Just thinking about Uncle Bill's Pancakes makes me happy.

Guy, I'd say if you join us you will find things have gotten bigger and better!

-We're still working on huge and perfect, but we like the way things are progressing!

(Who wants "huge" anyway?! -and "perfect" wouldn't make for a very relaxing weekend either..."STOP! -You're eating the main course with your salad fork!")

-but you will like the Friday Night Feature for certain.

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

I do like the Friday feature film screening idea. It doesn't need to be any bigger as long as it is able to, occasionally attract people from foreign lands like Iceland, Japan, and Texas.

I'd never want it to become so big it became unmanageable, unfriendly or became something other than what it was intended to be all along: a weekend of real film for people who appreciate it.

Still the same, there is that matching space in the hotel next door:

 -

-just in case we want to dream a little! [Wink]

(-and find out what kind of car is under that tarp!)

Speaking as somebody who had basically nothing to do with starting it, CineSea has a certain genius to it. Here you have an event that started out with barely enough people to put on a decent baseball game, yet it all comes together and it just works. The venue works out because the hotel likes us and wants us there. The people who come are supportive because we enjoy ourselves and want it to continue for years.

There are a lot of great things to do in Wildwood, and a lot of great places to go out to eat. Even putting it in a city with an accessible single screen 35mm theater is a bonus I would think is too much to even hope for, but there it is.

I had forgotten about that little cinema. It is my understanding that he will rent it out. I wish I could have been there that year when Dino made an appearance and projected some film. I think 9.5mm.

I am like you Steve; I enjoy the show just as it is. Same friendly faces and always one or two newbies.

Last October we went over there and saw Blazing Saddles in 35mm:

Scroll down towards the bottom.

It has to be one of the most unique cinematic experiences of my entire life! We were watching a movie in a real theater, but we were guests instead of "patrons". The booth door was open the whole time, and it was OK to drop in and visit. We knew the projectionist as well as the owner of the place.

-It was just a spur of the moment thing too: we were invited, so we went!

Outstanding. I certainly hope to be there again this October.

Those of you living in North America, do yourselves a favor and come. Same for our friends across the pond.

John Black and I had the idea after Cherry Hill went under - Just a simple place to enjoy everyone's company and show films - It works because we all care enough not to call it work, simply a happy time - Dino should join us again, the 9.5 prints were incredible - Segments I've never seen - Uncle Bill's a joy - Our dinners together, the ambiance, the endless shop-talk, laughter and learning experiences - Overseas, please come to CINESEA - Shorty

I don't know when the voting starts for the Friday night feature screening but I am voting for Doug Meltzer's copy of MASTER AND COMMANDER. I am sure that wide-screen movie would be a great treat.

Always an unforgettable event for us "film enthusiasts" [Wink]

You'd be hard-pressed to find another group of nicer folks, as well as all of the knowledge of all things film-related.

I am doing my best to make the trip back this year.

TRAVEL RECOMMENDATION:

If you are driving from the DC/MVA area, I highly recommend taking your car on the Lewes/Cape May ferry, at least one-way for the trip. It will chop a few miles off the driving, and very relaxing ride as well. I always ride it over, and when you get off in Cape May, NJ, you are only about 30 minutes from CINESEA!

Hope to see you all there.

Does anyone have a schedule of events for this? I want to pop in at some point, but I want to be able to purchase some prints.

Doug,

It comes twice a year! If not this time, we'll be there for you next time.

If you can make it you won't even be the only Ohioan there!

My attitude about this is the best reason anybody should come is because it's actually good for them!

Back about four years ago I was struggling in a new job and that Friday it wasn't looking good. My boss told me if a budget cut came I was no better than second in line to get the axe.

I was a mess!

I came to Wildwood, relaxed and enjoyed myself and came back to work feeling much better, and things have been better ever since.

I'm not saying CineSea saved my job, it was just a welcome change of scenery at exactly the right moment.

We all have crap to deal with:

-Your car burns more oil than gasoline. You can afford a new one, but only if you sell a kidney.
-Your new boss is 25 years old and is only there because his parents own the company. Last week he decreed all memos are to be in text-speak.
-You fixed the roof last week, and now the foundation is leaking.
-Your neighbor has a garage band and an amplifier that dims the entire neighborhood when he turns it on.
-Your 16 year old wants a full body tattoo.
-You looked in the mirror this morning and saw your Dad looking back at you. (He didn't look very happy.)

You need a break! This is a good one!

Its what people used to call "Good, clean fun".

Dave,

This is the basic schedule:

Upcoming Film Conventions

There is also a Sunday breakfast: not an official event, but it's always happened.
