BOOTH-EYE VIEW - A view from the ticket booth at the Briarwood Movies shows crowds of people lined up Friday evening to see "Star Wars," which opened this week. Steven Flynn, manager of the Movies says all seven Friday showings of the popular science fiction movie were sold out. Because of the great interest in the movie, he said tickets for the 7:50 and 10:15 p.m. showings are being sold at the same time. Flynn said this morning 360 people had lined up by 10 a.m. to see "Star Wars," and some of the moviegoers had been in line for more than an hour. He said robots will be seating people at the 7:50 p.m. showing today. Above the ticket booth are specially printed instructions on buying tickets for "Star Wars." He said all of the movies last night sold out except "For the Love of Benji," which is playing at the Movies 4. Other Briarwood movies attracting large lines are the epic war film "A Bridge Too Far" and "Exorcist II, The Heretic." (News Photo by Robert Chase)
