General Cinema

If you are of a certain age, and went to movies in the 1970s, this video clip will bring back fond memories. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZVfA2tJRXc&NR=1 You Tube has a couple of clips of this bumper but this one has the best quality. It is the opening logo of General Cinema's Feature Presentation and it will transport you right back to your 1970's mall movie theatre. You can also find Loews Theatre's great Muppet bumper from the 1990s and the Regal Cinema roller coaster one (although that one always made me a bit nauseous on the big screen). If you want to read more about the history of General Cinemas and see some old pictures, you can check out their website at http://generalcinematheatres.com/ I can smell the popcorn and taste the Goobers just hearing their jingle.
