An advert of a restaurant in Wisconsin, a friend of me was there last year and gave it to me.

This is Minocqua, Wisconsin's annual ode to beef! Several business owners and organizations cook up 20 pounds roast beefs, then parade them to the local park, slice them

There is an actress by the name of Illeana Douglas. She's been involved in various aspects of "the movies" now for around 20 years, mostly acting, but occasionally producing and/or directing some projects.
She's currently participating in some internet-created "webisodes", and one of them are grouped together under the name, "Illeanarama".

Her IMDB details and if you go to the YouTube, you should get to a good segment of her webisode from a couple of years ago, and there is a prominent title, shortly into the segment, with the "Illeanarama" title rendered into artwork.

Family owned and operated since opening in 1965, this North Ridgeville, Ohio drive-in theatre is open daily from Memorial to Labor Day (weekends in April and Sept.) and prides itself on the fact that it often pairs first-run movies as double features.

Here's another "Rama" for you. Maybe. (Or maybe you already have it?)

It says "CasinoRama" here, but, it turns out, "Rama" is apparently a subsection of the town of Orillia, in Ontario, Canada. So ... not sure whether this qualifies.

Saw the car in this attached image yesterday. It was driving up the hill in my neighborhood, while I was heading down the hill. I stopped, turned around, and tried to catch it (going uphill, mind you, in my not-particularly-"muscle" car). Lost sight of it due to the hills and the curves, and so took one route with some visibility ahead, and did NOT see it ... so, went back, and took another twisty route further up the hill. By dead reckoning and dumb luck (and not turning down some of the other possible streets), I managed to spot it. Thank God they didn't park it in a garage!

Paul Rayton, Hollywood, USA, 21.04.2009
Wanted to include this picture of my "RAMA" to your page.

Thanks for your timeÖ.

While in Birmingham recently I spotted this. I noticed the SIGN*A*RAMA was arranged similarly to the one I sent you previously in Harrogate. I did some research and found it is a franchise and has locations all over the world. Their website is www.signarama.com
