MOVIES! MOVIES! MOVIES! - BURRILL LAKE OPEN-AIR THEATRE MOVIE GUIDES - PART 1 1960s

MOVIES! MOVIES! MOVIES!

BURRILL LAKE OPEN-AIR THEATRE GUIDES
FOR ALL YOU MOVIE BUFFS OUT THERE!!!!!
   


PART 1
 1960s

Here is a collection of movie programs that I have kept since a kid of the long gone movie theatre,

BURRILL LAKE OPEN-AIR THEATRE, opened in 1946......demolished in 2000... but lives on in cyberspace on the internet at:

I have so many of the program guides (about 100!!) I have decided to put them into 3 Parts covering the 60s, 70, 80s and 90's, for easier tracking. Better than one BIG continuous scroll!!

I have tried to keep them in order which is practically impossible as I'm realising films at the theatre were plucked from any year of release particularly in the 60s. The popular movies were also repeated.

I've tried to keep them in a monthly order, though some of the dates at the beginning and ends of months sometimes do not work out. What helps sometimes is when the next month's attraction headings get mentioned.

The owner also ran the Milton School of Arts Theatre for a period of time with the same films on different nights.

As you gaze at the programs and the films that are advertised, they will sure bring back memories of those films to you no matter where you are on this tiny planet... (check out the admission prices!!!)....so we need an opening title....


On the High Intensity Screen, eh??? Good publicity.

So you just start scrolling down, seeing if any childhood memories come flooding back from when these movies were new and played around the world, entertaining us all.

Start playing the game of

NOW HAVE I SEEN THAT MOVIE or
have I even heard of it??





       



 




I think that should be "THE HAUNTING" not "THE HUNTING"

                                                 WHEN THE BOYS,








 








 
 







 



 









































And so ends PART 1

Trying to figure dates aligning with months and movie releases
was just a complete headache!!!!

What is now believed, is that during this period of movie visiting, movies from
the 1950s/60s were put on at any time... an old equivalent to a video shop choosing 
movies to hire...!!!! 

But an occasional new one thrown into the mix....

Anyway, keep an eye out for PART 2 - THE 70s
- WHEN MOVIES BECAME "R" FOR RACY AND "JAWS" MEANT SOMETHING ELSE.... OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT....
