A line snaked out the door at Sitka’s Coliseum Theatre on Thursday night, as people anxiously waited to see “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” the latest in the famous science fiction series.

There were costumes and lots of excitement for the sold out 7:30 p.m. show — a half hour before the film premiered on the east coast. KCAW’s Brielle Schaeffer was there and sent this postcard.
