That's right, it was 30 years ago today that The Empire Strikes Back was released to theaters, including at the original Cine Capri here in Phoenix.

I love the original Star Wars (of course), but Empire remains my favorite film of the dual trilogies. As the audience was well aware of who the characters were, the film jumps right into the the thick of the action and immediately puts our heroes into danger. From the Hoth Battle, the terrific Asteroid Field chase, the introduction (or re-introduction, depending on your point of view) of Yoda, a city in the clouds (and meeting scoundrel Lando Calrissian), and the revelation about Luke's parentage, The Empire Strikes Back is truly the stuff that dreams are made of.

Congratulations to George Lucas and Irvin Kershner on The First 30 Years!

I still remember the first time I saw it...starting off with "Episode 5? What?" and when Vader, who I thought was lying, said "No, I am your father!" My sister, who'd already seen it the movie, poked me in the ribs and whispered "So, what do you think of that!" LOL

At the tender age of 5, my first Star Wars memory was seeing this in a drive-in in Illinois. Still my favorite also.
