I saw the original Star Wars (Episode IV – A New Hope) for the very first time with my cousin at this theater on Wednesday, August 10, 1977, at 3:30 P.M. (how’s that for accuracy?). I was then 15 and visiting my relatives for a week; every time I see this original Star Wars again those pleasant memories come back of seeing it at the Laurel 30.

Now, whenever I’m in the mood to see Star Wars again (I have the DVD box set of the original trilogy), I have to see it undisturbed (I plug my headset into the TV to hear it in stereo and without any outside interference, for example). The memory of first seeing it at the Laurel 30, to me, is too sacred to have it cheapened by any disturbances.

In addition to my above comment, I also meant to say that my cousin, whom I referred to above (who commented on the Gem Theater in Derry as Canary No1), told me the Laurel 30 Twin has been renovated and reopened – they still show first-run movies – and one of the amenities is that waitresses will come to your seat and take your order for food and drinks, as many modern-day theaters have begun doing.

She didn’t tell me if the Laurel 30 is continuing under that name or if it has a new identity (I don’t doubt it’s now independently owned). I will pass along more info once I get it.
