Went home to St. Louis last week and heard the new Wehrenberg jingle while waiting for Fahrenheit 9/11 to start at Jamestown Mall 14. I thought it was cute how they tried to "remix" it and incorporate snippets of the original jingle into it. Truth be told, the jingle was pretty cheesy (as was the computer animated trailer), but at least they tried to pay tribute to a little piece of classic St. Louis film history. [thumbs up]

Are they still playing the purple-ish animated trailer with the jewels in the crown-W?

All I remember is spinning film reels, the "W" and the Crown in the Wehrenberg logo, and the remixed jingle. It was my first visit to a Wehrenberg since 1995.

Hello. Where can I get or download the GCC and Wehrenberg jingles? For that matter, the old AMC "No Talking, Please" as well?

I don't know -- but it'd be cool if there were an easy way to find old policy trailers, either on 35 or online.

Generic - Lights, Camera, Action!

What format do you have it in? I could possibly convert it and post a link.

I recently dug up this wonderful 3-year-old post from Kyle. I also found both the classic and new versions of the Wehrenberg intro theme, as well as a rare commercial, at the following link:

http://www.smick.net/notebook/2005/01/25/wehrenberg-theaters-theme-song/

Listening to it really brings back some memories, like seeing Star Wars in one of the tiny (by today's standards) screens at the Des Peres 4 Cine. Unlike other classic versions found on this forum and other sites, the 1964 version found at the aforementioned site is full and uncut, clocking in at 1:25.

Thank you, Ron, for the awesome link...and welcome to the Forum!

By the way, I saw Star Wars at the Westport Cine. Ever go there?

No, can't say that I have. My Wehrenberg experience was limited to Ronnie's Drive-In, 66 Park-In, Des Peres 4, Creve Coeur (where I saw The Empire Strikes Back), Ronnie's 8 and Kenrick 8 (all I can remember off the top of my head). I'm actually going to St. Louis this weekend, and I hope to check out Spidey at the Chesterfield Galaxy's megascreen.

Cool, Ron!

My Wehrenberg experience consisted of: The Cinema 4 Center, the Westport Cine, the St. Charles 18 (it was 10 when I first went), Northwest Plaza 4 (old) and 9 (new), Ronnie's 20 and, just one time, the 66-Park In. I went to Des Peres once. It's now got 14 screens.

I grew up in St. Charles, so it was mostly "St. Chuck" and North County for me. And since it's St. Louis...I went to St. Charles High School (class of 1982).

I went to the Galaxy back in 2005 to see Phantom Of The Opera. You're going to like that Mega Screen. But I highly recommend the Ronnie's 20 and the "Drive-In Diner" they have.

Be sure to give your impressions of the Galaxy when you get back.
