Rated PG-13

At my old theater, we recieved a fax from the home office with a picture of a marquee. They attached a nasty-gram stating that if anyone had a marquee that looked like this, then that theaters management would be in trouble! The marquee read: Erin Brockovich Screwed My Dog Skip!

The movie "Blow" made for very interesting marquee sayings. At the time it was often preceeded by "Josie & The Pussycats".

I posted this somewhere in here a few years ago, but my favorite was Stop Or My Mom Will Shoot JFK. Of course, it wouldn't fit, so I had to put Mom Will Shoot JFK. I took great pride in that.

This one isn't a theater marquee, but a sign for a video store. The curious use of Handel Gothic and its tight letter spacing makes me wonder what kind of movies they offer for rent.

For those who understand French;

This marquee is In Geneva, Switzerland:

The First row is the name of theater; LE PLAZA
The second row is the theater's company brand name where I'm working: EUROPLEX CINEMAS
And the thrird row is the french title of the movie: "CATCH ME IF YOU CAN"

Have you ever seen a theater bulding running to catch a guy ? [Wink] [Razz] [Smile]
