Movie Listings of the Past – October 15, 1977 – Daytona Beach Morning Journal

Now here’s a movie advert for two films that are actually in The Langrick Film Forum library: “Young Frankenstein” and “M*A*S*H”!  I bet you’ll never see those two films on the same bill again, and certainly, will never see them on real film ever again (unless of course, you’re at The Langrick Film Forum).

Don’t Dream It, Buy It!

The Rocky Horror Picture Show  –  1975   The Rocky Horror Picture Show has been on the Langrick Film Forum’s short list of Must-Haves since the very beginning, and now I am happy to say we got it!  Of course, we’ve had not one but two copies of the Super8 Digest for some time, and…

Movie Listing of the Past – July 15, 1979 and April 27, 1980

When I was a kid I have a very vivid memory of going to the Daytona Mall and seeing “Dawn of the Dead” advertised on the marquee for the Daytona 6 Theater, and it freaked me out!  So much so that I still have a chill thinking about it today.  I mean, I’d obviously seen…

Movie Listings of the Past – November 28, 1982

Wow, just wow.  The odds of me wanting to see every movie being shown at a multi-screen theater today are asymptotically close to 0%, but here in late November 1982 at the Volusia Mall Cinemas we have three films that I would gladly pay $2 to see a couple dozen times on the big screen.

Movie Listings of the Past – June 16, 1979

Here’s another movie listing from the Daytona Beach Morning Journal on June 16, 1979.  I would never have thought that “Fritz the Cat” and its sub-par sequel “The Nine Lives of Fritz the Cat” would have played DeLand, but here it is at the DeLand Cinema (listed here as “Woodland Plaza”).  Of course just down…

Whistle While You Work

Bridge on the River Kwai – 1957   Our Memorial Day 2016 main feature, or at least one or two reels of it (there are four) is 1957’s Bridge on the River Kwai.  I was able to procure this print for a very reasonable price from a fellow member of one of the online film…

A Little Pink for Memorial Day

“Pinky Doodle” – 1976   This weekend (May 28) marks the 40th anniversary of this cartoon.  Its a rather typical mid-70’s Pink Panther outing in which, um Pink(what exactly do you call him?) is a Revolutionary who apparently gets the call to notify the locals that the British are coming, a la Paul Revere.  To…

An Unattended Movie

If any of you are wondering where the update on my NYC trip to see “An Unmarried Woman” is, well I have one word to explain things: Delta. I won’t allow this post to turn into a rant on how utterly useless Delta is and how pathetic they are doing the one thing they are…

An Unmarried Woman…

So next week I’m off to NYC to see an unmarried woman…or rather to see a screening of “An Unmarried Woman” (and do some work stuff, but who cares about that?).  In any case the IFC Center is doing a tribute to Paul Mazursky who died last June and which I tributed(?) back then as…
