Hey! Thanks so much, I’m real glad you like my blog! :) I’m real jealous of all the people who grew up with universal horror. I never watched any horror until I was 13/14. =/
Also, I’m sorry I haven’t gotten to your other questions yet. I’m in the process of moving, but I swear I’ll answer them!
Universal are planning to demolish the famed Stage 28, used as the theater set in 1928 Phantom of the Opera film. It is the oldest film set in the world and has been used in dozens of films, and a bunch of people are trying to get is saved as a historical landmark.
This stage is a piece of cinematic history, as well as horror history, and future generations deserve to see it in all its glory, I myself would like to see it one day.
If you can spare a moment, sign these petitions. There’s no charge, no newsletter, no account to be made, just your name and your e-mail, and you can save a piece of the Universal Legacy.
