Wings

Gee Jon, homicide isn't necessary; just get on a plane... Tickets are still available! Anybody hungry? To encourage "the survival of vintage theaters," Allen Michaan, owner of the Grand Lake Theatre in Oakland, California and the Orinda Theatre in Orinda, California is offering free popcor...

Ballots for billets

The history of Baltimore's Senator is a dramatic one; especially the recent developments! The Wikipedia article says: On March 5th, 2007, the Baltimore City Commission for Historical and Architectural Preservation (CHAP) is scheduled to review and vote on the proposed Baltimore City Landmark designa...

Shouldn't they be looking at a screen, and not back at us? They 're on the screen, and they've broken the fourth wall a lá Bob-and-Bing in a Road picture. Actually, isn't this the way that Fancy Pants closes? Bob Hope and Jane Russell (she, in her costume from The Paleface ) walking into the horizo...

Good Morning, Baltimore!

Cool! Thanks Jon! Was The Charles originally built as a theatre or was it refurbished into a cineplex? The Senator looks great! What is its capacity? The small town where I was raised also had a Senator. Do you suppose they were all part of the same chain? Last I knew, United Artists had sold The Se...

Dying to see these movies?

Yes, I'll be seeing movies with Kevin Brownlow and Spike Lee live and in person during this year's San Francisco International Film Festival (see above); but Cinespia has announced that those in the Hollywood region can soon see movies alongside their favorite dead classic movie stars! Beginning in ...

It's darkest before Dwan.

Don't forget that next Saturday at the Castro, they are honoring Kevin Brownlow (who will be there) and screening one of my favorite Doug, Sr movies "Man in the Iron Mask". You have no idea how much I wish I could be there with you... How funny that I should return home to find this messa...

Movie Palaces, Cinemas and Theaters of Yesterday and Today

Thanks to the TCM Refugees "Gang of Four" (Jon, Moira, Lynn, and Ptrek) for creating this new forum. There are a couple of threads on Movie Houses that I hope will catch on here. These are the homes of cinema; where movies were made to be shown and to be experienced within a community of ...

Kirk Guard Theory

I always thought Kirk Kerkorian was the worst president in the U.S. As president of MGM, he was responsible for dismantling the once great studio and reducing the corporation to little more than a hotel chain.

Fayed Away?

...Since TCM doesn't have much access to her 20th Century-Fox films we are out of luck and she remains dormant. ... Well, "dormant" might be a little strong... after all, the Alice Faye DVD Collection was just released, thus keeping her alive (or available for resuscitation anyway). That ...

Ditched!

So I go to Manhattan and while I'm away everyone ditched me! But I heard you all giggling like Munchkins in the flowerbeds and have found you here on an entirely new site. It's me: ManInTaxi, aka Jack Burley, née Marco. I love this place. Who do we thank? Was it Jon Parker who forged the path? Big t...
