Big Weekend

On the first evening of the film's release in 1969, 17-year-old me sat in the Fox Theatre's orchestra section to watch "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid." I thought of my strong desire to operate the projectors in this movie palace, Atlanta's largest and finest. It was a personal goal and seemingly uncrackable.

More than four decades later, including 1978, the year I gained entrée, Butch and Sundance and the Fox and I reunited, with me looking on, all comfy from the projection room stool.

Big weekend.
