I remember going to see the Transformers movie at the Wyandotte Theatre when I was a kid, and there were giant movie posters while I waited outside with my dad to get our tickets. I don't remember why the line was so long, but I remember looking up at posters that would probably kill someone if they fell, and I couldn't see what was holding them to the wall.
The Eighties had stellar style.
Seriously. I think we all wanted to look sci-fi for when the aliens showed up. And don't even tell me that the best parts of Unsovled Mysteries weren't the alien abduction and UFO stories.
