40/40 Day 1 Report

We survived Day 1.

Three brave souls made it all the way from the opening crawl of The Phantom Menace at 9am to the end credits of Return of the Jedi, some 15 hours later - one of whom who had never seen ANY of the Star Wars films before (Impressive - MOST impressive, Bill!).

We also had a couple of other folks who caught a number of the screenings throughout the day. Mom had never seen the prequel trilogy, and managed to experience all three of those back-to-back.

I always dreamed of having a home theater that would allow me to experience my favorite films in as close to a public theater presentation as possible, and watching a Star Destroyer fill a 104" wide screen is about as close as one could reasonably expect. What makes it even better is experiencing it with friends.

All in all, the day was a grand success, and exactly what I was hoping for out of the 40/40 series. And this is only the beginning.

On deck: The Adventures of Indiana Jones!
