A reader reported just around 12:15pm:

“Just thought you might want to know, looks like people are already camping out in front of the Uptown.”

I couldn’t believe it but I remember when the Star Wars film came out in 1999 and I was living a few blocks away from the Uptown at that time and one night I came stumbling walking home around 3am and there was this massive line outside my building. The building was a full two blocks away from the Theatre mind you and I was like “what the shit is this?”. And then because I was young and a total jerk I charged somebody waiting in line $20 to use my bathroom. I’ve been wracked with guilt over that ever since. I feel better now, thank you. Anyway I digress.

And so the circle of Star Wars films continues:
