Movie Ad of the Week: FIREBIRD 2015 A.D. (1981)

Hot on the heels of THE LAST CHASE and GAS, two other Canadian tax shelter movies released in 1981 and inspired by the energy crisis of two years earlier, the not very prophetic FIREBIRD 2015 A.D. unveiled its budget-conscious depiction of the future to the residents of Madison, WI on September 4, 1981. The second feature, EARTHBOUND, is a UFO comedy from the makers of THE OUTER SPACE CONNECTION (1975) and HANGAR 18 (1980), starring Burl Ives and Meredith MacRae.

Have not seen this in 20+ years, but still remember the awful theme song: "DVC! DVC! You can't catch a rabbit and you can't catch me! You better watch out cause five will get you ten and the Firebird's gonna rise again!"
