Reading though the 2001 A Space Odyssey thread something caught my attention, intermissions well I haven't seen an intermission projected here in the UK since 1995's 70mm presentation of My Fair Lady at Bournemouth's ABC screen #1, which ran for 2 hours 51 minutes.
Since then 1989's Born on the Fourth of July which ran for 2 hours 23 minutes.
Lawrence of Arabia re-realise 1988, 3 hours 43 minutes The Towering Inferno 2 hours 49 minutes.
With the introduction of laserdisc and DVD over the years some of the above titles I have seen in the cinema with intermission was kinder like whoa what's happening? You're dad says it's called the intermission now ran along and get some ice cream, chop, chop now.
Over the years I've slowly picked up a few likable classics with intermission re-introduced back into the films program for nostalgic reasons I guess.

I was looking at this above Intermission and remember seeing parts of this being played in the background of the drive-in in the film Grease 1977.
So how many films have you've seen with the intermission?
