Pillow Talk on the Big Screen

Unread post by texas gonzalo »

Last evening I had the pleasure of seeing Pillow talk (once again) on the big screen at a San Antonio, Texas movie theater. Texas Public Radio sponsored the presentation to a packed audience of at least 200. The theater is a bistro type theater where foods of all kind are served prior to the beginning of the movie. Small tables are in front of the plush seats. The movie was a film presentation. Although it was not the best of prints, the event was totally enjoyed by everyone. The audience was very respectful and reacted very appropriately to the actions in the story line. Noteworthy was the reaction when Doris says to Rock while dining "Texas must a beautiful place." When the film was over the audience applauded. Needless to say, this was quite an enjoyable evening for me and the audience. After the presentation staff members greeted the patrons in the lobby, and I commented to one of them that they should schedule "Love Me Or Leave Me" in the future. That's all folks!
Happy Days'

Thank you for your positive and uplifting message that Doris is still appreciated in theaters in America. There is so much going on now and so much competition. Thanks for sharing.

Texas, what a wonderful experience for you! I'm so glad you had this opportunity! :)
Were there any young people in the audience? I hope this kind of thing catches on (not only for Doris' movies, but also for other old movies), so that young people can be exposed to REAL talent for once!!
Thanks for sharing your experience with us. Have a lovely "Day"! :)

You really can't beat seeing a film on the big screen (as it was meant to be seen). In Belfast I have seen Man who Knew too Much; Pajama Game and Calamity. The latter two formed part of the Belfast film festival a few years ago (to packed houses).

A friend of mine arranged a showing of Pajama Game for his friend's 70th birthday at a little private theatre here (that can be rented for such events) and I believe after the screening, the film received a very loud round of applause, and rightly so!

Were there any young people at the showing of "Pillow Talk?" Yes indeed there were. I noted people in their late 20's and early 30's. Most interesting was that the theater was packed, and the late comers panicked when they noticed very few seats remaining. I can assure you that everyone had a great time.
Happy Days,

The Hershey (PA) Theater runs classic movies once a month over the winter.
On Feb. 12th, for Valentine's Day, they ran Pillow Talk! :D The place was packed. :D It was great. I sat about 7 rows from the front just so no one would sit in front of me.
