I was nine at the Flamingo A Woman Cannot Survive On Wine Alone She Also Needs A Cruise Shirt time. My grandmother, on a whim, took me to see it at a very old theater that had only one huge screen in a huge room. It was covered in red velvet-looking curtains. When the lights went down and the curtains swooshed back and the screen lit up. I do not really remember reading the opening text, but damn does I remember that first Imperial ship passing overhead, speakers rumbling…it was surreal. We talked about that day for years and years. Even decades later she had to bring it up. She absolutely loved the movie, and so did I. I didn’t see it again until well after it was released on VHS. Then I had to save like crazy to afford the $80 they wanted for it. How times change.
