Have you watched the new "Star Wars" movie yet?

Craig Foreman has. He made sure he was one of the first people to see by renting out an entire auditorium in an Ohio movie theater to do so.

A self-described "superfan," Foreman secured 87 seats for a Thursday screening of the movie, according to Ohio.com. It cost him about $1,300 for the 3-D screening, but a group of fellow fans from the Ohio Star Wars Collectors Club purchased tickets from Foreman, which helped offset his cost.

The group wore "custom T-shirts, buttons and magnets commemorating the event," President Dave Brown of Macedonia told Ohio.com.

Foreman has six lightsabers tattooed on his left arm, one for each movie in the franchise. He plans to add a seventh soon.

He first watched "Star Wars" as a re-release in 1979 and has collected memorabilia since he was young and continues to do so today, he told Ohio.com.

His favorite character when he was younger was Han Solo.

Foreman, who is the director and co-founder of Expedition Academy in Kent, Ohio, said he had been trying to book a screening for over a year.
