Planet of the Apes in 35-mm">

Shout "Take Your Stinkin' Paws Off Me You Damn Dirty Ape!" when Texas Theatre Screens Planet of the Apes in 35-mm

You've been shouting it for years anyway.

The tantrum phrase has been helpful for: shutting down aggressive dudes at bars; gaining your own seat on subway travel; and pre-holiday shopping, from the Pepperidge Farm mall kiosk to the Honey Baked Ham pick-up counter. (Note to self: You give shitty gifts.)

Now you'd like to bring "Take your stinkin' paws off me, you damn dirty ape!" back home where it belongs: the movie theater cave.

Texas Theatre digs your hasty temper, so they're doing a throw-back screening of Heston's best work centered around a futuristic monkey-makeup planet where everyone speaks 20th Century English, the 1968 original Planet of the Apes.

The 35-mm reel of Heston's epic trip runs from August 1 to the 4.
