That’s not entirely correct. There were simultaneous bookings of “Star Wars” in the Hampton Roads area, all commencing on June 29, 1977. They were in Newport News (at Newmarket Mall 4), Norfolk (Circle 6), Portsmouth (Plaza 3) and Virginia Beach (Hilltop Twin).

Clarification: This is the first theater in the Hampton Roads area to play “Star Wars,” before it expanded into other local cinemas later in the summer of 1977.
