Where Were You On Opening Day?

May 25, 1983… one of the most famous and memorable days in motion picture history.  If you are a Star Wars fan of a certain age, chances are you remember where you were that day.  Like countless others who ditched school or called in sick to work, you were probably standing in a very long line awaiting your opportunity to see the concluding chapter of George Lucas’s original Star Wars trilogy.  Yes, believe it or not, Return of the Jedi has turned thirty years old.
