Tape recording surfaces of audience reaction to original Star Wars, from 1977.

An audio tape recording has surfaced from way back in 1977, in which we hear an audience reacting to seeing Star Wars for the first time at the cinema. It’s worth listening to/watching the whole thing, but I particularly enjoyed around the 2:40 mark, when the audience go crazy as Luke blows up the Death Star! Amazing piece of history.

I wonder if the reaction to the new Star Wars, coming this December, will be the same?
