    Cool! One of the greatest movies ever. Im actually dressing up as Frank Bullitt for a Halloween party in a couple weeks. Got the right brown tweed sport jacket and blue turtle neck Even got the correct Safariland #19 upside down shoulder holster for a Colt Diamondback

    So I went to the Bullett showing last night. The theater was nearly empty but who was there were old farts my age or older. It was an experience. I never really got the sensation of motion during the car chase like on the big screen. Now I have a 60" TV and it pales in comparison. I'm not young but I was only 8 when the movie came out and I have no recollection of seeing it in the theater. 20181007_184632.jpg 20181007_184612.jpg
    If you have the chance go and experience the movie. I know there are 2 more showings on Tuesday the 9th. Here is a little of the silly crap they were running before the movie which was followed by a 1/2 hour commercial for the new Bullett Mustang with Steve McQueen's son and grandkids in it. - Bill

    My theater was the same which was great. Felt like I was at my own private screening. For me I was only 4 years old when the original came out.
    Really enjoyed it on the big screen.

    Go see it if you get the chance!

    Never saw the whole movie before, just the car chase sequence. Movie came out same year I was born.

    Just got back from seeing it in the theater. They don't make them like that any more. Definitely got the sensation of motion during chase scene. Caught myself bracing for the jumps, lol.

    Very cool! Thanks for the heads-up. Never would have known about it otherwise!

    edit...Maybe only 6 or 8 people there.

    Saw it last night in the theater. Not many people also. I was born in 68 so I missed it the first time in the theater. I also enjoyed being in the car chase, especially the big theater sound.Four of us went including my friend Tony's young son Nick. He kept asking when is the car chase. We were all picking out all the cool cars we saw. A couple of 62 Buicks ,a 36 Packard ,brand new Camaros,and many more.Thanks so much for the heads-up. Tim
