Was it those infamous "Teddy Boys".? biggrin


No, the age limit for the Saturday Morning was 13.
Teds would hang around outside and nick entrance money off hapless kids in the queue to get in!
Apart from that, many cinemas had notices declaring that: 'young men wearing Edwardian style clothing will be denied entry' after the newspapers of the time trumpeted how Teds were ripping up cinema seating with flick-knives during the screening of 'Rock Around the Clock'.
The violence associated with 'Teddy Boys' was a media contrivance; most Teds valued their stylish garb that ate up most of their wages, to risk damage in a scrap. Teds were the first manifestation here of youth not dressing like younger versions of their parents in those harsh days following wartime depredations.

I also knew almost nothing about the Lord of the Rings books before the Peter Jackson films were released. I saw all three installments in the movie theater. Titanic I also saw in the movie theater and admittedly it was better than I was expecting.

Platoon I never saw in the theater but I've seen it on DVD/VHS multiple times. It's one of the best Vietnam war movies ever made IMHO.

Tombstone I saw on DVD a couple of years after it came out. Believe it or not, I have not seen Dirty Harry. One day I will.

It was much more intense in the theater. Plus you did not see clips here and there for twenty plus years that ruin your viewing experience since each clip tended to gives away important plot points.
Like the movie Saving Private Ryan even with a full surround sound home theater setup you just do not get the full visceral experience of the movie unless you saw it on the big screen.

My mom was 17 at the time so she might have also been a big fan but unfortunately she was trapped in a Communist shi*hole at the time.

There was a remake made about 10 years ago.

I remember seeing the previews. I didn't see it. Not a fan of musicals.

Same here with a few exceptions like Moulin Rouge.

The biggest mistake I made though was going see Evita in the movie theater. I didn't realize at the time that Evita was not a musical but an operetta which means every single word of dialogue is sung. That was a painful 2 hours.

From your description it sounds like you were 10 or younger at the time so I can totally understand why it was torture for you. A kid (especially a boy) having to watch a non-animated musical is more than enough torture.

Me neither; perhaps we are just not gay enough Panzer! smile

I did enjoy 'Rocky Horror' though.

Panzer HEART Musicals.

I haven't watch The Wizard Of Oz from beginning to end. I have tried several times but once the singing starts, I shut off.

"Against All Odds" is a forgotten movie but the hit song by Phil Collins for the movie is still well remembered. I have seen "Spinal Tap" but have never seen "Repo Man", "Harry & Son" or "Against All Odds". 1984 was actually the year I started seeing movies by myself in the theater. I saw both "Supergirl" and ""2010: The Year we make contact" in the movie theater.

I didn't have a cellphone until late 1998 and it was a work cellphone. It was one of the "brick" Nokia models.
