Watch the climax of Star Wars alongside an audience from 1977
- Boing Boing previously posted about YouTube user William Forsche, who had the forethought to bring a tape recorder to the movie theater back when he was a kid in order to capture the audience’s reaction to the original Star Wars. Well, YouTuber user Homer Thompson took that raw audio and put it alongside the visuals from the Star Wars climax, which provides a much better sense of what the audience is responding to. Han’s appearance gets the most applause, although the audience is pretty jazzed about the Death Star’s destruction too. The whole thing is a reminder of just how mindblowing the original Star Wars was when it first came out.
