REMINDER: HEAR ME SPEAK THIS SUNDAY AT A CLASSIC MOVIE MATINEE RECREATION!
After a very successful screening last year, I've been asked to once again be a guest-speaker at the West Orange Classic Film Festival. On Sunday, January 25th at 2PM at the Essex Green AMC Dine-In Theater in West Orange, NJ I'll be introducing and doing Q&A for a special screening recreating a classic movie matinee! It will include vintage trailers, a classic Popeye cartoon, a chapter from a thrilling Flash Gordon movie serial, and the Laurel & Hardy feature comedy, Flying Deuces!
IMPORTANT NOTE: My screening last year (of Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein) SOLD OUT THE DAY BEFORE (the first and only time in the Festival’s history that that has happened). DON’T GET SHUT OUT. I cannot stress enough the importance of pre-purchasing your tickets, either at the theater box office or through Fandango. For the direct Fandango link click here.
EXTRA NOTE - Fandango only lists the running time for the Laurel & Hardy film (and they're off by 5 minutes - the print we're running is 70 minutes, not 65) but with the trailers, cartoon and serial chapter there's about an hour and 40 minutes of film fun, plus my introduction and Q&A afterward. Figure this will be a nice two hour outing for you and the entire family!
Now enjoy the trailer for this special presentation:
HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!!!
