People Noticed A Common Thread In This Photo Of A Movie Theatre Marquee, And 90s Kids Are Relating Hard
As the republic continues to crumble, nostalgia has never been more in.
This is exemplified by the theatre marquee at Edwards Cinema which features a list of movies that will have you checking the date to make sure you're in the right decade.
Devon Sawa—himself a 90s heartthrob—tweeted the image with the caption:
"Dear children of today: Like it or not, you're really 90s kids."

The films are still a little different than their original counterparts: Pixar's animation has grown by leaps and bounds since the original Toy Story's release in 1995, Aladdin is a live-action remake, This decade'sChild's Play revolves around technology rather than voodoo, and Men in Black now features a woman as the lead.
Nevertheless, the marquee had people hella disoriented.

@DevonESawa @grantwarkentin It's like 1997 all over again. All we need is torrential rain at the Glastonbury Festival and- ...oh.— Jay Bluff (@Jay Bluff) 1561570070
Some lamented that the nostalgia is actually a lack of originality.
@DevonESawa ....huh. We’re denying a generation their own formative pop culture experiences, instead forcing them… https://t.co/Op7Qk1kBj7— Asherd the D&D Character (@Asherd the D&D Character) 1561519298
@DevonESawa And they wonder why cinema is going down the drain. Nothing is new.— Katie (@Katie) 1561533298
If that doesn't overwhelm you, The Lion Kingwill be arriving to theatres next month.
