This short animated intermission trailer, Let's All Go to the Lobby, is quite an iconic time capsule
29 August 2010 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

I first saw and heard a portion of this now-iconic intermission trailer that sang about "to get ourselves a treat" on AMC on Saturday afternoons in between features and various shorts back in the mid-'90s. I didn't even know this was listed on IMDb until I accidentally stumbled unto a listing of this on wikipedia after the listing for the feature Grindhouse had something in the category of this trailer called "theatre snipes" in the blue print in the article that allowed you to click on to go there. Produced by animation legend Dave Fleischer from the Filmack Studios in my birthtown of Chicago, Ill., this is such an iconic film that it has been deemed "culturally significant" by the Library of Congress and put in the United States National Registry preservation list. It's also been parodied quite a bit. So on that note, "Let's all go to the lobby/ Let's all go to the lobby/ Let's all go to the lobby to get ourselves a treat..."
