Angel, it's gone...
I was in a hurry at work and didn't read the previous posts on this - sorry :oops:

Hopefully the vid on the BBC film network will be available for those who are outside the UK, because I really want to see it.

Hugo wrote again to tell us about this:

I don't know if it might be of interest to fans of Jason Isaac's work but THE RAIN HORSE will be screening for a week at the Barbican cinema (in London) before THE READER from 9-15 January. More info is at http://www.filmlondon.org.uk/news_detai ... ewsID=1551

Best wishes

Hugo

It's nice to see that some threaters stl show a sort feature along with the mai film. Remember when we use to also have the News, a cartoon or two?

Now all we get is coming attractions (maybe) and commercials. Just like on TV And this we have to pay for?

Yeah, grannybear. My mom used to tell me that in the 30s and 40s for 35 cents (!!!), you got a movie, a short subject, Movietone Newsreel, a cartoon, coming attractions . . . and sometimes it was a double feature! Not only that, you could sit in the theater all day and watch all of the above as many times as you wanted to for that same 35 cents. Try that today and you'd end up in jail.

my Dad told me, when he was a child, it was only a nickel to go to the
movies, and yes, you could sit in the theatre all day, or night...
DAMN...LOL

Looking back over my posting I'm going to have to edit it more carefully. It drops letters and sometimes you get to the end of a line and it types right over the previous line instead of scrolling down to the next. I should bring it back for more repair but it's acting halfway decent now and I'm afraid to let them touch it again.

LOL--poor grannybear! (I thought you might just be still hung over . . . :-| )

I remember, back in the day, when matinees were . . . some unbelievably tiny sum of money, but before we went, we'd pop this massive quantity of popcorn, pour unconscionable amounts of butter on it, and tote it to the theatre in a big greasy brown grocery sack.
MMmmmmm.

--Oh, sorry--yes, thanks to both Char and Hugo, for keeping us in mind!

When I was young I paid 44 cents for a matinee and this was the adult price. You were charged the adult price when you turned 12. But as Helen8s mother said you sure got your moneys worth.

I'm dating (in years) myself.

Don't fret, gb. I neglected to mention that I, too, remember as a wee child all the extras we got. :oops:

At least I have read about The Rainhorse. And I am sure I saw some pictures somewhere on the web, but I can't remember where.
Oh well, I will have to wait a week more and then check out the BBC Film Network.

I hope someday it will come out on a DVD along with some other short films.
