From George Lucas' hometown of Modesto, California, comes an extremely scarce "Star Wars" memorabilia item. A handbill used by the cinema to advertise a charity premiere showing of his movie on July 1, 1977, with the screening benefiting the Memorial Hospital Foundation. This was an early preview, with the film opening to the general public in Modesto the very next day. This remarkable piece represents a 'Star Wars' first for a Prop Store auction.
