A film about a weird and wonderful double feature revival theater dedicated to 35mm & cinema since 1978 - and why it still matters.
859 backers pledged $81,570 to help bring this project to life.

Thank you for your patience.

Hey everyone,

 I know you all haven't heard from me in a long while and are all wondering what's happening with the film. 

As most of you know, I was fired from the New Beverly in October, and I have honestly been in a black pit of despair since then. 

I have been slowly emerging, but it has been incredibly difficult - especially when I am promoting a film about the place I was fired from.  But I have faith in the film, and it's aim to help other small cinemas,  so I am not giving up on it - don't worry. 

So, please extend me a small bit of courtesy on the time frame, but I apologize profusely, and if you still haven't received your CD, let me know. 

The DVD's are on hold for the moment - I am on unemployment and can't afford to have them made - but I promise that when I get back on my feet again, I will make good. 

If you'd like to watch the film online, you can here

But the film has been anything but idle! 

Since January it has played in several theaters all over the world, including the Film Archive in Germany, the Biograf Kino in Denmark (the worlds' oldest continuously running theater!), the Bloor in Canada, The Cleveland Cinematheque, The Denver Film Society, The Grand Illusion, Texas Theatre and more plus several colleges including Wellesley, Amherst, Emerson, UCSB and Victoria College in New Zealand.  

The film is available for screenings - so if you know a little theater near you that you think it would be perfect for, let me know. I am also still looking for a distribution company. 

Again, thanks to everyone for your support and patience.

      Can you please make the movie available for download on Vimeo? It's great that you've made it available, but because it's a private video, it won't play anywhere other than on my computer (none of the mobile or TV connected devices will play it). It would be great to be able to see it in a film theater, but I that's not going to happen any time soon, and I don't think I'm ever going to get my DVD, so I'd like to be able to watch it on my big television.
