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 audienceís reaction to the original Star Wars.

Hanís appearance gets the most applause, although the audience is pretty jazzed about the Death Starís destruction too.
