Tonight in Hollywood, Star Wars: The Force Awakens was shown to VIP crowds in three separate theaters across L.A., including the TCL Chinese Theatre where the original Star Wars was played for the first time in 1977.

A half-mile stretch of road in front of iconic venue has been closed off for the red carpet.There were even stormtroopers marching onto the red carpet!

The newest Star Wars movie will hit the Lake Charles Cinemark this Friday. Matter of fact, my tickets were purchased by my sons. Kinda a early Christmas present.
