"Star Wars" (1977) aka "Star Wars IV: A New Hope" opened on May 25, 1977 according to imdb.com.

Anyone know when "Star Wars" first played at the Montana Theatre? Did it even make it to Miles City in 1977? I seem to recall the line extended down Main Street and may have even wrapped around the corner at 9th Street, but that was a long time ago in a galaxy far far away....

It took about six weeks for the movie to make it to Miles City in 1977, as best I recall. We were a more patient people, then.

6 weeks? I thought it was more like 6 months! I guess I wasn't very patient if 6 weeks felt like 6 months.

I first saw the movie in Billings before it made it to Miles City but you can bet I was there to see it again when it finally did come to Miles City.

So I was at a store buying supplies for Christmas and the purchase rang up as $44.44. The cashier looked at me and said, "I guess the fours are with you today." . . .

Yes. This really happened.

Did you ask the cashier, "Is your last name Bonine, by any chance?"

Wait...

So its playing tonight?

I didn't think it was even rolling out into theaters until the 18th!

How is it possible that it will play here before everywhere else!?

Might be worth a drive into town!

I'm jealous.

I just bought tickets to see it on Tuesday with my two kids. One of the local theaters just remodeled and installed reclining seats. They now do reserved seating (you pick your seat when you buy your ticket). It's pretty plush but some of the kids movies I see I already have a hard time staying awake. Putting me into full recline mode really tests me.

Meh... It will be cheaper to see if I wait until it hits redbox or the bargin bin at Target. The snack will be cheaper and I can control the sound volume.

It must be because Richard and I are old. I never got the Star Wars craze, either. Sure it was a fun yarn to watch, but I can think of at least a hundred movies I liked better.

I thought it was pretty cool when I saw it back in 1977 at Rimrock Mall, but shortly after, realized Battlestar Galactica was way better.

I have always been Star Trek fan even through all its versions. But I did like Star Wars.
