Watching "Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines" on Film 4 made me flash back to the roadshow movie, not something which is often seen these days.
Lavish, lengthy, star-filled and with an intermission, these (usually) family friendly, monsters covered just about every genre from "How the West Was Won" to "2001: A Space Odyssey" via "Ice Station Zebra" and were probably the 50s and 60s version of "high concept" movies.
Sadly, they seem to have gone the way of double bills and continuous performances.
