Der Kult un Star Wars wirkt in jeder Generation anders. Den Impact den Star Wars im Jahr 1977 auf Kino, Musik, Toys und Alles hatte, sehen wir alle bis heute.

Hat sich bis heute wohl so nicht wiederholt. Vielleicht bei “Herr der Ringe” ein kleines bisschen. Aber sicher immer nicht weit entfernt…

Actress Carrie Fisher told Time magazine…

“It wasn’t like a movie opening, it was like an earthquake.”

The Chinese Theatre was at the epicenter of that earthquake, and thousands of fans were drawn to it every day. Speaking to CNN, Star Wars fan Chris Balduc recalled traveling from the San Fernando Valley to Hollywood to see the movie on May 26th, just one day after the film opened.

“The long line wound down the street from Grauman’s Chinese Theatre and around the block. News helicopters hovered in the air above the crowd. Star Wars was the first film to earn a reputation as a party movie — the fans brought costumes, beach balls, folding chairs for the line, and an almost palatable anticipation. […] There was no better place to see it than Grauman’s Chinese in its pre-multiplex days.”
