WMAQ Channel 5 - Movie 5 (Ending, 1989)

Views: 2349

Here's the ending for the Movie 5 presentation on WMAQ Channel 5. (which I believe was the same sequence as the opening) You can see colored footage of old movies and stars such as Charlie Chaplin.

Wasn't this used as the opening for other movie shows in other cities? How old is it? (i.e., when did they first start using it?) Anyone know?

This aired on local Chicago TV early Saturday, January 14th 1989.

WMAQ Channel 5 - Movie 5 - "The Ape Man" (Opening & PSA's, 1988)

Views: 3158

Here is the opening of a late movie feature of "The Ape Man" on WMAQ Channel 5. It starts out with some kind of time-filler - a Channel 5 logo over some rock music which goes on for over a minute, and then the opening to the "Movie 5" begins - I've seen this opening before used in New York so I think it was a national thing.

Then, strangely, between the Movie 5 opening and the start of the film, they show the following PSA's:
