Yes I remember them.

The voice on the Odeon guy in the second video (about 5.00) used to really annoy me. The Dolby Digital ad to be on laserdiscs too.

I remember the Kia Ora ad, how curtains used to open at the cinema.

"I'll be your dog, I'll be your dog... woof woof..."

Those damn Bicardi ad's were always way too loud.

My local cinema still had an area for the orchestra until quite recently

I hadn't seen that particular ad, but saw similar 'no smoking' warnings. I used to wonder how a cigarette burnt up so fast.

Celluloid Screams in Sheffield did a half hour just of adverts from the 80s at the end of last year (plus ads, etc). It was brilliant. Would love to sit through a movie's worth of them... and then go home and watch all the movies

I used to love all those 70s/80s things including the Pearl*and Dean advert...

Remember most of those clips - some voiced by Michael Aspel.

Favourite ad was this - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJvL5pyNucg it looked so good on a really big screen, would love to see it in HD.

I also remember the 'Beware, Thieves are silent' snake promo, always used to hiss along to it, can't find it on youtube though.

I remember some of them and the Jet Set. They were always sailing off somewhere drinking Martinis.

Don't they show Pearl and Dean anymore? I'm sure I saw their intro not so long ago.
