I remember when it was first released in 1982 where I grew up...I may have posted the newspaper ad someplace here. Anyway - we weren't allowed to see it (we were all of 11 and 12 years of age)...even with a note from our parents (this theater in Reno, NV. was willing to accept that which is mindblowing) so we were "downgraded" to seeing...get this: TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE with MASSACRE AT CENTRAL HIGH.
Not that I complained, but I do remember seeing the packed crowds leaving the theater "NIGHTMARE" was in and they all seemed to have had a good time.
another random "streetwalk down memory lane" by me.
RIP "Sparks Cinema 8".
