  1. I'd hate to see the original 1961 film version of West Side Story only be available on TV, video, DVD and Blu-Ray, and never, ever play again, even on occasion, in movie theatres.
  2. Wow! I never saw Charlie Chaplin's 1921 movie, The Kid. I've seen other films of his, however, such as Gold Rush, Modern Times, The Great Dictator, and Monsieur Verdeaux (which I didn't like much), and City Lights (which I didn't care for, either.). Gold Rush, Modern Times and the Great Dictator, however, were fabulous.
  3. I would still love to see TCM and Fathom Events do a 60th-year anniversary screening of the original 1961 film version of West Side Story sometime in 2021, even though I was there for both screenings of that same film here in Boston back in 2018.
  4. Most of the movie theatres here in the Bay State are open, with limited admissions, if one gets the drift, as well as the requirements for wearing masks that cover the mouth and the nose, but the few independent repertory/arthouse movie theatres here in Somerville, Brookline and Cambridge have not opened back up yet. Too bad, because those are the movie theatres that I love to patronize the most.
  5. My 2021 wish for Fathom Events: West Side Story-- (the old, original 1961 film version--i. e. a 60th year Anniversary screening.) Lawrence of Arabia (1962) Raiders of the Lost Ark (1982) Casino Royal (the original 1967 movie) The China Syndrome (1978) Bonnie & Clyde (1967) Saturday Night Fever (1978) The Other Side of the Mountain (1975) River Wild (1994) Davy Crockett ..1957 Old Yeller 1957 Fantasia (the original 1940 version) Fantasia 2000 The Battle of Algiers (1967) Hearts & Minds (1975
  6. I agree with many of the names on your list. I'd like to add the 60th Anniversary screening of the original 1961 film version of West Side Story for the year 2021 to your list, however.
  7. Hi, everybody! I just ordered the upcoming book "West Side Story: the Making of a Classic", which is slated to come out at the end of June of this year. I'm looking forward to reading it. Is anybody else on here planning to order that book, or already ordered it? Just curious.
  8. I remember the film "Thoroughly Modern Millie". It was a cool film.
  9. Btw, my name is Miki. I live in Somerville, MA. email is as follows: mpolumbaum406@comcast.net Movie theatres I frequent: Coolidge Corner Theatre, Brookline, MA Brattle Theatre, Cambridge, MA Somerville Theatre, Somerville, MA (in Davis square) AMC Theatre in Assembly Row and sometimes in downtown Boston
  10. Aha! This sounds cool. I live in Somerville, MA, and I frequent the Coolidge Corner Theatre in Brookline, the Somerville Theatre in Somerville's Davis Square, and I occasionally go to the AMC in Somerville's assembly Row, and even the AMC theatre in Boston. I occasionally go to the Brattle Theatre in Cambridge, MA, also. I, too love all the older classic films, especially those of the 1960's, and I have a soft spot for the original 1961 film version of West Side Story, which I see every time it comes to a movie theatre in our area, or is within reasonable driving distance from me. I n
  11. Oops--my bad! Sorry about this. My all time favorite movie is still the original 1961 film version of West Side Story. I'll leave it at that.
  12. Just wondering, because I haven't seen it on your schedule for quite some time.
  13. Dubbing was very common during that period, plus it's sometimes necessary to do so. Unlike many other people, due at least in part to my intense love for the original 1961 film version of West Side Story, the dubbing of Natalie Wood and Richard Beymer doesn't bother me at all.
  14. Thanks, Gershwin fan. I've never heard of, much less seen Mindhunter. I don't have a DVD player at hom. Btw, is Leslie Banks a he or a she? Just curious.
  15. My all time favorite movie, hands down and the tops for me: The original 1961 film version of West Side Story Other favorite films of mine in no particular order: Sound of Music Wizard of Oz Lady & the Tramp (the original) Lawrence of Arabia Dirty Harry (the first one) French Connection Lion King (the original) Bonnie & Clyde Midnight Cowboy Georgy Girl Easy Rider True Grit (the original) The Good, the Bad and the Ugly Gran Torino Goodfellas Godfather I and Godfather II The Graduate Tootsie
