DEAR MR. WATTERSON
SUN. MAR. 16 @ 6:30PM
“Calvin & Hobbes” took center stage immediately when it appeared in newspaper comics across the country in 1985. The funny pages were a big part of popular culture, and it was hard to find a comics reader who didn’t like Calvin & Hobbes. A decade later, when Bill Watterson retired his strip, millions of readers felt the void left by the sudden departure of Calvin and his beloved tiger, and many fans would never find a satisfactory replacement. In his retirement, as he did during his career, Mr. Watterson has steadfastly declined to license his beloved Calvin and Hobbes characters for any wider commercial purposes, a principled decision that left perhaps hundreds of millions of dollars on the table. It has now been 18 years since the end of the Calvin & Hobbes era. Bill Watterson has kept an extremely low profile during this time, living a very private life in Ohio. Despite his quiet lifestyle, he is remembered and appreciated daily by fans who still enjoy his amazing collection of work. This film is not a quest to find Bill Watterson, or to invade his privacy. It is an exploration to discover why his ‘simple’ comic strip has made such an impact on so many readers, and why it still means so much to us today.
IN NO GREAT HURRY:
13 LESSONS IN LIFE
WITH SAUL LEITER
SUN. APR. 27 @ 6:30PM
Saul Leiter could have been lauded as the great the pioneer of color photography, but was never driven by the lure of success. Instead, he preferred to drink coffee and photograph in his own way, amassing an archive of beautiful work that is now piled high in his New York apartment. An intimate and personal film, “In No Great Hurry” follows Saul as he deals with the triple burden of clearing an apartment full of memories, becoming world famous in his 80s and fending off a pesky filmmaker.
For roughly 50% of American families divorce is an unpleasant fact of life. Dealing with divorce and its effects destroys lives and bankrupts individuals every day. Family law, which barely existed for most of our country’s history, has morphed into a gigantic industry over the past several decades. Learn first-hand about the excesses and injustices rampant in the U.S. family court system. Do not miss the riveting film that offers a spotless condemnation of family courts across America. In interviews with top insiders and an array of litigants, a place aptly termed “the last fiefdom of lawlessness and tyranny,” is uncovered.

August 24, 2013
What a wonderful month it has been since we wrapped our Indiegogo campaign. We are happy to report that donations are still arriving in the mail, and to date, we have raised, online and off, over $54,000! This is amazing beyond words. The only drawback is that we need a new wish list, as this campaign has obliterated the one we have been nursing for the last 5 years!
Also, as you might know, for the better part of the last year, I have been commuting forth-and-back from Gloucester to New Jersey, where my wife and baby daughter Zoë lived. I am so-very-not-sad to report that as of August 1, we have all been full-time North Shore residents. I am back to working a regular weekly schedule (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, plus plenty of home-office time, plus special events). Thank you for bearing with us, and I look forward to implementing all the great upgrades you’ve enabled with your generous donations.
Speaking of which, the deposit on the new projector has been made, and the installation booked (we will be closed for a couple days in September). It is brighter than we thought (10,000 candles), and will require a bit of MacGyvering to mask the fan noise (it was designed for a booth-in-the-back with a glassed aperture), but nothing we can’t handle, logistically or financially.
Our friends at Ostrow Electric (friends from my Worcester days and summer residents here) will complete our electrical upgrades next week, with 4 new counter outlets and 220v in the ceiling grid to accommodate the new projector. Thanks, Jonathan!
The occasionally organized space on the left as you enter the Cinema will no longer be used as a make-shift office and work space. Instead, it will become full-time seating space (with a riser) to handle all the sold-out shows we’ve been hosting lately.
We have purchase a back-up popcorn machine to handle the volume on those night during which popping might otherwise continue during the movie.
We are shopping for new PA gear, as we have just booked our November 1 Cape Ann Film Festival opener––THOMAS DOLBY!
After a visit to our friends at The Elm Draughthouse in Millbury, we have decided on a cost-efficient method of signing the building, which you can see from many blocks away (think the word “CINEMA” in blue LED).
While the bumper stickers have not arrived yet, we will avail your other thank-you gifts beginning today (please present ID at the counter). You can check out the Indiegogo page to see the list of thank-yous. Again, thank you to all who contributed to this essential campaign (and if you missed out, click here to donate now).
This crazy dream of ours is possible because you have shown us over the last five years that you want it. We are very grateful to be able to share our passion with you, and serve in true community fashion. Here’s to a friendship that lasts lifetimes!
Prices are for pick-up at the Cinema. Shipping is available for $5.00.
