A local news station interviewed fans after seeing Empire Strikes Back open back in 1980 and from the outset you can tell they have absolutely no experience with film or Star Wars fans. Many of the people in line saw Star Wars multiple times, one guy saw A New Hope 17 times and you can tell the interviewer was quite surprised. The line started a couple hours before the showing of the film and again, this seemed surprising for the time and it really was. The Rise of Skywalker was a film that I decided to come to early even though my local Regal finally converted to reserve all the seats. I wanted to have one last hurrah with showing up a bit early and waiting with the fans on the night before the opening and it was a blast to do that one last time.

This is fantastic "slice of life" footage!
