August 3rd 1977: Darth Vader, R2-D2, and C-3PO put their footprints in cement in the “The Forecourt of the Stars” at the Mann’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood, CA. To help celebrate the 44th anniversary of this event, Alan Sanborn shares his experience from that day. Welcome to our new segment – Today in Star Wars History! Beyond this day, we share historical fun facts about “The Forecourt of the Stars” dating all the way back to 1927 when Sid Grauman owned this famous theater.

We would like to dedicate this episode of STN to our friend Jonathan Rinzler who passed away on July 28th. Thank you for everything. You are now one with the Force…
