Private showing of Blazing Saddles
« on: August 13, 2019, 04:50:20 pm »
 
If anyone is going to be in the area on Dec 8 there is going to be a private showing of Blazing Saddles, the uncut version at the oldest theater in Lincoln at 1pm.

Yer all invited, movie is on me, Rita just set it up.

We expect it to be the old west version of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, dress up, toss dimes and have fun.

It's my birthday/retirement party.

That sounds awesome Del!  Our scenarios for the July Blue River Regulators shoot were based on Blazing Saddles. I hadn't watched that movie for at least thirty years, but just this last Friday night caught the "cut" version on TV. That is some funny shit! I can't believe how sensitive/lame our society has become(present company excluded), that movie could NEVER be made today. You probably better keep the showing somewhat under wraps Del, or there will be protesters outside the Joyo on the 8th!

As a side note, my Mother and Stepfather Don Montgomery owned/ran the Joyo for about twenty years. Don worked there as a teenager and bought an ran the theater mainly as a hobby in the 1980s.

Congrats.

Happy Retirement! I don't think I can make it, but I do have the DVD, and will watch it by proxy.
