Took last week off because I was slammed with work. For this week there was a call for some comedy to lighten the mood, so I'm going to show the animated short Logorama and Safety Last! w/Harold Lloyd.

One of the attendees is frustrated at people commenting during movies and getting up to refill their popcorn bowls, etc. and asked me to ask everyone to be still and quiet when the lights are down. I sympathized, but said as much as she might want it to be a cinema experience, it's going to be a living room experience, and a crackdown is guaranteed to be a total buzzkill and attendance-kill. I'll make sure she's in the seat where nobody moves into her line of sight.

Partially rescreened and rejected for comedy night: A Straightforward Boy, Schizopolis and Leningrad Cowboys Go America.

I love Safety Last!

two weeks pass...

Logorama and Safety Last! were a big hit, and so was the program of SF shorts the next week — A Trip to the Moon, La Jetée, Solar Walk and World of Tomorrow.

Taking this week off (2 weeks on then a week off seems to be working out best for everyone) and trying to decide what to show on the 29th. Maybe Tokyo Story.
