Mickey’s Audition aka Mickey’s Big Break last appeared at the Main Street Cinema in the 90s. Now without fanfare, it’s finally rediscovered.
The concept is a bit strange. Pay a hundred bucks for the right to dress up in nice clothes and go to a theater to watch a full orchestra play background music from cartoons. It’s even crazier when you’re a theme park fan and you spend half the time relating various peripheral melodies to your […]
Try to imagine, just for a moment, a giant space monster punching Father Time right in the teeth. A punch hard enough to jar loose sixty years. A half-dozen meaningless decades.
