I saw The Monster Squad at Showplace 6 on a weekday in late summer when I was a kid. I must have said something about the movie and thinking I'd miss it (it wasn't released until mid-August of 1987, which would have been just as school was starting), so I'm guessing I thought the clock was ticking. My dad loved movies, too, when we were kids. Not like some of your dads who showed you Carrie or whatever, he just liked going to the movies or making a bucket of popcorn at home and watching a movie with us.
All I know is that on a weekday in the few weeks Monster Squad was out, my dad took the afternoon off work - came home and got me, we watched the movie - and then he dropped me off and went back to work. I don't think he remembers this at all, but it meant a lot to me when I was 12.
