Yes, I Did See That In The Theater Continued…….

I kind of enjoyed the first posting and looking back at what I recalled about seeing some of these titles on the big screen.

How about Kirk Douglas re-living Pearl Harbor.

“I believe what we stumbled across is not man-made but a phenomena of nature, one that can’t be explained. This phenomena is the storm in which the Nimitz went through less than 18 hours ago, the storm has had some effect on time as we know it, it created a portal, a door into another era. Today is December 7, 1941… I’m sure we are all aware of the significance of this date in this place in history. We are going to fight a battle that was lost before most of you were born. This time, with God’s help, its going to be different… Good Luck”

Off with the family to see the guy from the Telethon and those funny movies on afternoon tv on the big screen.

Hiding in the back of an old seventies van with 2 other underage guys while sneaking into a drive in theater. We’re talking BRONSON here. You gotta take that chance.

My first big screen Bond outing. Yes I grew up in the Roger Moore era.

I’ll bet I’m one of the few who saw this on a big screen.

  1. Moonraker on the big screen must have been fun!! But so was Clint and Bronson. John Terry is so young there in Hawk.. familiar face in so many movies. I like this idea and might borrow it with credit of course 🙂

  2. Well, I’m “stealing” this idea (sort of). I’ve previously mentioned a bunch of films I saw on their original releases in past articles (the original Planet of the Apes, Alien, The Doberman Gang and a few more), but not all at once. Well, let me tweet this post like I did Kristina’s, go read your first post and get to starting on my own list… Thanks for the inspiration, Mike!

    • Glad you stopped by. Fun to reminisce and sounds like you have plenty of titles and thoughts to share. I would love to have seen the original Apes film on it’s initial release but that wasn’t quite possible just yet. 🙂

  3. The only movie here that I’ve seen is “The Final Countdown”, and I saw that just a couple of months ago. The only reason I sat through the whole thing is because I’m a Kirk Douglas fan.

    Regarding “Moonraker”: Never saw it, but I am one of the heretics who believes Roger Moore was the best bond.

    • Anytime you can recollect catching a movie with Dad is a good thing. I still try to do it but he lives about 2000 kms away. A couple years ago I took him to Django Unchained while he was visiting and it’s still fun to do. Thanks and I am sure I’ll do another.
