T.T.W.L.I.T.C.M. (Trashy Teeens Who Loiter in The Commack Multiplex) will hold a protest on Oct. 1, 2007. All are welcome to show their support. No one over the age of 18, please! After that, the Commack Multiplex Odd Smell Preservation Society will hold a rally in order to bottle and save the original Commack Multiplex odor. All are welcome.

Elvis died in Summer of 1977; therefore, Rosie was probably watching Star Wars, Orca or The Deep ….. although I’d like to think she was seeing Suspiria !

Did Jerry approve that UGLY caricature that was used for the marque and in ads ?

I’m with you on that. Disney should erect an “adult” replica/ retro theme park, with a strip of vintage Grind Houses! That would be so cool!

Bloop commented about Whitman Theatre on Aug 1, 2007 at 10:00 am

The first movie I saw at Whitman, was “The Jungle Book” when it was new. We did not go there often, but I remember every movie I had seen there. A friend of mine worked there in 1978/79. Saw “Animal House” for free, as well as a re-release of “American Graffiti” . This was shortly before Whitman went “grind house” (SEE my above history and ads!). For some reason , “Dressed to Kill” sticks out in my mind the most, out of any movies I had seen at the Whitman.

Saps, another great story! Yeah, the Larkfield marquee was so SMALL. So I have no idea how you could have “juiced up” the movie titles—except with an exclamation point here and there. LOL.
What was the last movie playing there when you had left in 1978? Do you remember a strange double bill at Larkfield of “TunnelVision” and a cheap movie called “American Tickler” circa 1977? Also, like I said earlier…do you remember when people actually smoked POT in movie theaters? I remember this was a common practice for the early Cheech and Chong movies, and other related “head” movies.

Bloop commented about Concession History on Jul 16, 2007 at 12:09 pm

Concession stand prices in movie theaters SKY-ROCKETED in the Regan 1980’s and never slowed down. Today, the price is obscene (mainly the popcorn issue, as to how actually cheap it is, per pound, when you visit the supermarket). But who goes to the movie theater to eat? Have dinner first.

Per:BobT “walking out on a movie”. I have only walked out of two movies in my lifetime: 1) “Something Special” (look it up on IMDB—-too complicated to explain). 2)The “Batman” movie (part 3? Part 4?) the one with with Mr. Freeze and Poison Ivy.__-Movie I WISH I could have walked out on but did not because I was with friends :—>“WILLOW”, “Summer Rental”, “Hellraiser”.

Hmmm… I’m gonna go with the last bit of information. Wouldn’t it be a hoot if the Commack Drive-In explained it on their marque in plastic letters! “Please excuse the distributor’s title change on Revenge of the Living Dead…It’s former title was Children Shouldn’t Play with Dead Things…we just thought you’d like to know that before paying so there was no mistake or deception. Enjoy the show!”

P.S. BobT’s “Revenge of the Living Dead” comment : That series in the “Orgy” ad, was from the Spanish “…Living Dead” series (“Tomb of the Blind Dead”, etc) …just assumed they were obscure retitles from God-knows-where. If indeed one of those titles was actually “Children Shouldn’t…” we will never know for sure!? Also, this “Orgy…” was mentioned in Michael Weldon’s Psychotronic Film Guide with no mentions of “Children…” and he’s pretty dead-on about those things…but who knows, it was the willy nilly 1970’s when ANYTHING could happen!

I meant that “Day of the Locust” was not exactly a great movie choice for the typical Long Island Drive-In Family (and I do remember it being a BOMB….box office-wise). Although I would like to see it as I have a serious Karen Black fixation. Isn’t it funny how she was on the Hollywood “A List” till “Burnt Offerings” happened!? In a fairly recent interview (maybe 10 years ago), she was telling of her role as a mother of at least one teen-aged daughter. Ms. Black was telling some story about picking her daughter up from school, and the daughter was embarassed by the choice of vehicle her Mom was driving (an out-dated looking SUV?).Anyway, I just imagined being in the high school parking lot——and seeing Karen Black pulling up! LOL. That would be an image that would stay with me FOREVER!
