A NOTE about the FESTIVAL -
Our 9th annual festival program was recently announced. Features will include Douglas Fairbanks in When the Clouds Roll By, Wallace Reid in The Roaring Road and Excuse My Dust, and Lon Chaney in The Phantom of the Opera. In 2005 some of the films will be shown in 35mm!

We mixed traditional favorites with excellent lesser-known films to present a wider variety of film experiences for our audience. We strive to keep the festival free and open to the public every year through donations as well as individual, business and corporate sponsorship.
