Star Wars fan celebrates 30th Anniversary

Star Wars stories

I am a Star Wars fan in Toronto, Canada.

Last week, I visited San Francisco. As I am sure you know, Star Wars was screened for a test audience at the Northpoint Theatre in San Francisco on May 1, 1977. The Northpoint is no longer a theatre, and the building currently serves as office space for Viz Media, a Japanese Animation company. The exterior is the same, however.

I visited the site on May 1, 2007 - the 30th Anniversary Day of the pre-premiere screening. As far as I can tell, I was the only SW fan at the location; and certainly the only one there at 10:00am, which is when the screening began in 1977.

Here are some photos for you to see.

With Best Regards,
Ian Anthony

Hi,

The Northpoint was originally at 2290 Powell, but when it became an office building, it got re-addressed as 290 Bay Street.  It is still at the same location though, at the Southeast Corner of Bay and Powell, across the street from Ceasar's Italian Restaurant.

Thanks, Ian
