I do remember that scene, it was so cool. I would love to visit Coney Island one of these days

My brother gave me a life-size Zoltar fortune teller very much like the one in Big. The eyes lit up! It was very cool, but it gave my boyfriend the creeps, so he insisted I keep it in the basement. Eventually I donated it to a Children's Theater company. Anyway, I think it was Coney Island where Tom Hanks went....but not sure.

Very cool shot but slightly creepy. :)

Hilarious! What a great idea - I could just picture a "Psychic Mum" in our very home - can just imagine my late mum's responses "Today Denise you WILL tidy up the bathroom....what will people think?" lol! I am laughing! xxx
