December 22 – Happy Hour

1937 – The Lincoln Tunnel opens to traffic in New York City, connecting 38th St., Manhattan, with Weehawken, N.J.

From the Port Authority:

…The work of the sandhogs—as workers who dig tunnels are still colloquially known—was dangerous, claustrophobic and tedious. Just entering and exiting the tunnel was time-consuming. Crews entered air locks, one at a time, after which the doors at each end were sealed. An air pipe started hissing, and the men’s ears would pop as the air pressure climbed until it equaled that of the adjoining lock. The workers were then able to safely open the connecting door and crowd into the next section, where the entire ordeal would be repeated.

1965 – The First Space Rendezvous:

“Rendezvous was first successfully accomplished by US astronaut Wally Schirra on December 15, 1965. Schirra maneuvered the Gemini 6 spacecraft within 1 foot (30 cm) of its sister craft Gemini 7.

Lunch – October 20

1910 – The hull of the RMS Olympic is launched from the Belfast Harbor. This is the older sister to the RMS Titanic and the RMS Britannic. You can see her outline here, or take the trip to Belfast to the Titanic Belfast museum and see it in person (well worth the trip). The RMS Olympic was retired from service in 1935 after 257 round trips across the Atlantic.

Lunch September 22

1910 – Mrs. Violet Melnotte-Wyatt opens The Duke of York’s Picture House and is the oldest continually operated movie house in Britain, Brighton to be exact.

UPDATE: I was alerted to The Electric in Birmingham as being older. The Electric did undergo some troubles over the years and actually closed for a bit. However it did predate opening of Dukes by 9 months. The difference between the “oldest” and the “oldest continually operating
