Belated RIP: Dean Parkin, 78; his 2009 death didn't become known to film fans until last month. Under grotesque makeup, he was the title star of two of Bert I. "Mr. BIG" Gordon's 1950s hits: THE CYCLOPS and WAR OF THE COLOSSAL BEAST (sequel to 'The Amazing Colossal Man').

@loudersoft Yeah, great building, has the potential to be a primo music venue or Memphis version of the Belcourt, but it sure would take a lot of money and effort...
