THE HOLLYWOOD THEATRE PRESENTS THE ‘80S ROOM: RARE FOUND FOOTAGE + EPHEMERA

Join presenters Stephen Kozik and Greg Weber Friday June 29th as they take a walk down memory lane and look at some of the weirdest, funniest and best television commercials from the 1980′s.

For the past decade Stephen Kozik has been scouring garage sales, estate sales, eBay and Goodwill Bins on a quest to collect and archive television commercials from the 80′s. When a dusty and beat up VHS tape of home recorded saturday morning cartoons or daytime soaps is found the hunt for precious artifacts from the decade of Reagan and Rubik Cubes begins. Each commercial has been carefully dated, categorized, titled and filed into his extensive catalog.

When: Friday, June 29th – 7:00 p.m.   
Where: The Hollywood Theatre
Admission: $5

Re-Run Theater Presents the Original Unedited 1978 Battlestar Galactica Pilot

There are those who believe that life here, began out there… Re Run Theater is very proud to present the original unedited 1978 ABC TV Premiere Event that started it all: Battlestar Galactica. Now, arguably third only to “Star Trek” and “Dr. Who” in popularity among TV science fiction series, here is where the story of space genocide, survival, political strife and the word “Frack” began.  After a thousand year war with the robot race of Cylons, the human race is duped into believing peace is at hand only to have their military fleet lured into an ambush and destroyed.

With their home planets devastated and only one Battlestar left to protect the remnants of humanity, the survivors are forced to flee into deep space, pursued by the relentless Cylon war machine.  Their last hope: find the legendary lost colony remembered only from ancient writings; a distant planet far out in the universe known as Earth.  Featuring an all star TV cast including Dirk Benedict (The A Team), Lorne Greene (Bonanza), Richard Hatch (The Streets of San Francisco) and Jane Seymore (Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman) and the same special effects and art design team responsible for “Star Wars”, the Battlestar Galactica pilot was unlike anything seen on TV before.

Although the main plot points are the same, the original show is very different from the beloved re-imagined Sci Fi Channel series of the last decade. This is the 70′s in outer space complete with alien disco singers (four eyes and two mouths!), Cylons that sound like Mr. Roboto, feathered hair and big medallions.  For the sake of authenticity and Re Run Theater’s fine tradition, we will be presenting this epic with a pre show and intermission of vintage 1970′s and early 80′s TV commercials.

When: Friday, June 29th – 9:30 p.m.   
Where: The Hollywood Theatre
Admission: $5
