The Black Hole

Last night the Arclight theaters in Hollywood
[Next to the wonderful Cinerama Dome]
was screening a 35mm print of the Black hole.
now I hadn't seen the film since
the premiere in 1979!
and I was really looking forward
to seeing it again on the big screen!

It was hard to not laugh out load...
Corny only begins to describe the movie...
The acting is bad and the script is worse!!!
and the sound was really bad on this print.
but all in all it was fun!
Here's an Ad from the Disney News 79'

Here's a shot, from the Disney Times newspaper,
of one of the Robot Guards in the film.
There's a silly scene where the Robots are having a
contest at a shooting range on the ship...
complete with twirling of the Guns back in their holsters...
The Roddy McDowall robot beats the Bad Robot...
and the Bad Robot
overheats/short circuits and faints!
how could you not laugh?
These next photos are from the
Premiere Party at the Century Plaza Hotel
Here one of the Robots Guard the doors to the Ballroom.
a little Meet and Greet with the
Robots and Humanoids
Annoying guest at the bottom of an escalator...
What Fun!
All the Robots and Humanoids actors
were Entertainers from Disneyland
wearing the the Movie Costumes

Last week the Arclight showed
20,000 Leagues under the sea...
Now that was a GREAT movie to see in the Big Screen!
and that was 1954!!!
Next week Mary Poppins at the
Pasadena Arclight...

OMG - How cool is that??? I have the movie on LaserDisc, watched it about 5 years ago, LMAO!!! In its defense, some of the space scenes are well done, if not a bit of a snooze fest. All in all a real stinker however. Love the costumes, you look like you had fun!
