KONG KONG '76 IS ON TONIGHT

Postby thomasgaffney on Tue Dec 13, 2005 10:59 am

KING KONG!

That's right! Dino's fabled 1976 King Kong with Jeff Bridges and Jessica Lange is on AMC tonight at 8:00 PM EST.

I didn't know where to put this, so I put in Coax since it's on TV. If someone wants to move it to Shamless Promotion, that's cool.

I should know better, but the brain is slow today (water main break - no water, no coffee). What's wrong?/What should I change it to?

The commercials last night during the Graduate advertised Dino's Kong. And if you go to AMCTV.com, you can watch a Kong 76 clip.

TCM is playing the original tonight - check your local listings for the time (looks like 5 pm for West Coasters, 8pm for the east, but I'd check).
