The Time Tunnel Garage has produced a fantastic find. A large corrugated box of movie newspaper ads from long ago have appeared through some kind of worm hole or fluke in the Garage Time Particle Mass mechanism. THE FUTURIST! found it sitting atop the snow blower. Above is a New York daily newspaper advertisement for a film entitled RICH KIDS (1979) and it premiered at The Baronet (A Walter Reade Theater) in Manhattan at 59th and 3rd. The theater and its sister movie house (next door) The Coronet are no longer in existence. THE FUTURIST! recalls this film as being quite good. It had a fantastic cast of character actors (including John Lithgow and Paul Dooley) and two great young leads. It was produced by Robert Altman. It concerned the friendship of two Manhattan youngsters who find a lot in common when each of their well-to-do parents find their marriages dissolving. It has that flavor of "shot in New York" authenticity that the public is not treated to anymore. Why isn't this movie on DVD? Will THE FUTURIST! understand the eccentricities of his Time Tunnel Garage? What is for lunch tomorrow? So many questions.
