What is being billed as the biggest Star Wars exhibition ever in the U.K. has opened in London, including costumes of the principal characters, set pieces, and even a "training school" for prospective Jedi knights. The show is opening just weeks away from the 30th anniversary of the premiere of the original Star Wars in the U.S. on May 25, 1977. The exhibition's opening also occurred on the same day that a survey was released by Britain's Sky Movies channel doubtfully claiming that Star Wars was the most-watched movie of all time and that half of respondents had watched it more than 20 times. (The website ShowbizData.com estimates that the number of theater admissions for Gone With The Wind is at least four times greater than those for Star Wars.)
