Welcome!

Movie Marquee

Dear friends, welcome to the second of what we hope will be an annual gathering of classic Hollywood-era movie enthusiasts.

Some of us are watchers. Some of us are collectors.

We have assembled a wide variety of rare movies to be screened – Hollywood’s Golden Era, silent movies with live musical accompaniment, vintage television, and vintage animation classics.

And don’t miss our Movie Memorabilia Emporium! This year, dealers from New York, Boston, Minneapolis, Chicago, and other cities will bring you posters, books, DVDs, movie reels, autographs, cameras, and many other collectibles.

Two screening rooms will bring a wider variety of films to the schedule. Those who watch a silent movie may find a vintage TV show going on in the second screening room. We’ve tried not to have the films compete at the same time.

Having a hard time choosing which film to see? We’ve thought of that, too – some space in the schedule has been reserved to re-run a film if necessary.

This is a film festival for movie fans of all ages – and seeing movies with an audience is always more fun!
