20 Years Ago on July 4, 1999 -- Fun on the 4th

July 4, 1999: For Independence Day, we inexplicably led with the South Park movie, heading a "Fun On The 4th" (and look at that headline case) mini-package of movie listings and tickets, and AOL Local's fireworks finder. (As I recall, most of the Digital City/AOL Local listings were pretty lame; it was human-created editorial content that was really, really thin--like, restaurant listings or events features for major cities with two or three items):

[Series note: In the late 1990s, I programmed the content for the home page, which relaunched with a new design on July 14, 1998. I printed screencaps and saved them. 20 years later, I'm scanning them in and posting them with a little commentary under the tag #20YearsAgoOnAOLcom.]
