March 2017

Attended the Plaza Playhouse Theater ... for the Elvis Presley movie, Jailhouse Rock. It was an excellent movie and great to see once again on the big screen. Also, before the movie started, there was a showing of early Elvis television shows like Elvis on Steve Allen Show, Ed Sullivan Show, Dorsey Brothers Show, Milton Berle Show and some other Elvis early stuff. This addition before the movie was really wonderful. A great way to celebrate Elvis's 82nd birthday which was on January 8th. Thank you Plaza Playhouse Theater.
