Movies with Black Bars!?!

I just saw Shaft (2000) and he goes into a black bar. Can anyone think of other movies with black bars?

I think the title of this thread may be a little too clever for letteroxed fanatics, so kudos to you and your dvd wit.

French Connection, Coffey, and To Live and Let Die, off the top of my head.

How 'bout 48 Hours

One can also be relatively certain about the predominant racial and ethnic makeup of the customer base of the bar owned by Marcellus Wallace in Pulp Fiction, even though it was only shown during off-peak hours.

And here I thought this thread was about someone concerned over black bars appearing.

As for black bars, doesn't Samuel L Jackson take De Niro to a black bar in Jackie Brown? I dunno its been awhile since I watched (perhaps too long)

Didn't Animal House have a black bar scene?

It's been forever since I've seen it, but I think it did.

Damn, I popped in this thread to make a sarcastic remark about Animal House only to find that a) this thread already IS about that type of black bar, and b) Alien Redrum already beat me to the punch.

while letterboxing came into mind, I was actually thinking of the orange 'censor' bar in the R-rated edition of "Storytelling"

I've read that previous to the introduction to cinemscope in 1953 there were no black bars in movies.
F***ing racists!
