Sequential Movie Titles

We play this game when driving by the local GoogulPlex – read out movie titles that are above each other on the marquee (it works pretty well looking at offerings on the Guide on your cable box, too). Usually the offerings are only moderately funny, or you have to work at them. Rarely do you achieve the greatness of one preserved in one of those National Lampoon books I have:

Alien
Meatballs
Escape From New York

But yesterday I saw a wonderful triple play at the theater on my way home from work:
Her
Nutjob
Jack Ryan

A few years ago, I saw

Ghost of
Obsessed
Star Trek

Not quite the same thing, but I recall a theater in Paris advertising Steven Spielberg’s Hook based on two well-known stars who were listed on the marquee as:

Dustin
Hoskins

and

Bob
Hoffman

And my favorite

I don’t know if it has happened but right now you could do

That Awkward Moment
Captain Philips
Frozen
Inside Llewyn Davis

A multiplex I used to go to had one of its theaters right next to the restrooms, and all the signs used to be at the same level and size. So when the movie “Other People’s Money” was playing, the signs read:
“Men – Women – Other People”

On another visit, I saw:
“Men – Women – Batman”

And so far, no one’s mentioned one of the best, from one of National Lampoon’s True Facts books:

THE FLY
GODS MUST BE CRAZY
ALIENS

A couple of decades ago, the art house near my apartment had:

Hold High the Red Lantern
Until the End of the World

But playing a bit loose (though that happens on marquees) since the titles would be

THE FLY
THE GODS MUST BE CRAZY
ALIENS

Seems unlikely, even with the looseness, to have happened since The Gods Must Be Crazy came out in summer 1984 and the other two in summer 1986. So, if it was just made up I demand titular rigor.

My fave:

Se7en
Clueless
Showgirls
Leaving Las Vegas
To Live and Die in LA

TGMBC played for over a 100 weeks at a local theater here. (And I’m not talking about midnight shows.) Not a problem.

GREASE
HAIR
SHAMPOO
HAIRSPRAY

Best one word title one ever.
