent out the theater where he first saw this space fantasy, invite a few people and watch it exactly 30 years later. (Actually 30 years and one day later, but who’s counting?) So that’s what we did on August 25, 2007.

Looking out the projection booth
No, we didn’t have a print of the film, but used the original 1977 version on DVD. Even if we did have a print we didn't have anything to play it on as the projectors are long gone and they’ve been replaced by a DVD player and DVD projector. We had popcorn and soda at the concession stand, door prizes and Star Wars fun packets for the kids.
