You wait ten years for Star Wars to return and then the cinema goes and destroys your experience, funny to watch, undeniably infuriating to experience.
Fans of the cult movie series in LA were left feeling that sense of overwhelming rage after the projector in their screen failed as The Force Awakens premiered on Thursday.
To make matters worse the packed showing at Hollywood’s Arclight resumed at a later point, angering viewers even more as they feared seeing spoilers.
Check it out.
Naturally social media became a focal point for complaint and frustration.

Watching a new Star Wars is a bit like losing your virginity. You can only do it once, and that memory will remain. Second attempts may be better, but the surprise is gone.
