Star Wars Opened 35 years ago today! WTF?
Today marks the 35th anniversary of Star Wars. THIRTY-FIVE YEARS AGO!
The movie that spawned sequels, prequels, animated series, novels, comic books, costumes, toys, video games, board games, and everything imaginable, opened on this date 35 years ago. I keep saying it but I still can’t get used to it.
I remember seeing it at a matinée back in 1977 with my father and my sister. We walked out of the theatre stunned by both the sudden brightness of the outdoors and the mind-boggling visual effects. It reminded my father of the old Flash Gordon serials he used to watch as a kid.
Later that year, I went see the film, when ever and where ever I could, once a week every week for the next year and a half. I was a big movie fan back then and I would see at least three to five movies per week. Hey, movies were $5 back then. $2 every Tuesday so why wouldn’t I go to the movies every week.
Seeing Star Wars with my dad became a father/son tradition. When Empire and Jedi came out, we were the first to see them. A bond that would only be broken by the prequels.
I had the film on Betamax, VHS, and I would have had it on Laser disc too but I had just spent $800. on a Betamax machine! Ugh!
Star Wars. 35 years! Where did the time go? Phew!

GREG MORTON, in for more Good Nights at Goodnight’s – May 10 – 13, 2012
Goodnight’s Comedy Club opened in 1983 in the height of the stand up comedy craze, and through the years, it has earned the reputation for being one of the top comedy clubs in America. Goodnight’s has been sited in both USA Today and The Wall Street Journal as “One of the Top 10 Places to Sit Down and See Stand Up.”
This coming week, special Mother’s day shows have been planned with Mr. Morton in mind. Why? Because this is the kind of show you can bring your mother to! The show is PG 13 and one of the most entertaining shows you’ll see at Goodnight’s this year!
Greg has been a regular in Las Vegas and Atlantic City for several reasons. It has stand-up comedy, impressions, music, and much much more. Las Vegas Magazine, call’s his show “completely entertaining.”
There are also two restaurants on the premises where guests can enjoy a full dinner or a quick bite to eat before the show. The Grille at Goodnight’s is located one floor above the comedy club. The Grille is open before select shows, and the menu consists of classic American fare.
The Old Bar is a casual restaurant located one floor below the comedy club, featuring burgers, salads, Tex Mex favorites, prime rib, a daily blue plate special and more. The Old Bar offers great food, music, and a wide variety of micro brews in a relaxed atmosphere.
Guests who enjoy dinner before the show receive priority seating (assigned seating within the first three rows from the stage) in the comedy club. Sounds like great evening of good food and entertainment. May 10 – 13. Can’t wait!
