‘Star Wars’ comes to Auburn

In honor of May the Fourth, Star Wars Day, let’s take the best short-notice gander at the Force’s initial impact on Auburn we can. Star Wars got to Auburn a few weeks late, of course, but once it arrived it stayed, held over, a costume party-level hit–even with The Plainsman. And–true story–R2D2 was the only droid to survive the Kopper Kettle explosion.

May the microfiche be with us. Always.
