Hey, Syz, when I printed this I got the tiny center of it blown up- a giant "Down 1,2,3,4,5", but I pasted the PDF into Word and it was fine. Thanks again.

It's the old problem with some PDFs.

When you print, click the "Fit" button on the preview.

Yes, & yes: 12A, 19A, 24D, 26D, 39D.

Not totally clear on the theme answers. Some movies & other misc.
10D ? Most common word (unchecked M) indicates various hotels & restaurants.

Any ideas?

Yeah, that's the only one I had to look up. Loads of hits for that resort, but that doesn't seem as if it would be common knowledge. Perhaps to New Yorkers? :)

7d is a New York thing, but most Americans of a certain stripe would know it.
