Star Wars Opening Weekend in San Francisco (1977)

Star Wars (1977, by George Lucas) opened on Wednesday, March 28th 1977 in San Francisco.

” The Coronet was the only theater for 50 miles playing the space opera, but it seated more than 1,300 … most of whom appear to be in this line – Peter Hartlaub, The Chronicle.

Here are some shots from that day, taked by Gary Fong.

Thank you Rawad Nassif for this kind contribution.
