|Theatrical Movie Poster (1990)|
The film was released by New Line Cinema on March 30, 1990. The reason I know this was because when I was 16 years old, my first job was working at the now defunct Syufy Century Alamden Movie Theater. My first day was Friday, April 6, 1990. We had it on screens 3 (which was our main theater), 4, and 5. It was hilarious to see these 5-10 year old kids coming out of the theaters and kicking the hell out of each other. Awww......the innocence of youth. The movie was made looooong before CGI so the animatronics were made courtesy of the Jim Henson's Creature Shop. The film's budget was only $13.5 million but it ended up grossing $135,270,000!! Very impressive indeed!! Two sequels followed and in 2007 the turtles made their return to the big screen in the computer animated film TMNT.
Tonight was a blast! We had a great crowd tonight, considering it was a Thursday night! The film will be shown again this Saturday night, March 17th at midnight! We'll have more prizes to hand out, maybe some more pizza, and we'll also be having a TMNT van outside for all to take pictures in! So don't miss out on all the fun!
