Monster-Rama found by Richard M. Morse
"Psychedelorama!!!" It gives appearances as being from an old William Castle horror film, "The Tingler", from 1959. He loved to create new "stuff" to hook you in to come see his schlock movies ... At any rate, the Filmforum Theatre in NY is running some older William Castle movies, including "The Tingler", and this is part of their ad. But I'm not sure whether Psychedelorama is an original thing -- it is not mentioned in the IMDB listing -- or something that Filmforum cooked up. This is what they say in their text about the show: "the screen’s very first acid trip, experienced via our own patent-pending PSYCHEDELORAMA!!! " If it is their own creating (hence the term "patent pending", it may be a new one they added to hype the screenings. So there you are. That's about all I can tell you about it... But it is a "Rama"! Found by Paul Rayton 01.09.2010

Wein-O-Rama was founded in 1962 in Cranston, RI and, other than the prices, very little has changed since that day.

And what’s a weiner? It’s smaller than a hot dog with cut (rather than tied off) ends and served in a steamed bun topped with mustard, meat sauce, chopped onions and celery salt. Delicious (but don’t look for one outside of Rhode Island)!
