Now, I guess I'll go first.
I remember going to opening day (there weren't many theaters that did morning shows unless it was a Saturday or Sunday) at the theater that no longer is a theater. My mom and dad got there before anyone else had lined up, so we went to the Burger King (which is still a BK) across the parking lot for dinner. I recall watching people start to line up, and my chances at being first gone like Fett down a Sarlaac. BTW, some friends I met later in middle/high school were apparently at that same theater that night, but I didn't know who they were yet. That was the only time I saw ROJ in a theater, prior to the SE in the mid/late '90s.
Others, on this Happy Birthday to ROJ day?
