For some reason, the old General Cinema jingle popped in my head. It is still drumming away. For those unaware of what I am talking about, or those who remember, it was played before the feature presentation at General Cinemas From at least the late 60’s (possibly earlier although I am not old enough to remember) until the early 80’s. On the screen was a 2d animation of rolling movie reels on one side of the screen with the film going to the other side of the screen with It was revived about a decade later as a nostalgic opener to an animated band of popcorn bags and sodas playing a different song.
But it was such a catchy tune. a drum rythim (ta…ta…tatata) that paused for three quick guitar solos. Well, General Cinemas are long gone from Houston.
Anyone know anything about this tune? Its history? Does it have a name? Or was it just a corporate jingle.
