Most all diehard fans know that on June 21 there will be a special screening in the US of the Comeback Special taping.
Regal Entertainment in Denver, Colorado, is putting the show with outtakes out on selected screens that have digital projection and other advanced technology.
Regal first asked area radio stations to promote it, and those that did not Regal did not choose those theaters because of course this one time showing needs to be promoted bigtime.
Orlando, Florida, that I am close to, is one example. There are so many tourists that come here for Disney World, Epcot, Sea World, Busch Gardens, etc., that it would be an ideal place for a screening, but the local goldie oldie station TURNED DOWN the promotion of it, so Regal Entertainment went to two other cities in Florida
instead that are 4 hours away from me.
This is insane that certain radio stations won't promote this very special show!
I also contacted Hard Rock Cafe in Orlando, and because they have their own theater they cannot promote another theater. I saw the Comeback Special when it was first
televised in '68 on my regular size TV set It wasn't of course called the Comeback Special at the time; it was just "Elvis" and because it was right before Christmas, it was promoted as a Christmas special.
Well, everyone was blown away when instead of seeing him start a show like Frank Sinatra singing some Christmas song in a traditional style, can you imagine suddenly seeing that closeup shot of his face and those intense eyes and hearing, "If you're looking for trouble, just look right in my face..."
That was on a small TV set. What a thrill it would be to see that on the big screen finally!
Somehow we need to get the word out FAST that ANY Regal and United Artists theaters worldwide that have digital projection and whatever else is needed to run this special film and also find a radio station in the area that will promote it should contact Regal Entertainment in Denver,
Colorado, and DEMAND MORE SHOWINGS !
