It's 3 am and I am strapped in a hospital bed in New York City where I have been for a full week now. No, not in a psych ward - I had heavy spinal disc surgery. It's usually standard, but surgeons say I have one of the Top 20 worst cases ever recorded in the U.S. Giant bone fragment is crushing nerves to my legs and I can't move at all! I miss my films. So everyone watch a movie for me! I'm sure it's the morphine drip talking but I just wanted to share my terrible plight!

Brian,

When you get out you'll have to be careful how you pick up your GS's (or the like), get someone to help you with your 8mm screenings, I think in your case this will be the best therapy money can buy.

Get well soon!

Brian,

Have a speedy recovery. We'll have to bring CineSea to you. I'll haul the GS, Shorty & Lou can carry the screen, John will bring a few espressos, Steve's got the speakers, Joe will scatter some sand around and Claus & Gary have made great progress on their repertoire of seagull calls......

I think there's room for just one more film.....

Brian...if I lived in NY I would sneak a projector into your hospital room [Smile] I hope you are back on your feet soon. Hang in there and I will watch a couple films in your honor tonight.

Get well soon!

Seriously!

My wife had two stainless steel rods put in her back last winter. She came to CineSea and now she's doing great!

(Must be all the film in the room!)

Join us as soon as you can, Brian!

All I ask is a wide screen and a projector to light her by...
