 Item — Folder: 29. You Must Be This Tall: The Story of Rocky Point Park, 2010 (2014-19)
Identifier: 2014-19


he film that Michael Janusonis of the Providence Journal claims, "is not to be missed" is an exhilarating ride; a poignant and often hilarious look at one of New England's great landmarks. You Must Be This Tall takes you all the way back to 1847, to the early beginning of Rocky Point Park, then flies fast like a roller coaster to its current, demolished state. Along the way we meet colorful and insightful characters who rode the rides, who ran the rides, and who kept the park running for all those years. You'll see hurricanes and Presidents, the Yo-Yo and the Flume, and you'll just about be able to taste those clam cakes and chowder in the World's Largest Shore Dinner Hall. Full of special features, this two-disc set will fill you with nostalgia for the good ole' days at Rocky Point Park!
