Our feature presentation

I can't count the number of times I was dropped off at a multiplex cinema as a child to watch a matinee that was preceded by the now-defunct General Cinema Corporation's "projector dots" jingle. Sure it's simple, but nearly three decades after they quit using this 1977 clip, I sometimes hear its ear-wormy jingle in my head when I can't sleep.

Here's a history of General Cinema from Pleasant Family Shopping via MetaFilter.

I forgot about that. Thanks brings back memories of Meyerland Plaza walking to the movies and staying all day listening to that.
