2015: A Look Back (for “At The Matinee” and “Silver Screen Reflections”)
Vintage “Tivoli” Ticket booth outside of the Weinberg Center for the Arts (originally taken in November 2015).
Well, everyone- it’s been another successful year for my two classic film and television blog sites, “At the Matinee” and “Silver Screen Reflections.”
Highlights of 2015 (for both sites):
–A retrospective on the Majestic Theater in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania and their classic film series
–Jon Stewart and David Letterman’s fond farewell to late night television
–The creation of the companion site to “At The Matinee,” “Silver Screen Reflections” (originally created as part of the Online Journalism class at Hood College)
–Turner Classic Movies’ “broadcast premiere” of the once-lost Colleen Moore Vitaphone film, “Why Be Good?”
-The “72 Hour Film Festival” in Frederick (highlights and results)
–The return of classic films at the Weinberg Center for the Arts (formerly known as the Tivoli Theater) in Frederick, Maryland
-Two articles that were originally written as part of a group multimedia blog site (for the Online Journalism class at Hood College), with two fellow “friends of the Matinee:”
–The Weinberg Center/Flying Dog Brewery cult film series (“This is Spinal Tap”)
–The upcoming Marx Brothers double feature screening in January (“A Night at the Opera” and “Duck Soup”), including several testimonials from the staff and management of the Weinberg Center for both aforementioned articles
There will be more in store for 2016:
To all fellow “friends of the Matinee,” thanks for reading! There will be more articles (for both sites) coming soon.
Here’s to a prosperous 2016, enjoy the rest of the holiday season and cheers to all! “Let’s Movie!”
