A Look Back at Wehrenberg Theatres (Part Deux)

My friend and associate Travis wrote a piece a few weeks ago about Wehrenberg Theatres and his memories about the chain.  Although I am nowhere near the movie fanatic that he is, I too reflect fondly on the movie chain and days gone by.  Although my patronage has nearly ceased as I moved out of the market over a … More A Look Back at Wehrenberg Theatres (Part Deux)

Jurassic Park Electronic Tyrannosaurus Rex (Kenner, 1993)

As a 9 year old in 1993, I was the correct age for Jurassic Park. When you’re that age, anything involving dinosaurs is cool.
