The Black Hole Theatrical Trailer (1979)

I remember after watching the Black Hole in the theaters for the first time, my Father took me to McDonald’s so that I could run off a little excess energy at the indoor McDonaldland playground. While I was happily climbing around the insides of the Officer Big Mac Climb-In Jail Playground…

…I struck up a fleeting friendship with two brothers that were doing the same. While we all imagined we were inside of the Millennium Falcon instead of Officer Big Mac they informed me they were going to see the Black Hole after they were done playing. I told them how much I liked the movie and even at that age I resisted spoiling the film for them but I did warn them how scary the towering robot Maximilian was.

I never met the two brothers again but I certainly hoped they ended up liking the Black Hole as much as I did.
