    Well having only seen one of the series so far on the big screen of these reshowings, it was all worth it to see
    ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE last night! Utterly glorious in every way, it was a great experience. Bigger crowd than GF, and seemingly enjoying every minute, (Bonds "a slight stiffness coming on!" got a big laugh, among others!) And there was an eerie silence at that final scene! I shall be skipping DAF next week, but am determined to see as many of Rogers films as possible!

    I bet that's a real beaut in cinemas. I'm glad you got to attend it!

    Thanks @Creasy47, yes it was brilliant to finally see it in the Cinema! Felt odd as I watch it annually at Christmas! 🤣

    You and I both! I've only seen a few of the older ones in cinemas when I got to run the movie program at my college but OHMSS wasn't one of them, sadly.

    I'd love if these would play nearby; it'll never happen but I'd love to see a bunch of these on the big screen.

    Is this disappointing or okay?
    I always wonder if the younger generation (12 to 25 years) still likes Bond. Are there any younger viewer in the cinema? Apart from the ones who are going with their dads?

    I was shocked last year how little of my students (16 to 20 years old) know some of the Bond movies.
    Anyway, I would love to see some of the old movies on the big screen.

    Of the 3 screenings I was at thus far, there was no more than 20 people at them. None were young!!

    That's not much but is logical that a lot (of non-frequently viewers) will say that they can watch them on TV for free. However, nowadays a lot of empty seats is normal apart from big blockbusters in their first week(s). It is a bit sad (imo), that the younger generation isn't much interested in movies anymore. The prefer short tiktok videos or series at best... (At least my students)

    Don't know about elsewhere but here in Belfast the Odeon showings are on Tuesday nights. I imagine most areas are only showing them on quiet weeknights not premium weekend days. Is there a way to find the takings for the entire week's run of each film?

    Unlike in the US I dont think daily takings are made publicly available, any weekday takings are included in the cumulative figures after week 2, 3, 4 etc which these dont have.

    Yes, its Tuesday evenings here in Dublin too! Gave DAF a miss, hope to see LALD next week!

    Saw LALD today. The print was not as cleaned up as the others. Some shots looked good but others less so, maybe due to the way it was filmed.

    Also, there was a really odd edit in this one. When Bond leaves the Voodoo shop, Strutter goes “I got him, in my sights”, which was cut. Given the other language in the film which remained, this was very odd. Also due to the music cut, super noticable.

    How bizarre. Perhaps they erroneously edited that part because they thought it was voyeuristic? ;)

    Great viewing of 'Live and Let Die' last night, really enjoyed it, bigger crowd than usual too! Print was noticeably sharper too, though there were monents ( particularly the opening which were shoddy looking, which was strange!) And @Mallory was right, that scene with Strutter was missing, most odd!
    Always have a soft spot for LALD, ever since that TV debut, when it had a massive viewing figure!
    Great set pieces, one of the strongest set of villains, cracking theme song, and Roger slipping comfortably into 007 shoes! Speaking of '007' always thought it strange they use the number in the design on the back of the Tarot cards, kind of jumped out at me in the scene after Bond and Rosie make love!

    Saw 'The Spy who Loved me' last night! It was great to see it on the big screen, and the missus even joined me ( and said she enjoyed it!!) but I still dont rate it highly. Its langourous pace still bugs me, and I just dont like most of the characters, Hamlischs jokey music annoys too!
    Anyway, cant wait to see 'Moonraker' next week!

    TSWLM achieves the highest chart position so far, only just short of Goldfinger, but a better screen average due to less screens. Perhaps boosted by Fathers Day.

    Great viewing of 'MOONRAKER' last night, but jarringly, the lowest attendance I've seen thus far!
    (A lot of the regulars missing!)
    However didn't spoil my enjoyment of this ultimate guilty pleasure Bond. Fab print, and Ken Adams set design looked tremendous. Despite the low turnout, there was a big laugh for that final "re-entry" scene. Great way to end probably my most enjoyable viewing of these reshowings. Onto FYEO next week!

    For those of you in the New York City area, as part of their “1962-1963-1964” film retrospective, FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE and GOLDFINGER will be screened at the Film Forum. The screenings will occur sometime between Friday, July 22nd and Thursday, August 11th. I don’t see DR. NO listed, but that could be in error. Check back for exact dates and times.
    https://filmforum.org/series/1962-1963-1964

    JFK’s “Camelot,” the Cuban Missile Crisis, the March on Washington, the assassination in Dallas, and the Dual Brit juggernauts of James Bond and The Beatles: they were the years of bold new movements in art, photography, fashion, dance, design, and film. A movement in movie history that saw the last gasps of the Hollywood studio system, some of the best work of veteran filmmakers (David Lean, Bunuel, Kazan, Hitchcock), and a cinema re-invigorated by a new generation that included Kubrick, Fellini, Godard, Truffaut, Polanski, Demy, Leone, Coppola, Varda, et al.

    Presented in association with the Jewish Museum’s exhibition “New York: 1962-1964” and Film at Lincoln Center’s series “New York, 1962-1964: Underground and Experimental Cinema”

    'FOR YOUR EYES ONLY'
    Decent turnout for one of Rogers more overlooked Bond movies! Enjoyed this as much as 'Moonraker ' last week! Seemed to fly by, and the underwater scenes which @Birdleson alludes to as 'interminable' in another thread, didnt seem as bad! Oddly the one thing that kept distracting me was the zip on Bonds blue winter jacket, which has a large letter 'B' on it! Couldn't take my eyes off it!! Anyway, enjoyed Operation Undertow, onto 'Octopussy' next, my first cinema Bond, from hereon in I've seen all the films on the big screen before!

    OCTOPUSSY (1983)
    Great viewing of my favourite Rog Bond movie last night! The usual suspects attended, up to 20 patrons.
    Brought back memories of a hot Summer afternoon in 1983 in a packed auditorium!
    Print was a bit ropey in places, but still sound was terrific particularly in that fabulous pts!
    May give AVTAK a miss next week ( Or is it NSNA? Anyone know are they showing Connerys return?)

    @Mathis1 I agree, I went to OP last night and had an absolute blast. All the jokes landed and the stuntwork never looked better.

    No NSNA, EoN Bond only. I think the Prince Charles had NSNA as part of their own 007 season though. That was quite a few months ago.

    Alas not an all time high this week. A disappointing total (for me anyway, I think OP is great) with the lowest weekly takings of a Bond film to date, being just under Diamonds are Forever. My local cancelled the Sunday screening due to technical errors, so I went last night and this audience wont be accounted for. Maybe there were others cancelled too?

    Anyway, we’re now at the half way point (13 of 25) and in total, the takings for the 60th anniversary re-releases is £118,993, an average of £9153 per film.

    My hunch is takings wont pick up until Goldeneye.
