1981 Flashback

Our mall had a 3 screen movie theater.  Screens 1 and 2 were small theaters, screen 3 was the large theater.

When my friends and I went to the movies there were three choices:

1. On Golden Pond - the classic movie with Henry Fonda, Jane Fonda and Katherine Hepburn.
2. Chariots of Fire - the movie that would win the best picture.
3. Porky's.

Guess which one we saw?

Guess which one was in the large theater?

The next morning I came down to breakfast.  My grandma was already awake.  She asked "What did you see?"

I'm 18 years old.  I'm legally allowed to watch Porky's.

But I also know better than to confess that to grandma.

I also know better than to say "On Golden Pond".  Because she will want to know all about Henry Fonda.

I say "Chariots of Fire - it was a movie about Olympics runners."

Sorry Tots.  If it's any consolation, I've never laughed so hard at a movie before or since.
