"Remembering Playland" documentary
5 November 2010 | by mg1626See all my reviews

Great documentary. One hour in length. All about the history and love of the "Coney Island" of the West. Lots of great footage and photos. Much of the footage and photos were never shown in public before. Many, many interviews and memories of Playland-at-the-Beach. Also plenty of the history and construction leading up to what became Playland-at-the-Beach in 1928. Fabulously well done pic. If you can, find a showing in a theater and see it on a big screen. But if it is not playing anywhere near you, purchase a DVD for yourself, your parents and your grandparents!!!!
