Look what happened last week at Rialto Cinemas Elmwood on College Avenue!

A young man named Zane asked if he could use the movie theater’s marquee to ask his gal to the prom.

“We couldn’t resist this John Cusack moment,” said Melissa Hatheway who works for Rialto.

Did Katie say yes? Leah Garchik in the Chronicle said she did. We say, “Awwww.”
