This summer will make it 30 years

Since “National Lampoon's Vacation” and the family truckster arrived in 1983.

What would be a fitting way to note the anniversary? Other than totally ignoring it, of course.

Where were you in 1983?

30 years ago on the newsstand

Not everyone believed it in 1983.

Next year’s movie anniversaries include

“Local Hero,” from 1983.

It's probably not fair to judge from just a preview. But does anyone else suspect the new Matt Damon flick is a “Local Hero” rip-off?

From 1973, there's “American Graffiti.”

“…and a pint of Old Harper's.”

And from 1993, there's “Groundhog Day.”

“Don't drive angry.”

Tonight’s KSPS movie: “Local Hero”

It's not for everyone. But among its loyal fans, this film is beloved.

And unlike most stations, Channel 7 could be trusted to not ruin the touching ending by cutting in with blaring promos or going to a commercial two seconds into the credits.
