  Now this was the way to wrap up a blockbuster trilogy of movies.

  Remember the anticipation for The Return of the Jedi?
  Remember the unfulfilled feeling that Empire Strikes Back left us (back then, we weren't used to the trilogy format)
  Remember the huge step forward that Jedi brought in special effects?
  Remember the astounding costs for George Lucas's 3rd masterpiece?
  Remember the old Northgate movie theater?
  It's all here in this preview from the opening in May of 1983.

  After the preview, our late crew returned to get reaction from the first people to see the movie.
  Recognize any of these fans from 1983?

   We leave you with one more Star Wars tidbit from the Archives.
   Remember the Star Wars glasses?
