Not sure when this aired exactly, but the movie Diner came out in March of 1982, so I would imagine that this wouldn't get to Spectrum until 1983, no?

ON TV - Subscription Television Chicago (1983)

Views: 2246

Here is a clip of some footage from ON TV Subscription Television, which was an early cable TV option in Chicago. (not sure if other cities had it)

I think this clip dates to March 1983, since Quest for Fire was not released in the US until 1982, so I don't think cable would have gotten it until the next year.
