Over the past year, the Adirondack Film Society has been actively involved in the initiative to save small neighborhood theaters in upper New York State.
We view movie theaters as vital institutions in the cultural life of a community, and will host a discussion of “the shared experience” of movie-going as part of this year’s Lake Placid Film Forum. We would love to have you add YOUR memories of a memorable theater and/or a memorable movie-going experience at a theater as part of our effort to bring awareness to the need to save our theaters.
In 500 words or less, describe a movie-going experience that made an impact on you, and identify the theater involved. Please send your essays to Barry Snyder at firstname.lastname@example.org, with MY THEATER MEMORIES in the subject heading. The winning entry will win free tickets to a screening at this year’s Forum and will be posted on the Lake Placid Film Forum blog.
