So you think this is the first time it was slow. This is an excerpt from a distributor letter telling why people aren’t at the theatre. (1982)

Aliens, inter-planetary space travelers and homicidal maniacs are taking over our environment trapped inside the world of video. They enter our homes and hypnotically put our free thinking minds in a state of trance. A prisoner of our won environment we open the theatre section of the newspaper and what do we find? Nothing different than what we are experiencing in our own living rooms. Surrounded by modern technology we slowly become overweight and lazy. So why find a baby sitter and pay the high price of gas and rush to the theatre when we can sit comfortable at home? ( the above was from a 1982 letter )

To offset the above problems the distributor claimed to have a good line up of products to get people out and to the theatre.

What were they......
Here is their line up they were pushing for Showest 1982:
Irresistible
Body Magic
Purely Physical
Blondes have more fun
Peaches and Cream
1001 erotic nights
Hot Lunch
Fast Cars - Fast Women
Sex World

I have heard showest was more fun in the past is this why?

That's a great excerpt, dsschoenborn! The first paragraph could have just as easily been written today. The lineup of movies though... not so much.

That's hilarious- thanks for posting it!

we have slowed down but its the start of school around here and we still have superbad which has run its course and then some. Booked Stardust for a week to bridge between that and good luck chuck. Plus we havent had a kids movie since the Rat but now thinking this isnt really a kids movie at all! Tough September. at least its supposed to rain this weekend,
