Sunday night Dallas screenings canceled at Texas Theatre
Too bad; that was fun.
It's true. An employee at the Texas Theater confirmed that their Sunday night Dallas screenings have ended because Warner Bros. asked them to stop for copyright reasons. The Observer reports that the theater was told to "cease and desist." The last screening was May 1.
That's a shame, because now that Dallas is being filmed again, the hype surrounding the dramatic '80s TV show was at a high. The theater's Sunday night screenings of old episodes were a fun addition to their usually-quirky lineup.
Richie Sullivan, a jack of all trades at the theater, said he's disappointed. "We were having fun with it," he said. "But, we were asked and we complied."
There will be something to fill the Sunday night void, but what exactly Sullivan said hasn't been ironed out.
I guess we'll have to start bidding if we want some Dallas nostalgia.
