The 30 Day Film Challenge Day 6

I was going to double up on the challenge like I did yesterday, but I really wanted this entry to stand alone - a film from my childhood.

There are many films from my childhood. Most of those are Disney films. But there is another film above all others that stands out, because it's the first film I can remember seeing in a theater.

What is now called the Victoria Theatre in Dayton used to have the slightly shorter name of Victory Theatre. And back in those days, they would play "cult" films. When I was about 5, they played Yellow Submarine. The experience has never left me, since my two major claims to fame are Beatlemania and movie-mania.

This clip goes up to about where the song starts, so I'll pick it up from here.

In the town, where I was born, lived a man, who sailed to sea ...

You'll now have that song stuck in your head all day. You're welcome.
