Even as their play festival winds down, Park Circle is hardly going to be quiet. Proof: The recently formed Greater Park Circle Film Society will launch the Olde Village Talking Picture House on Saturday, December 6.
In their self-proclamation, they announced they plan to bring "movies and experiences that you will not find at mainstream theatres, foster appreciation for the art of film, and work with local schools to present special showings of student films and other projects."
MyParkCircle.com wrote about the new venue, in part:
Initially, there will be two weekly showings. One will be a Saturday afternoon matinee and the other on Saturday evening. Beer/wine/soft drinks will be sold along with light food fare. Films, notably independent films, documentaries, and shorts, representing the themes of “humanitas” (coined by Cicero to define the “good person”) and “communitas” (feeling of social equality, solidarity & togetherness) will be shown.
Live in the area and want to have a say in what you may one day watch? Then fill out their online survey.
If you want to learn more, an information meeting is being held at the Old Meeting Place on November 5 at 6 p.m. And MyParkCircle's account is pretty comprehensive.
As the movie bulbs dim on the Peninsula, it's great to see the spirit grow in Park Circle.
Thanks to the Charleston City Paper for tipping us off.
