Star Wars fans attend the premiere in Paragould

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) -

Thursday was the night that Star Wars fans have been waiting all year for.

Fans threw on their best Luke Skywalker and storm trooper outfits and headed to the movie theater for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Rex Snow was excited to see the movie with his mom at the Paragould Cinema 8 at 7 p.m. Thursday.

“That Kylo Ren has the same lightsaber as me,” Rex said when asked what he was most excited about.

The cinema sold out both their 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. showings Thursday.

Chrissy Snow had her tickets for weeks, but it was a surprise for her son.

“I’m excited just to see their faces,” Snow said. “This is all I’ve heard about all season long. I mean, it’s been nothing but Star Wars, so we’re excited.”

The theater was also selling Star Wars collector combos with popcorn buckets and cups.

Paragould Cinema 8 is already sold out for the 7:30 p.m. showing Friday, but there are still tickets available for other showtimes.
