Seemingly unrelated, in late 1986 my parents subscribed to Premiere Magazine. In its later years, the magazine became a trivial collection of gossip. But for most of its twenty year run the magazine had in-depth articles about films, film personalities, and the movie industry. Most importantly, it had full-page movie posters and artistic close-ups of movie stars.
What do the Niles Hotel and Premiere Magazine have in common? The third floor of the Niles was closed to the public, allowing my brother and I free reign of its thirty-or-so rooms. (Awesome.) One such room I used as a clubroom, called the BMW (my initials backward). Over the years I decorated the BMW's walls with cut-outs from Premiere. I began with just one side of the room, but soon had covered all four walls, the door, the closet, and parts of the ceiling. Just as my decorations were beginning to spill over onto the window blind, my parents sold the building.
I present below a collage of the photos my best friend and I captured of the room before taking down all those wonderful posters. (Click the picture to enlarge it.) How many movies can you name?
