75 Years of Superman Infographic

Dive into the many looks of the man of steel from the past 75 years. Check out this herographic from Superman Homepage called “The Changing Face of Superman”. Scroll beyond the image for a special surprise.

Back in the 90s Tim Burton was developing a Superman movie for Warner Bros. called Superman Lives. It was going to star Nicolas Cage and Sandra Bullock. The movie never ended up happening, but a ton of special effects and prep work was done for the film. Here’s a shot of Cage in costume.

What do you think? Shame this movie was never made?

80th Anniversary of the Drive-in Movie Theater

80th Anniversary of the Drive-in Movie Theater

In 1933 the first drive-in movie theater opened in New Jersey. The new movie-going experience quickly caught on with drive-ins numbering almost 5,000 in it’s heyday. Today, only a few hundred drive-ins operate in the United States and Canada.

Many of the remaining theaters are celebrating the 80th anniversary with special showings. Why not check out a drive-in tonight?

Here are some photos from the last drive-in my gal and I attended. It’s called the Starlite Drive In Theatre in Hamilton, Ontario. We saw Ted, a great movie to see at a drive-in.

It brought back so many great memories. The drive-in will always be a nostalgic summer night tradition for me. I hope they don’t completely vanish.
