Citizen Kane

Saturday, April 24, we’re going to sit down and try to figure out why a dying man’s last words were “Rosebud”. Yes, Orson Welles’ directorial debut is going to be our presentation. This screening is part of a mini-series, as our next screening will be Manx, David Fincher’s film about the man who wrote the… Continue reading Citizen Kane

Shark Tale

Because we all need to come to terms with our self-image, this Saturday 10 April, we will be screening Shark Tale. This was Dreamworks answer to Finding Nemo. Instead of a heartfelt story about an adult coming to terms with sadness, death and loss, we have the story of a self-obsessed teenager. Still, I have… Continue reading Shark Tale

Hello 2021.

Last year, just about all we managed to do was to do the tech run in March. And then the curtain fell. This year, we will be running again. Robin is back, and I’ve added some long-wanted atmospheric lights to the screen. We’ll probably have a tech run in a couple of weeks, and then… Continue reading Hello 2021.

Probably down for a while

Obviously, it’s a different world now than even 1 month ago. So it looks like we’re going to be closed until at LEAST July.

And of course, afterwords we… Continue reading Probably down for a while

Test Run, Saturday March 14

We’re going to set up the theater March 14 just to make sure everything’s working. I’m considering running my favorite Laurel and Hardy film, Sons of the Desert. We probably won’t have a lot of fancy setup for concessions, but if you want to pop over, we’d be happy to see you. Show should start… Continue reading Test Run, Saturday March 14

2020, the year before we make contact

I know it’s only February, but I’m already planning on the next season. I’m doing some cleaning and maintenance tasks this weekend, and if we get a warm day soon I may try a dry run. Are there any suggestions for movies to show this year?

Winter is here…

Or at least enough winter that we’re at the end of the season. So I’ll be wrapping up equipment and doing maintenance until next year. If I don’t see you, have a nice Thanksgiving, a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year, or whatever set of holidays you prefer.
