YUM! According to a Hostess Brands LLC executive, "Everything will be as delicious and fattening as it always was." :) I'm going to buy some as soon as they're back! What have you replaced your Twinkies with since they disappeared?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The domes may soon be history. I loved the radio promotion my old station did for the premiere of "The Last Waltz"--complete Thanksgiving dinners on fancy tables in the lobby for a bunch of winners! What memories of the Century Theaters do you have? http://www.mercurynews.com/real-estate/ci_23100098/
Cathy FanzoneI sat in the 3rd row to see JAWS and screamed Bloody Murder when the head popped out of the boat! Saw So Many movies there. ET, Close Encounters, all the STAR WARS and STAR TREK films... A lifetime of memories... :o(
Mariah Waitegoing to see star wars with my family (including my grandparents), and going to Chuck-E Cheese after.
Ted KopulosAs a movie critic since 1976 I've been there THOUSANDS of times. Was even Santa Claus at one of Syufy's holiday parties. Will miss the domes. Will especially HATE whatever they put in their place ... and the traffic it will cause.
Dan KindWatching all the disaster flicks of the 70's... The Towering Inferno, Earthquake, The Poseidon Adventure. Also, seeing Jaws was terrifying! My Mom took me to see The Godfather in the early 70's. Rocky and Star Wars was fun also. Seen many a flic at the Century's.
Noella AndradeIt was always fun to go new to us. Meaning more than 1or2 to see at a time playing. That way I got to see my movie and and my brothers got to see theirs.
Donald Benson · Friends with Ted Kopulos I remember when "Sound of Music" ran for a year straight in one of the domes. Also standing in lines that ran straight down the middle of the parking lot for mandatory blockbusters like "Star Trek V" ("Please, Captain -- Not in front of the Klingons.")
Dan KindRight... They used to play movies for a long long time. The Sound Of Music, Fiddler On The Roof, The Godfather. Months and months... Some over a year.
Brandy Masoni used to live right there moorpark everything right there walking distince im going to miss it and watching movies there
Ken StoutI remember seeing Earthquake, The Last Waltz. Towering Inferno, Empire Strikes Back, Black Sunday, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Let There Be Rock among others.
Brandy Masonthats going to sad to see it go and our memories are not there anymore
Ted Kopulos"Raiders of the Lost Ark" was the last movie to run over a year ...and at Century 21. 2001 was a mind-blower, especially since I was on 13 at the time. And I remember the DRESS CODE they had until about 1966 or 1967. And they sold slick, color portfolios for the movies that played back then.
Brandy Masonits been so long.i think it was happy feet was the last movie i saw there. with my mom,my sisters my dad and other people i cant rememeber who else was there its been a while
Ted KopulosNo, I think they have about a year to go. Odd, that an employee at one of the domes said they were being "upgraded". Yeah ... to a corporate traffic hog.
Jack Counts JrOMGosh! Many Memories....I saw so many movies there! Back when VCR's were not widespread and DVDs were still in the future. We couldn't wait to get in line for movies like Jaws, Rocky, Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, etc. It was a family event. Nothing like the big screen for big blockbusters! ;-) My favorite memory of the Domes is when our family and friends all went to see Star Wars. The theater was packed, of course, and my Mom (she passed in '10) let out a sympathetic cry when R2D2 got stunned by the jawas and fell over...LOL. Wow. I haven't thought of that in years...
Mitch SakoI can remember when it was just Century 21...and then suddenly, it seemed like they were on the way to building Century 99.....
Judy Dallojacono ReedI remember when Star Wars and the Star Trek movies came out....the lines were wrapped around the building.....I enjoy going there now for the first matinee at $6-$7...so worth it. :)
Ted KopulosI'll see almost any movie if it opens at Century 21 (or 22, the big dome) ... except Adam Sandler movies.
P!NK is OK with being told she was NOT PRETTY enough to be on the cover of any magazine. LOL--she just made it to People Magazine's Most Beautiful Top Ten! Also on the list: HALLE BERRY, JENNIFER LAWRENCE, ZOOEY DESCHANEL, and 75-year-old JANE FONDA! Did they get any of it right this year? is OK with being told she was NOT PRETTY enough to be on the cover of any magazine. LOL--she just made it to People Magazine's Most Beautiful Top Ten! Also on the list: HALLE BERRY, JENNIFER LAWRENCE, ZOOEY DESCHANEL, and 75-year-old JANE FONDA! Do you like what you see?
Dee DouglasI think that beauty is more than what is on the outside. I do think P!nk is just gorgeous physically, but I think that her personality, confidence, and loving heart make her one of the most beautiful women in the world. She is who she is and doesn't put on aires. Lol, I sure wish I could be 'Not that pretty' :) Carol SmithDon't knock my role model, Jane Fonda! Ken StoutWhat Pink does'nt have in looks she makes up for in talent and attitude.
"The Big Bang Theory" has just snagged ol' Bob Newhart out of retirement! My sons have become fans of "Newhart" watching reruns on MeTV, and we're big fans of Cloris Leachman on "Raising Hope". Are actors in their 80s the new hot thing?
André-Marié D. BondI love it!!! I loved the Bob Newhart Show and Big Bang. I'll be there on the edge of my seat. I miss Bob's dry humor, it would fit right in!! :)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ How's THIS for a science project?
I thought this was soooooo unusual until I realized that it's about the 5th ancient McDonald's burger to make the news in the past few years! This one is 14-years-old.
Almost everyone jumps to the conclusion that this 14-year-old burger is "well-preserved". The poor folks at McDonald's have to keep defending their 100% beef patties have no preservatives. The darn thing just dried out!
I'm so excited to hear that two great pals have been nominated for the Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame--SAM VANZANDT and DENNIS ERECTUS NETTO! Your vote will help them be recognized for their talent! Click the link to cast your vote by 6/30/13.
It's been a tough week with all the bad news. You can always count on a funny movie to pull you out of the doldrums--even if you're watching it in memory of the star...
My family and I just watched the 1964 movie, "Bikini Beach" in memory of Annette Funicello. We thought it was hilarious how Frankie Avalon's character was supposed to spoof the Beatles! Doesn't he actually look like young, unknown Elton John??
Frankie Avalon playing "The Potato Bug", spoofing Beatlemania in the 1964 movie, Bikini Beach. Doesn't his get-up make him look like then-unknown Elton John?
Dee DouglasMy two little dogs give me something to live for and get out of bed for every single day. They need me and give me so much! I love to play with them and they give me unconditional love always. I'm so very, very thankful for them!
Ax Day...LOL! I mean Tax Day! I hope yours are done and you're able to relax and enjoy a refund!
Do any of these 5 WISHES ring true for you? I get accused of the last one...
1) I wish I'd lived a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
2) I wish I'd had the courage to express my feelings.
3) I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
4) I wish that I had let myself be happier.
