East Side turkeys line up early at the Downer Theatre

The first movie doesn't screen until 12:15 p.m. today at the Landmark Downer Theatre on Milwaukee's East Side. Yet, at 9:15 a.m. this morning, there was already a line.

Not a line of East Siders, though. Rather seven, yes, seven turkeys who made their slow way across Downer Avenue to stand and hang out in front of the historic theater. 

The East Side Turkey is somewhat well known in these parts. He even has his own Facebook page.  But I didn't know there was an entire family. Much less, that they were movie fans.  

Movie fan, or not, enjoy the above photos. And, be careful out there. Downer Avenue has yet to post "Turkey Crossing" signs.
