The first Star Wars movie (A New Hope) came out in 1976 when I was itty bitty.  I don’t remember if I saw it in its original run or not.  What I do clearly remember is watching The Empire Strikes Back on the big screen and my little brother was scared of the swamp scene with Yoda and had to leave the theater.  I don’t remember if I got to watch it to the end.  Return of the Jedi has always been my favorite of the original trilogy.  Maybe because I was finally old enough for the entire movie to sink in and I wasn’t being asked to escort my brother outside.  I will always remember the shock and thrill…
