The movie “Jingle All The Way” starring Arnold Schwarzenegger was set in Minnesota’s Twin Cities metro area and filmed there at various locations between April 15 and May 10, 1996, including Bloomington’s Mall of America.

Schwarzenegger and co-star Sinbad – plus several of the film’s other stars – returned to attend the film’s world premiere at the Mall of America on Saturday November 16, 1996. By some accounts, the stars were met by a crowd of 20,000 that turned out to see them, the screening, and the mall’s annual Holiday Parade. The movie’s nationwide release was nearly a week later (Friday November 22, 1996).

Great ‘40s vintage photo! The marquee over the door reads: “RETURN OF THE VAMPIRE WITH BELA LUGOSI” which (according to IMDb.com) was released on November 11, 1943. The marquee over the door of the New Daisy Theatre down the street shows a Mae West film “THE HEAT’S ON” which was released on December 2, 1943.

Logan5 commented about Florida Theatre on Jun 10, 2016 at 12:02 am

It seems that the 121 N Palafox address is wrong. In the 1947 “Gone With The Wind” photo the two-story building that is now the ‘Methodist Children’s Academy at First United Methodist Church of Pensacola’ can be seen in the distance at 6 E Wright Street. The Nobles Building still stands on the east side of Palafox and is occupied by CTS America (180 N Palafox). The Florida Theatre would have been Immediately to the north at 186 N Palafox and in fact the building appears to still be standing there.

According to Pensapedia.com there was a fire at the theatre in 1944: http://www.pensapedia.com/wiki/Florida_Theater

Logan5 commented about Southbrook Theatre on May 21, 2015 at 6:53 am

There seems to be a bit of a conflict here between the Whitehaven Theatre (on Laudeen Drive in Memphis) and the UA Southbook. Both theaters are claimed as the last venue in which Elvis Presley saw a movie. An excerpt from the September 1977 issue of (City Of) Memphis Magazine reads: “It was Monday evening, August 15th, at the Graceland Mansion… the previous Wednesday he had taken a party to see The Spy Who Loved Me, the latest James Bond offering, at the UA Southbrook 4.” Incidentally, one of the few Memphis-are theaters selected to show the feature film “This Is Elvis” was the UA Southbrook 7 Theatre when it went into wide release on Friday April 10, 1981. Apparently the Southbook had expanded to 7 screens by that time.
