I just got back. That was fun, especially seeing Kong's face fill the screen. While obviously stop motion, the effects held up pretty well some 87 years later even on a big screen. And the dialogue is wonderfully of its time.

Only about 8 people in the theater, but it was one of the smaller ones. Ticket sales had been low even before the seriousness of Covid-19 was known. There didn't seem to be more than a dozen cars in the parking lot of the 12 theater multiplex.
