“The Producers”, “City Lights”, and “A Man For All Seasons”.
And Bonaparte’s restaurant.
double feature and then hit the Richelieu for a frappe or a black and white soda?
My father took me to see The Tingler – rumor has it that the seats were wired so that when you saw the tingler you got a mild shock(?)
I remember seeing “Fail Safe” and you could hear a pin drop. Afterwards, utter silence and just the shuffling of people quietly leaving.
Anyone reminded of the ‘64 LBJ-Goldwater election and the “Daisy” commercial?
comment from a relatively “young-un” – One of the great movie experiences of my childhood was “Lawrence of Arabia” – and in THAT theater and on THAT screen, I’ll say no more.
And you know what else – one of the saddest Saturdays in American History, the rainy day after JFK’s assassination, went to see “The Haunting”
I may be wrong but I believe my father took me to the opening double-bill, “3 Worlds of Gulliver” + “Stop Look and Laugh” – I seem to recall the grand opening spotlights.
