Bundled in winter coats and blankets, more than a dozen people braved a cold, blustery Thursday afternoon to be at the front of the line for the opening of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” at Kingman Cinemas.

Local businessman Scott Preston purchased 250 tickets to give away for the show, his annual Christmas gift to the community.

Linda Ray, wearing her “Star Wars” embroidered Santa hat, said she’s a big fan and got there at 9:30 a.m. to make sure she got her pick of theater seating.
