Is anyone else here mildly curious about the movie "Adventureland"? If you are a current or former DPWWK employee and haven't seen the ads, you might want to do a quick search to look at the trailers. Yes, it appears to be a comedy directed at a younger demographic than myself, but I have to say that the topic matter (college graduate takes summer job at local amusement park in 1987) is rather intriguing. Some of the scenes in the trailer are pure gold, especially the hiring scene, the hurling scene (made me want to call out a 10-code), and the paycheck scene. If nothing else, these guys have struck upon a subject which has been pretty much untapped until now...what it's like to work in an amusement park.

I would think this belongs in Industry Disscussion because it was filmed at Kennywood.

I saw it last night, and it was great. Even though the film was based in 1987, they still capture what it's like to work in a park pretty well.
