Hey Folks! It’s Intermission Time! classic jingles for all

Step right up to the world of classic movie theater intermission messages – a place filled with sweet and savory treats, sticky fingers, and a hint of indulgence. Here, you’ll be transported back in time through the sounds of big-band jazz, psychedelic rock, disco, and orchestrated pop, all in the name of your satisfaction! Hey Folks! It’s Intermission Time! is a cornucopia of sounds and music to will delight movie lovers of the old days.

Step into the enchanting realm of vintage cinema intermission messages, where sweetness blends harmoniously with savory, a strangely sticky allure beckons and a hint of indulgence tinges the atmosphere. Here, you’ll discover a captivating medley of bygone eras, including the vibrant melodies of big-band jazz, the psychedelic rhythms of rock, the glitzy disco adorned with sequins, the pristine purity of orchestrated pop, and much more. All of these elements unite with a singular purpose: to ensure your contentment and pleasure.

Feeling parched? Picture a lively jazz trio propelling the vocals of Joanie Sommers, the jazz/pop sensation renowned for her 1962 hit “Johnny Get Angry,” as they infuse the timeless tune “Makin’ Whoopee” with new lyrics designed to entice you with the effervescent allure of Pepsi. In another scene, an animated figure reminiscent of a Paul Klee artwork embraced by bebop culture delivers a beatnik-infused proto-rap in praise of Dr. Pepper. Amidst these musical delights, a smooth ode to Orange Crush flows effortlessly, accompanied by the rhythmic sways of a captivating piano performance.

Growing hungry? Enter the world of “Let’s All Go to the Lobby,” the anthem of intermission cinema, a clip from the 1950s enshrined within the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress. This timeless scene showcases animated treats harmonizing the snack-centric composition of award-winning soundtrack composer Jack Tillar, which playfully borrows elements from the melody of “For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow.” One can’t help but wonder, is there a hint of whimsical cannibalism as confectioneries sing of their own consumption?

Envision, if you will, the fantastical explosion of vibrant hues that envelops you in this alternate dimension. What if this kaleidoscopic madness characterized your everyday reality? Imagine if popcorn pop music and candy-counter escapades took precedence in the daily news, while your world embraced a warm, slightly blurred 35 mm dreaminess, accompanied by a euphoric rush of sugary delights. Such a notion is tantalizing, indeed. To begin your journey, we present your accompanying soundtrack.
