    Description

    Star Wars (20th Century Fox, 1977). Charity Premiere Screening Handbill (8.5" X 14"). Science Fiction.
    Featured is a handbill for a charity premiere showing of Star Wars on July 1, 1977 benefiting the Memorial Hospital Foundation located in Modesto, CA (George Lucas' hometown). There was an afternoon "lemonade matinee" for kids, which filled about half of the theater. The evening showing for adults, which included a "champagne party" afterward, was sold out. There were souvenir buttons, posters and comic books. The next day, the movie opened to the general public in Modesto. Very Scarce. Starring Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Alec Guinness, Peter Cushing, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker, Peter Mayhew, David Prowse and James Earl Jones. Directed by George Lucas. A very lightly used, unrestored handbill with fresh, saturated colors. The poster should have no holes, no tears, and no paper loss. Please see full-color, enlargeable image above for more details. Near Mint.
