Interact with your favorite SCM authors, producers, directors, historians, archivists and silent comedy savants. Or just read along. Whatever.

OT: Oldest moive theater in the US comes down

Sorry about the off topic post here, but I am pretty sad about this. 10 minutes from where I grew up and learned my love of film.

Louie, don't let anything get away.
Under the floor boards, in the walls, the basement, attic...
There's just gotta be reels of film, posters, paper!
I'll be over with a rent-a-truck and we'll go pickin'!!!
