Well here's my stats.
Star Wars - First movie my mother let me go out and see with my cousin George (He's a trouble maker I was told). Anyway, we waited in like at like 6:00am, packed a lunch and everythiing, finally got into the movie for the 11:00pm showing and I was hooked. Saw it about 12 times in total.
Empire Strikes Back (my fav) - By this time I had the hype in my blood weeks before it came out. Did the 'camp out' deal cause I wanted to be in the first show. Success!! Even got souvenirs that they gave away at the openning. 16 times later and it's my current "most watched movie".
Return of the Jedi - "Holy furballs Batman".. Wasn't too happy about the cheery little furballs. Wanted people to die big time for messing with Han, some did but not enough for my tastes. Only saw this baby like 5 times.
The Phantom Menace - "Holy gungan's Batman.. what happened, they couldn't find any fur..". Yuk, only saw it twice (once at premiere and once to bring my nieces..). Very disappointed as the storyline / finale was SOOO much like Jedi that I actually got pissed off when I left.
As for the re-releases.. with the extra footage. I bought them and watched each 3 times. Held star Wars marathons at my house with the boys.
I pretty much won't watch the old ones until I have kids now.. It's just too much..

i am not sure how many times i have seen each one over the years, but it is something like:
Star Wars: at least 20... once i saw it at the Fox Theater in Atlanta, Georiga on a partially curved (90 degrees?) panoramic screen. awesome! my favorite
Empire Strikes Back: at least 12
Return of the Jedi: around 10
Phantom Menace: 1 time... never again!
when they re-released the old ones i saw all 3 in the same day.
oh yea, i was stuck on the Navy base back in 94/95 on New Year's Day and i watched all 3 back-to-back on t.v. when they had a Star Wars marathon...

Ok, to add some balance to any statistics you may be gathering, my response to all the four movies: ZERO.
Yep, I haven't seen any of them yet!
